Manage Stress During
the Holidays and Beyond
‘Tis the season when rain is interspersed with falling snow, tiny tots have their eyes all aglow, and Santas are heard bellowing Ho Ho Ho.

For too many of us though, December becomes the month we engage in the sports of competitive parking, racing for diminished time, and watching passively as our waistlines increase and our wallets decrease in size.
