Although the holidays are a time of joy for many, they can also trigger symptoms of anxiety and depression to different degrees.

Regardless of one’s religious affiliation, the holiday season often inspires feelings of warmth, joy, and belonging. But for some people, this time of year can evoke feelings of loneliness, stress and anxiety. The holiday blues are a real phenomenon, but they are likely to have different effects than you might think.

There are several reasons we talk about in this show, of why people may experience symptoms of anxiety or depression over the holidays. Example of reasons we discuss include: Lack of planning, Unrealistic fantasies about your families, Unrealistic expectations about yourself, and more. We also talk about coping skills and how you can safety get through this holiday season and the holiday blues it comes with.
