The holidays are a stressful time of year for many, especially those who are susceptible to bouts of anxiety and depression. While the holidays are filled with family get-togethers, delicious food, and cheer, they can also be quite stressful. People often resort to bad habits when the holidays hit, something which many pay for once the merry season is over. There are numerous reasons for this, but for one, people tend to experience heightened emotions during the holidays. These emotions can be both good and bad – ranging from loneliness and angst to happiness and elation. This juxtaposition of emotions can wreak havoc on the mind and body, which is why it is important to learn how to manage your anxiety during this busy time of year. According to the American Psychological Association (APA), almost half of all women in the United States experience high levels of stress during the holidays. This doesn’t just impact how they are feeling day-to-day, but it can put their health at risk. Unfortunately, many people turn to food and alcohol when stress levels are high. While this may seem like a good way to “take the edge off”, it can actually do more harm…

There are many reasons why a family may want to look into therapy, from raising children with disabilities, financial stresses, behavioral challenges, and the various stages of different children and family members that may need some outside assistance.

Therapy has helped millions of people cope with a wide range of emotional and mental problems, including anxiety, stress, grief, and depression. This form of treatment can be incredibly effective, as long as you are working with the right therapist for you and your needs. Finding a good therapist may not happen right away, and that’s OK. It is important that you take your time and make sure you are working with someone you trust and who makes you feel cared for and understood. You may want to look for someone who specializes in the type of emotional problem you are experiencing, or perhaps take a recommendation from a doctor or other person in your life who knows what you have been going through. A good therapist will work closely with you, helping you address your problems and become a stronger, healthier, more self-aware individual. That being said, it is important to note that a therapist cannot ‘fix’ you or do everything for you.
