By Candice Chaplin | August 26 2019 | NonfictionHolidaysHealth

Forty-five percent of Americans would prefer to skip Christmas, according to a survey from Think Finance and reported on NBC News. That should tell you something about our coping mechanisms when it comes to handling holiday stress.

Yoga may be a solution. Yoga can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure and lower your heart rate. According to a recent survey conducted by the Yoga Alliance and Yoga Journal, between 2012 and 2016 the number of Americans doing yoga rose from 20.4 million to 36 million. In fact yoga popularity statistics show that 15% of Americans have done yoga in the last 6 months.
