Parties, gatherings, shopping, gift giving – this is the perfect picture of the Holidays, but wait, do you know that more people suffer stress and depression during this time of the year?
The best way to deal with holidays-induced stress is to take a vacation – to literally escape all the anxiety and stress. With a vacation, you can truly enjoy an amazing time of the year just like it should be. Stress free.
How the Holidays Stress You Out:
There are many reasons why the Holidays can be stressful instead of being festive. The long list of things to do and activities can be exhausting. Some find traditions very obligatory from visiting and kissing all your aunts and uncles and the tasks to make the perfect Holiday events like dinners and parties are just too much! From the planning to the cleaning to dealing with relatives – why do we put ourselves through it all every single year?
The stressors exist in the workplace as well. Wither you have been planning events, or attending, or both, and then when it comes to your own family, you simply don’t have the energy anymore. We also spend too much time and money shopping for the perfect gifts, and at the end of the day we don’t feel as if it was worth it. By the time next year rolls around you’ve forgotten what the “perfect gifts” you sought after were.
