6 Ways to Survive the Holidays

From making time for naps to consuming lots of eggnog, we're helping you make it to 2016. 

Let's face it, the holidays might be the most wonderful time of the year — but that doesn't make them any easier to deal with. Between the never-ending barrage of cocktail parties, to having to buy all those gifts for other people and those awkward family dinners, December isn't always just a bunch of kisses under the mistletoe. And with Christmas Day only a week away, we've decided to put together a little guide to help you make it through this trying time. So take a deep breath because things are about to get real.

1.  Drink A Lot of Eggnog

Especially if it has a generous helping of brandy, rum, or bourbon mixed in (because how else will your sweet Aunt Sally's rendition of "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer" sound melodious)?

2.  Remember to Break a Sweat

The holidays are full of temptation (in the form of cookies, cakes, and candy) but working out can help relieve seasonal stress, too. From yoga classes to boxing sessions, the PRIV app will help you sweat it out after all that 'nog. Because let's face it...

3.  Gift Yourself

While you're out braving the crowds trying to nail down the perfect gift for your creepy Uncle Lou, you might want to pick out a little something for yourself. (Because everyone knows *you* make the best Santa.)

4.  Unwind with a Soothing Massage

Book an appointment with one of PRIV's expert masseuses and all the stress of having to explain — yet again — why you're still single will suddenly melt away. 

5.  Make Time for Some ZZZs


Considering the holidays are a never-ending cycle of being polite to people you dislike or hardly know, it should be no surprise that you're going to get run down. And there's really no better way to stay healthy than by catching up on your beauty sleep.
Remember, the holidays are a marathon, not a sprint. 

6.  Watch Love Actually...

...on loop.
