Top 5 Holiday Stress-Busters & The Holiday Stress-Busting Guide

"It's the most wonderful stressful time of the year!" 

Holidays and family togetherness can be wonderful and/or miserable. Either way, there's a LOT to do over the holidays and it can get pretty stressful, and tense, quite quickly.
In response, a few years ago I was asked by a few TV stations to come talk about how to reduce stress over the holidays. The Top 5 Holiday Stress-Busters (free download) is what I shared. That got me thinking about our own holiday stresses in our family and extended families as well as all the ways I've helped my clients deal with the stress of family togetherness over the holidays. So five stress-busters quickly turned into 100's of stress-busters for the holidays (see guide below).
While there are many things that contribute to holiday stress, in 2004, The American Psychological Association conducted a holiday stress survey and identified the top six stressors as follows:
  1. Money
  2. Gift-giving
  3. Lack of time
  4. Families
  5. Diet
  6. Children’s issues

This guide addresses each of these stressors in depth, as well as many others, with a focus on providing many more solutions than there are problems. That’s the way it should be.

This guide covers hundreds of ways to bust, cool, chill, deal and cope with all the various stresses of the holidays.

Here's what you'll get:

  • Hundreds and hundreds of practical, useful and effective stress-busting tips, strategies, mindsets, and techniques for dealing with every aspect of holiday stress.
  • Worksheets to help you put the concepts into action.
