Mental Health Monday: The Holi-daze

December 2, 2019

Ho, ho, ho! Thanksgiving is over and we're now staring down at the final month of the year. And boy, is it an especially eventful one! December is chock full of parties, gift giving, family get-togethers, and putting on an extra few pounds (wait, I thought you said that these Christmas cookies were non-fat?). Regardless of what you celebrate this time of year, you have to admit that the holiday season isn't all that it's Nutcrackered up to be. Maybe you're in grief over the loss of a loved one, grappling with Depression, or find yourself miles away from home during this time of year. Let's talk some tips and tricks that can help you tackle your seasonal lows and feeling more yourself in December and all year long.
