The Holiday Season Can Be A Stressful Time of Year-Walden Wants to Remind You That We’re Here to Help!

Tags: Walden, Holiday, Stress, Hotline, Appointment

Walden would like to share some tips on reducing stress during the holiday season:
1. Focus on what’s important to you during the holidays (this is different for everyone)
2. Instead of buying things for everyone focus on doing something FOR someone else and keep a budget
3. Spend time with your kids, make cookies, look at Christmas lights instead of buying them everything they want
4. Plan, make lists and set boundaries on what you can and can’t do

We would like to remind you that we are here to talk to this time or anytime of year! To schedule an appointment at one of our locations please call 888-912-7366. Happy holidays from everyone at Walden!
