DON'T get stressed by the holidays. Get your Zen on. Holistic wellness coach Prakriti "Pax" Tandon offers the following suggestions:

* Keep a gratitude journal. Each night, write down five things you are thankful for.

* Practice mindfulness. Take at least two minutes out of your day to pause and go within.

* Download an application, such as the Insight Timer, to help your meditation practice.

* Remember that the best present this holiday season is your presence.

* Don't wait till December; buy holiday gifts all year 'round.

* Do a time out if you find yourself stressed at the mall.
