You Need This #MomentOfChill

MANCHESTER, Vermont – The holiday season is a time of joy and fellowship, but it can also put a person through the wringer. According to the American Psychological Association, 70% of Americans feel increased stress due to lack of time, the pressure of gift-giving, and difficulty managing expectations. That’s why Orvis has a gift for you—something you can enjoy guilt-free throughout the season.

From November 15 through December 25, pause and de-stress from the frantic pace of the holidays with a daily #MomentofChill – which may involve a frolicking puppy, a crackling fireplace, or the soothing ripples of an untouched stream.

Every day from the week before Thanksgiving through Christmas Day, Orvis will post a “Moment of Chill” video on Facebook and Instagram. While going over your to-do list or worrying about what to get your in-laws, stop and take a moment for yourself. Reconnect to the adventure and wonder of the natural world as you sit back and relax to the sights and sounds of fly fishing on a babbling brook; zone out to the beautiful scenery of Wyoming, New Zealand, or Vermont; or imagine yourself in front of a warm fireplace with a sleeping pup.

The videos run between 30 and 60 seconds, allowing viewers to indulge in a rare holiday #MomentofChill.

For more information and to see all the videos, please visit our website at Or, follow along on Facebook or Instagram.
