Give someone a big hug
Okay, it sounds super simple, but trust me, it works. Hugs are extremely therapeutic and they can actually help lower blood pressure and diminish stress. But make sure it's not a quick one: studies show longer hugs, typically lasting around 20 seconds, produce the best stress-relieving results. So, get hugging!
Help out with dinner
That feast on the table? Yeah, that takes work. But lending a hand won't go unnoticed. Try bringing your own dish, arriving early to help cook the meal, setting the table, or cleaning the dishes. Your host will be sure to thank you.
Give an unexpected gift
Bring a game
Now, have a Happy Thanksgiving!
