Blog # 21 One More Article on Holiday Stress?

Any of us could probably write the standard article on holiday stress. There have been myriads of them. We know the basic principles of stress management. Employing them during the holidays is a wise idea. However, there is another aspect to handling the holidays that we may not always consider.

It is a given that during this season the typical challenges of life and human tragedy do not subside. Economic and family issues from the past and present remain. Grief, loss and health issues continue. Aging advances.

Juxtaposed among all of these aspects of life are the lights, sights, smells and sounds of the season. Because of this one has two choices. Use this as an opportunity for feeling even worse about one’s circumstances or gather the message of the season into one’s heart and being in order to carry on with more balance and hope.
