Overwhelmed by the Holidays?
For many, the holiday season is a time of joy and celebration, but for some, the stretch from Thanksgiving to New Year’s is not always the most wonderful time of the year. High expectations, loneliness and stress can lead to being overwhelmed.
Feeling like your problems are larger than life? We all carry stress, and some days that stress can feel heavier than others. Stress is a normal part of life, but make sure you check in on yourself and know how to manage it in a healthy way.
