Are the holidays a stressor for you? If so, you’re not alone. Americans list lack of money (61%), the pressures of gift giving (42%), lack of time (34%) and credit card debt (23%) as top causes of holiday stress. Findings also show that one in five Americans are worried that holiday stress could affect their physical health.
To deal with stress from the season:
- Set goals that are within reach.
- Find out what’s causing stress and take action.
- Nurture your well-being.
- Reconnect with family and friends.
Not only will you survive the holidays, you’ll also thrive in the New Year.
