How to Decrease Holiday Stress and Burnout
When you think about “the holidays” (whatever holidays you celebrate) what are some of the first things to come to mind? Those two words probably produce all kinds of memories and emotional reactions peppered with jolly media images. If you are like most people, you are feeling a mix of excitement, stress, and anxiety.
This is supposed to be a joyful and spiritual time of year filled with sharing, warmth, giving, and feelings of gratitude. Right? Well, for a lot of people, the idea of shopping, cooking, hosting, parties, traveling, and dragging kids around is stressful and overwhelming. If you are entering the holiday season already tired, over-worked, and over-scheduled, the holidays can feel like over-load; like a parade of awkward uncles, indigestion, obligation, and endless hours spent waiting in line. If you are more then stressed around this time of year, then you may even be experiencing burnout.
