Its that time of the year when days are getting shorter, and nights are getting longer which for many brings some depression. To make things worse, we are being bombarded with the bright lights, decorations and ongoing advertisements of the holiday season. Work schedules, home schedules and sleep schedules are changed. We are eating sweet holiday treats loaded with sugar that creates huge energy swings.

The expectation of gift giving also hits all our emotional buttons producing financial and even more emotional stress.
The holidays also remind us of people who are no longer in our lives. That cumulative grief can be very taxing and make us feel isolated. Finally, many family gatherings involve difficult relationships. Rather than feeling safe and nurtured, many feel anxious when they go home for the holidays.
