Enjoying the Holidays in Spite of the Hype!

  • Does your stress level begin to edge up as the holidays approach? 
  • Does this time of year drain you of energy in spite of the cheerful ads and commercials? 
  • Do you find yourself taking care of everyone but yourself? 
  • Do you find that your to-do list gets so overwhelming that you can’t turn off the thinking and planning? 

Anxiety and stress levels often skyrocket during the busy holiday season. In addition to the many items on our “to-do” lists – baking, sending cards, decorating, shopping, and entertaining, and, and, and… the cultural hype of “the happiest time of the year” creates unrealistic expectations and can easily overwhelm us, leaving us exhausted and waiting for it all to just be over.

Please join us as we explore the dynamics and physical impact of this challenging holiday spiral, and learn realistic strategies to ease the stress and bring balance to this time of year. A panel of community professionals will discuss mental and physical health and wellness, and offer useful strategies that will help us better enjoy this wonderful and time of the year in spite of the hype!
