Keeping the Grinch at Bay: Practical Tips for Handling Holiday Stress

E-mail Print PDF

Paterson, NJ (December 7, 2009) - For most adults, the holidays are a time of stress, no matter how you slice that fruitcake. We rush about, we spend too much, eat too much, drink too much and invest a lot of energy in "having a good time." Many of us will, instead, end up with bills, extra pounds, hangovers and disappointment.

Why are the holidays such a mixed blessing? Often the root of the problem lies in the differences between the expectations we have and the realities we face. We think of "Jingle Bells" and serene Currier and Ives images of idyllic snow scenes. What we get are traffic jams and inches of slushy, icy mess.

According to Lauren D. LaPorta, M.D., Chairman of Psychiatry, St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center, "There are generally four major sources of holiday stress, sometimes referred to as 'The Four F's of Holiday Friction: Finances, Fantasies, Family, and Food' This year, take a moment to reflect on these areas in your life. How do they affect you and what steps can you take to make this holiday a less stressful one?"
