Neurologist Dr. Romie Mushtaq Shares Stress Relieving Tips, How To Ease Stomach Upset

The holiday season can be so stressful for so many of us! Every year I say I’m going to take it easy and not work as hard so I can catch a break, and this year, I made the wise decision to not book any new projects after my beloved dog Lucy died the day before Thanksgiving. I knew I should have done this last year after my grandma/best friend passed away on October 31st, but I didn’t want to upset anyone. I thought to myself, this time I’m prepared! I’m going to take care of me.

Boy, did I have it all wrong. I guess I was under the impression that the hustle and bustle of the holiday season was just going to stop, that any issues that could happen wouldn’t happen because I’m sad and that I was actually going to have time to rest, possibly make a Christmas wreath or two…and have the time to enjoy my family! After experiencing an awful migraine last week and my first cold/flu in a few years, I am certain that in addition to not booking new projects, I should have also learned techniques to help combat the stress that we all experience during the holidays.

On Friday, renowned neurologist Dr. Romie Mushtaq joined me for an interview to share some stress relieving tips we can all use this holiday season and into the new year. It’s no secret that stress can also cause stomach upset, and Dr. Romie also mentioned how Culturelle probiotics can help eliminate this problem.
