Dealing with family stress over the holidays can be overwhelming. Moms take on a superhero sized list of tasks that they feel need to be done. There are events to attend, presents to buy and family members to please. The “Holiday Blues” are a real thing.
Signs of Family Stress
- Isolation – staying at home, not answering the phone or not posting on social media
- Change in Personality – irritable, crying
- Impulse control issues
- Feelings and thoughts of self harm
Most of all, let your friends and family know that getting help is okay.
