Holiday Stress

As joyful as the holidays are, they can feel challenging as well. Money crunches, family conflict and lack of time can bring on feelings of stress.
So how do you keep it all in check? Try to remember the big picture.
Very few things in life can turn out perfectly, and the holidays are no exception. Someone won’t like their gift, relatives will butt heads and the holidays — and life — will go on.
Today’s headaches turn into tomorrow’s laughable tales. Just be sure to take time for yourself, acknowledge your feelings and treat yourself well.
Even if you feel like you don’t have a second to spare, grant yourself a few minutes to connect with friends, watch a funny movie or squeeze in a workout. Doing things that put you in a positive mood will help you cope with all of the little challenges that the holidays can bring.
