7 ways to minimize stress on Black Friday (infographic)

Nov. 21, 2018

After a filling holiday feast, there's nothing sweeter than Black Friday deals. Kick off a stress-free shopping season by following these quick tips from Olga Hays, a health promotion specialist at Sharp HealthCare.

7 ways to minimize stress on Black Friday (infographic). Between the chaos and the crowds, Black Friday can be downright stressful. These tried-and-true tips will keep you happy and healthy as you dominate the shopping aisles. 1) Strategize. Plan stores to tackle by making a list ahead of time. Be sure to include a Plan B, in case hot items leave shelves bare. 2) Rise and shine. Up your energy by getting a good night’s sleep. And after your Thanksgiving feast, you’ll appreciate the snooze! 3) Don’t mall eat. Hitting the food court will make you irritable later – when carbs and sugar wear off. Opt for portable snacks like sliced fruit, trail mix or string cheese. 4) Keep hydrated. Bring a water bottle and refill it when it’s dry. By staying hydrated your body will stay energized and your mind will stay focused. 5) Dress for success. Opt for comfy gear and a good set of running shoes. You’ll need to stay on your feet and maneuver the crowds! 6) Create your own sweat session. Black Friday is the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself – park far from the mall, wear an activity tracker and add laps between stores. 7) Shop online. To stomp out stress, skip the stores and go online instead. Cyber Monday offers many of the same sales, plus you avoid long checkout lines. From the expert: My biggest tip for a stress-free shopping experience is simple – take it easy! Go with the flow and don’t let yourself get overwhelmed. Remember, it’s just shopping, so allow yourself to enjoy the experience. – Olga Hays, ACE-certified personal trainer and health promotion specialist at Sharp HealthCare.
