How to Cope with Holiday Stress

The holiday season is supposed to be a joyous time, however, according to the Mayo Clinic, the holidays cause a lot of stress with all the added responsibilities like attending parties, shopping, baking, cleaning, and entertaining. It can be very demanding of our time with our already busy lives and it can negatively affect our health.

When you feel that stress is getting out of control, doctors often advise to take a step back and regroup. If it is possible, it is important to try and prevent it in the first place. The Mayo Clinic and WebMD have some suggestions to help you manage your health, and particularly stress, during this holiday season:

 

If you feel that stress, sadness or anxiousness persists, and you feel overwhelmed, please talk to your doctor or mental health professional as soon as possible.
