Celebrating holidays is a way that we connect with others by sharing memories and traditions. Work/Life Connections-EAP gives advice on how to manage the stressful moments that may be experienced during the holiday season as we continue onward through the pandemic.
The heightened distress of this polarizing political climate combined with the anxiety of the pandemic we have been experiencing since March 2020, has us all riding an emotional roller coaster. It is accelerating and we feel like we can't get off. These environmental stressors impact our daily lives and we have little control over the course of these traumas. Thus, we must find ways to manage our distress and anxiety.
