Coping with depression around the holidays

by The 100 Companies

As “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” plays across the country, the holidays are anything but wonderful for many. Holiday-induced stress and anxiety cause even the most cheerful to feel like a Grinch.

For many, the holidays bring sadness, loneliness and grief. Dysfunctional family gatherings with unresolved conflict and overconsumption of alcohol can be extremely difficult.

For those in recovery, festive cocktail-fueled parties and the stressful hustle can be triggers for relapse. But it is possible to enjoy the holidays with a realistic outlook by staying balanced with our time, eating habits and activities, and supporting those struggling.
