Tis the Season to be Stressed
The holiday season can be a joyful time to spend with loved ones, eat delicious food and create happy memories. Yet, for many people, dealing with difficult family members, maxing out credit cards and putting impossibly high expectations on ourselves can make the holiday season anything but joyful. Heightened holiday stress can be harmful to health, and, if not dealt with properly, stress can lead to problems such as alcohol abuse, binge eating, arguing with relatives and depression. To talk about ways to cope with these stressful situations, right in time for the holidays, is guest Bette Alkazian, M.A., LMFT, BCPC, a Marriage and Family Therapist, Parenting Coach and nationally recognized parenting expert who works with families to ease the challenges and increase the joys of raising children.
