The holiday season is upon us once again! That can mean different things to different people. For some, it’s a lovely time of celebration with close friends and family. For others, it’s a time of sadness, loneliness, or a painful reminder of unhealed family wounds. Regardless of what this season brings up for you, it’s important to consider how it will impact you. The brain doesn’t distinguish between positive and negative stress so even great experiences can leave us feeling exhausted (ever feel like you need a vacation after a vacation!?). These tips can help you get ahead of the holiday stress. We hope they’re a helpful tool to help you maintain your mental and emotional well-being!
