2. Soothe your senses
No, it doesn’t have to be a cinnamon-scented pinecone, but yes, aromatherapy works. Take a few minutes to breathe deeply and take a whiff of something lavender, mint or chamomile to calm yourself down instantly.

3. Eat well
Let yourself have small servings of whatever you like—just keep your portion size in check. Before big bashes, snack on healthy, fiber-full foods like apples, popcorn or pretzels so you don’t go overboard at the buffet. The holidays are a great time to eat mainly vegetarian, too. You’ll ensure your bod gets tonsa nutrients, while staying away from all the extra fat.
4. Get rosy
