Holiday Stress-Relief Freebies [Printable Coloring Page & Gift Tags]

by - December 24, 2020





Despite the holidays being marketed as “the most wonderful time of the year," many people still experience heightened feelings of stress, sadness, and anxiousness during this time. These holiday blues could be attributed to any of the following:

  • Loneliness
  • End-of-year career stress
  • The financial strain that can come with gift-giving
  • Unrealistic holiday expectations
  • Family gatherings

—not to mention, the added layer of stress that has inherently come with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Taking time to clear your mind, slow down, and temporarily remove yourself from the hustle and bustle of the holidays can be an effective way to manage stress and feelings of anxiousness. How, you ask? Try coloring!

Studies show that coloring can actually relax your brain. The simple act of coloring can temporarily take the attention of yourself or the stressors in your life and help you feel more relaxed.

Print out the stress-relief coloring page above or gift it to a loved one this season. This is a great activity for a quick mental health break during the day if you feel stress coming on or to unwind in the evening.






Sending health-focused care packages during the holiday or winter season can also be an effective way to minimize a loved one’s stress, anxiety, or depression.

Here are a few care-package ideas:

  • COVID-19 Care Package: hand sanitizer, face mask, cozy socks, candle, toilet paper, a stay-at-home game
  • For Aging Adults: personal care items/toiletries, puzzle, warm blanket, encouraging card or letter
  • Encouraging Self-Care: scented candle, spa/grooming products, eye mask, essential oils, herbal tea
  • Get Well Soon Care Package: tissues, DVD or book, soup, mug
