The 6 or 8 week period spanning pre-Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day is arguably the most stressful time of year. On the upside, holidays can afford rich time with family and friends. On the downside, there are numerous pressures around money and time. A continuing barrage of advertising is either commercializing the season to an obnoxious level or painting an image of a holiday ideal that is impossible to live up to. A spate of parties can be fun, but they can also tempt us stray dangerously from our normal eating, drinking, exercise, and sleep habits. Plus, any fault lines we have in our lives seem to intensify – loneliness, grief, separation, family dynamics, etc. So while holidays can hold joys for many, the flip side can be pretty intense.

We’ve updated our holiday survival toolkit to help you and your staff get through the holidays. Plus, we remind our Members that your EAP is available 24-7-365 for help with any difficulties you may experience.
