The holiday season brings with it joy and anticipation and, perhaps too often, a sense of overwhelming stress. It's been scientifically proven that stress impacts the immune system. The question of whether stress causes disease has been answered; now the question is "how"? Part of the answer lies in learning to manage stress. Doing so can reduce the risk of heart disease, digestive disorders, skin disorders including Shingles, as well as anxiety, depression, insomnia, and even cancer.
In this episode, we'll talk about how holiday traditions shape our desires and expectations. Traditions can often provide comforting familiarity, but they can also be a source of stress. Together with Kathy LaTour, Editor at Large of CURE Magazine, we'll delve into a list of do's and do not’s to help listeners avoid stress-causing pitfalls. Kathy will put a spotlight on what's healthy and what's not, when it comes to the dynamic of "tradition."
Strategies that lend to advance planning, maintaining self-care, and keeping communication channels open are especially important amid the holiday hustle and bustle. We'll talk about how those strategies not only contribute to a sense of calm, they literally affect one's immune system. Kathy LaTour will uncover simple immune boosters that are linked to our thoughts and actions. Even food choices, adequate sleep, and healthy relationships impact our ability to override stress and savor the joy of the season.
Join us for the sake of tradition as we explore what's healthy and what's not. Meet Kathy LaTour and get a peek at what's coming in her 2014 quarterly guest spots on Because Hope Matters Radio.
