Three Ways to Stress Proof Your Home for a Healthy Holiday Season

Posted by Jessica

It’s normal to feel some stress and anxiety as the holidays approach, but setting up your home environment to minimize stress can help you cope. Here are three things you can do around your house now to help reduce stress and promote a healthy holiday season.


1. Declutter. The holiday season always brings more stuff into our homes. Make space for holiday gifts and décor now to prevent clutter from stressing you out during the holidays.

2. Set up your bedroom to support healthy sleep. Getting plenty of quality rest is important to help reduce stress, especially during stressful times like the holiday season. As you work on decluttering, don’t forget your bedroom. A disorganized bedroom can create anxious feelings that make falling asleep more difficult. In addition to organizing your bedroom, you can help promote healthy sleep by softening your bedroom lighting. Using soft, yellow sunset-like lighting in the evening signals your body to produce melatonin, a sleep-inducing hormone. Many healthy lighting options from OttLite feature three color temperature modes so you can customize your lighting levels and support a healthy sleep-wake cycle.

3. Simplify how you sanitize. Wouldn’t it be nice to keep surfaces inside your home clean all through the holidays without the stress of cleaning them? With an OttLite Sanitizing Desk Lamp, cleaning your space can be as simple as turning on your light. Powered by patented SpectraClean sanitizing technology, this healthy lighting option is the only desk lamp designed to kill harmful bacteria.
