Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa's elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn't fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results.

Ways to Decrease Stress & Anxiety

Trying to reduce the amount of stress in your life? Check out the following tips to help you put your mind at ease!

  1. Exercise! This is one of the most important ways to decrease stress. Physical stress on the body can help relieve mental stress in the mind.
  2. Supplements - There are a few natural things that could help reduce stress such as lemon balm, omega 3 fatty acids, and green tea.
  3. Burn a candle - Try lighting a candle and burning some calming scents including rose, lavender, sandalwood, or orange blossom.
  4. Reduce caffeine intake - Caffeine is a stimulant which can increase anxiety.
  5. Journal - writing down your stressors could help you get it off your chest, or instead try gratitude journaling and writing down what you’re grateful for!
  6. Chew gum - chewing gum causes brain waves similar to those people have when they’re relaxed, and it also promotes blood flow to the brain.
  7. Laugh - it’s hard to feel anxious when you’re laughing! This can also increase your overall well-being, immune system, and mood. Laughing also relieves your stress response in your brain and relieves tense muscles.
  8. Take a yoga class - yoga focuses on connecting your body and mind and increases body and breath awareness. It also may help lower cortisol levels, blood pressure, and heart rate and increase GABA neurotransmitters.
