A tobacco-free non-electronic inhaler to quit smoking and vaping.
It’s December. For many, the holiday season comes with the gift of stress and pressure. Here is our guide to help you find calm in the crazy as you head into the holidays.
For some,the holiday’s are something that bring joy, while for others, it brings chaos: financial stress, changing restrictions, family drama, reminders of loss, social pressures, and the list goes on. We all have different things that the holiday’s bring up. The emotional burdens that go along with different times of the year and the holiday season, in particular, are often drenched in crazy.
Besides the emotional stressors that come with the holidays, there are also stressors related to time. Coordinating schedules with your friends and family, planning out how to sync school and work breaks, and fitting in time to find calm is a challenge. And while the 2020 Holiday season looks different than usual and maybe has fewer requirements on your time, it adds its own little dose of stress into the mix.
For most, financial stress is the biggest struggle during the holiday season. This comes as icing on the cake of 2020 for most people. While navigating the holidays, we spend money on gifts, travel, food, etc. The financial burden of the holidays can feel crushing and overwhelming. The average Canadian expects to spend over $588 CADon holiday gifts in 2020, in addition to holiday travel and entertaining expenses (CPA, 2020). And our friends in America are expected to spend $1248 USD over the holidays on gifts, travel, and entertaining (PwC, 2020). This significant increase in expenses for the month of December is surely overwhelming.
The first step of conquering the problem is accepting that you are stressed. We often push down our stress allowing it to accumulate into a larger problem. Foolishly, we think that we can get through it without effort. Typically, this thinking leads to increased exhaustion and overwhelm, not the opposite. It is important to realize what is causing you stress and to take action and find a way to relieve the pressure you are feeling.
After identifying the potential stressors and accepting they affect you, it’s time to take action. At this point, you may already have some ideas for how to reduce your feelings of anxiousness. Some of these pain points are avoidable while others are not.
Here are some simple actions you can take to naturally support your emotional health:
Exercise naturally lowers stress hormones like Cortisol and releases Endorphins, which helps to improve your mood (Healthline, 2020). Exercise is also a great way to take control of something and feel accomplishment.
Write it Down
Writing down what is stressing you is very helpful for recognizing what the stressors are and for acknowledging their impact as valid for yourself. This exercise is also an opportunity to step outside of your emotions and recognize your priorities.
Know when to say "No"
Often counteracting stress is as simple as saying no to some things. Due to the pressures and expectations of others, we often over-extend ourselves, especially during the holidays (although 2020 Christmas may look a little different). It is important to know our limits, define priorities, and make sure they are balanced, not only during the holidays but also throughout life.
Take a Breath
One simple way to relieve stress is by breathing. Yes, you read that right. Stop and focus on each inhale and exhale. This exercise promotes the wonderful feeling of calm. Close your eyes, count, and focus on the slow and methodical rhythm of inhaling through the nose and out of your mouth. This deep breathing breathing exercise slows your heart rate, counteracting stress (WebMD, 2020.)
Support your Body
One of the most important ways that you can reduce stress is by eating a balanced diet, moving your body everyday, and using natural calming natural aides, such as Lavender, Cedarwood, or Lemon essential oils.
What are you doing to slow down in the midst of your craziness? Have you stopped to take a breath and relax? Will you give yourself the space to find calm in the crazy? In the midst of uncertainty of 2020, let’s make the holiday season a little less stressful by taking action to find calm.

Best device to quit
One nicotine quitting pack and it got me through wanting to smoke or vape ANYTHING. I don’t know what voodoo you got in those cores, but I’m cured with the need/desire to smoke anything. can’t think of another product that actually delivered on their promise, thank you FUM!!!
I love everything about it...
I love everything about this product. Purchased it to stop smoking and it helped immensely. Since then have bought more cores and they are great. I recommend it to all my friends. Thank you!!!
I had been decreasing my nicotine use through vaping and had gotten to using 0mg juices. When switched to using only FUM, I was very happy with the ease and FREEDOM of the product. I see it now as a simple essential oil delivery system for personal on-the-go aromatherapy.
My husband has been using Fum
My husband has been using Füm inhaler to help quit his dipping habit. Seems to be helping with the cravings! It’s a journey but we are happy to have a natural way to help kick the habit!
Such a great tool to have!
This core has been so key for me in my 30 day challenge of making healthier eating choices. I cut back on dairy, processed sugar, grains, legumes, and coffee. I’m on day 22 and I’m not even craving any of these. It’s helped me to press pause, take some breaths, and reset my mind to stay strong. Definitely recommend!
Amazing for kicking habits
I’m a mental health and addiction counselor and am constantly trying to help clients quit smoking. Typically I suggest black pepper on a toothpick but ever since finding füm this is what I recommend! Their conquer cores are so wonderful for the recovery community!!!!
Pure, organic, ethically sourced, natural flavours.
I Love the feeling it gives me.
Completed 30 Day Smoke/Vape Free Challenge!
For what seems to be a simple idea, is a genius product. I tend to fidget and/or have a bit of an oral fixation especially during the work day. Very happy with it.
I absolutely love my Füm. The packaging is sustainable! The website give amazing information and the shipping was much faster than I anticipated! CUSTOMER FOR LIFE!
I cannot recommend Füm enough. Not only are the products high quality, customer service is on point. Way above and beyond my expectations! I have no reservations about being a repeat customer for life! Thank you, Füm!
Awesome product! I haven’t had a cigarette or vaped since I started replacing my habit with my FÜM! :)
FUM has helped my husband successfully quit smoking!! It worked! We are so grateful!
Absolutely love my Füm!
