Holiday Stress Toolkit

The holidays are the most wonderful time of the year — and the most stressful. What’s celebrated as a season of giving, fun, connection and relaxation can also bring anxiety, increased expectations, financial woes and grief. How can we still enjoy the season when we’re feeling overwhelmed or like something is missing?

Use these resources to understand the causes of holiday stress and how we can cope. You can print, distribute or share via social media the materials in this toolkit all season long. This time of year should be one we cherish, so let’s share some #HopeForTheHolidays.
