The holiday season is a time for family, togetherness, and good cheer—or, at least, it should be. Unfortunately, in a survey from Boon, 64% of people said they are affected by the “Holiday Blues”: more stress, less energy, and feelings of dread or loneliness. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Telemus’ Johannah Schiffer recently hosted an important webinar on bringing the joy back to your holiday season. Dr. Kimberly Byrd, LMSW, Ed.D and Chris Henrichs joined Johannah to share the keys to improving your mood and avoiding the holiday blues. Specifically, they discussed:
- Why the holiday season can be an emotional rollercoaster
- The common causes of stress and how to avoid them
- How focusing on self-care and setting boundaries can make the holidays more enjoyable
- Key techniques to help manage feelings of loneliness and stress during the holidays
