Avoiding Holiday Stress, Depression

Holidays can be stressful and for some of us they can be a time of sadness or depression. You can manage stress and minimize the holiday blues by planning ahead and taking care of yourself.
  • It's Okay to Be Sad. If someone close to your has died recently, or died around the holidays, acknowledge your grief. Don't pretend or force yourself to be happy.
  • Ask for Help. Whether it's help managing holiday expectations and obligations, or comfort when you feel sad or low - reach out to somone you trust. 
  • Learn to Say No. None of us can do everything for everyone, and holiday expectations can result in disappointment and regret. It's okay to decline an invitation - your friends and family will understand.
  • Get more tips for a healthy holiday season.
