Holiday Stress

There’s a lot of pressure in our society to be happy, especially during the holidays. However, for many, the holidays can be a reminder of painful memories – like the divorce they are going through, the loss of a loved one or the distance between those they are closest to.

Oftentimes, feelings of depression, anxiety and stress are likely to build during this time. If you have lost a loved one or are struggling with change in your family – this may be a time when the change may feel more prominent. Your family may need to alter a tradition or celebrate in a different way to alleviate some of the pain.

If symptoms of anxiety or depression are keeping you company this holiday season, don’t lose hope. Take the first step to a better place by taking Bryan Medical Center’s anonymous and confidential online screening.
