If you're feeling caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays, the best thing you can do to combat stress is take a few minutes to treat yourself to something small and sure to boost your mood. These five tiny indulgences won't take much time and cost little (if any) money, but they're sure to perk you up for the rest of the day!
1. Get a Manicure
Drop in to your neighborhood nail salon-there might even be one at the mall where you're doing your holiday shopping!-for a basic manicure. The service typically costs around $15 and should only take 30 minutes, so you'll be on your way and looking fabulous in no time!

2. Drink a Tasty Treat
One of the best things about the holidays is the selection of deliciously indulgent drinks available at Starbucks. Pop by and pick up a peppermint mocha or an eggnog latte to sip it as you run your errands and things will suddenly seem brighter.

4. Enjoy a Winter Stroll
While it can seem foreboding at times, don't let winter weather get you down. Instead, take time to enjoy it. Bundle up in your favorite coat, grab the kids or dog, and take a walk around the neighborhood to enjoy the festive Christmas lights. The best part is it's free!
