Don't let stress in the next two weeks rob you of the joy of Christmas season

The Elberton Star & Examiner - 12/13/2017

The National Institute of Health reports that Christmas is the time of year that people experience a high incidence of depression.

First and foremost, if the depression is serious, seek help from a qualified mental health professional.

Beyond that, "Psychology Today" recommends:

? Setting a budget on money spent on gifts and a limit on social events.

? Don't accept any ?perfect' representations of Christmas ? be present and enjoy each moment as best as you can.

? Become involved in giving in a non-monetary way through charities and worthwhile causes that help less fortunate people.

? Be grateful for what you have instead of what you don't have.

? Avoid excessive rumination about your life.

? Do interesting and fun things during the Christmas season.

? Take part in church activities and focus on the true meaning of the Christmas season.

? Focus your thoughts on all the good things about Christmas ? loving kindness, generosity and gratitude!
