When you think of the holiday season, festive decorations, family and presents probably come to mind. However, it can also be a stressful time of year for many people. So what can be done to help cope?

One suggestion – set boundaries. For example, if you must go to a family event where there are relatives you don’t get along with, consider leaving early or bringing someone with you who can change the subject if you get into a difficult conversation.

Another tip – take a break from social media. It’s very easy to compare yourself to other people online and assume everyone is having an amazing time. However, it’s important to remember what you’re seeing is only the highlight reel.

Finally, if you are struggling financially and can’t afford presents for your loved ones, there are still plenty of ways to show you care.
