Holiday Stress is a Thing!  Nine Stress Busters Get you Through It!

Stress throughout the holidays is a thing, not a figment of your imagination. It’s a real thing that can drag you down, make you grumpy and cause you to wish you’d never signed up for this whole “mom” thing. The Mayo Clinic has even written articles about it, saying that holiday stress can cause depression and anxiety and can lead to overeating and alcohol abuse. (Let’s face it, we could all use a glass of wine right now, right!) So, how can we prevent the inevitable lows?  What’s the best path to minimizing the stress and ensuring that you can...
