It’s December – which means the holidays are officially kicking into high gear (although I’ve secretly had my tree up since before Thanksgiving). And with the holidays comes tons of fun activities – cheerful reunions and extra time with loved ones, feelings of nostalgia, twinkling lights, and my favorite – lighting those winter-scented candles on a cold night.
But for many of us, the holidays also signal an uptick in stress – from time constraints, to tight wallets and the stress of finding the perfect gift (and wrapping it!), to trying to navigate the increase in unhealthy foods in every direction. I think we can all agree we’ve got a few more things on our to-do lists this time of the year than normal.
