Taking the stress out of the holiday season

While this is a wonderful time of year for enjoying holiday rituals, it’s inevitable that crowded malls, worsening traffic, and too many events in too little time will wear on us.

“There are the commercials, and it’s so hyped up that it should just be perfect. And that is a very unrealistic expectation,” said Dr. Pamela Everett Thompson.

Kathleen Hall, founder and chief executive officer of the Atlanta-based Stress Institute, said that if people are feeling low, they should consider switching things up.

She suggested volunteering or starting a new holiday tradition by going on a trip or decorating in a new way.

See the Family section of Wednesday’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for tips for keeping the stress out of the season.
