Tips to Ease Holiday Stress

EAP Navigator

The holiday season can be a particularly stressful time. Busy schedules, family get–togethers, and added financial pressures can increase the stress of everyday life.

– Follow these tips to deal with stress during the holidays:

– Have realistic expectations. Don't expect everything to be perfect.

– Know your financial limits and budget your spending. Don't feel like you have to buy everyone an expensive gift.

– Don't try to do too much. Ask others for help when you need it.

– It's okay to say no. Don't feel that you need to accept every invitation you receive.

– If you've recently experienced a breakup, death in the family, or other tragedy, holidays can be especially stressful. Ask friends and family to be understanding if you don't feel like participating in the festivities.
