Woman Overwhelmed by Holiday

As the holiday season draws near, filled with festive lights and warm gatherings, it's essential to recognize that this time of joy can also be a source of anxiety for many.

Remember that self-care is essential during the holiday season. Listen to your needs, set realistic expectations, and prioritize your well-being. 

Recognizing Clinical Anxiety: While it's normal to experience heightened stress during the holidays, persistent and overwhelming anxiety may indicate a more clinical condition.
