Lafayette Therapist Shares Insight on Dealing With the Holiday Stress
LAFAYETTE, La. (KPEL News) - Christmas time is here and even the weather is starting to cooperate!
What's known as "the most wonderful time of the year" can also be the most stressful. From the pressures that come with gift-giving to hosting holiday parties to dealing with the loss of a loved one, the holidays can certainly bring on the blues for many people.
Hannah Comeaux, a Licensed Professional Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist whose business Comeaux Counseling and Consulting is based in Lafayette, sees the holiday blues when she speaks with clients on a weekly basis.
Although it’s an exciting time to connect with family and friends to share some cheer, holiday stressors can steal the joy from the season.
Hannah offers these tips for reducing holiday stress.
Hannah Comeaux: "The two biggest holiday stressors are time and money! Sometimes we overbook our schedule because we want to do everything due to fear of missing out. Collaborate with your spouse or family on where you will spend the holiday and budget appropriately so that overspending is not an issue. We can often get caught up with the idea that everything has to be perfect. It’s important to manage expectation. Everything doesn’t have to be perfect!"
