Handling Stress Through the Holidays

In Great Britain, the word "holiday" has the same meaning as vacation.  Many Americans would find this comparison laughable.  For most of us, the holidays comes with our own "to-do" lists.

Too often we take holiday stress for granted.  What's worse, we often have higher expectations for this season than for any other time of the year.  Planning for the holidays can leave us feeling impatient, cranky and, in some cases, depressed.  When the realities of day-to-day life conflict with our efforts to make the holiday season perfect, stress results. 

Come to this seminar on Handling Stress Through the Holidays to learn some fun and creative ways to minimize the overall stress of the season which will help you to create realistic goals and enhancing an enchanting holiday atmosphere.
