                                                                                Plan to Make This Holiday Rich, Memorable and Stress-free.


When gearing up for the new year, consider stating some new holiday traditions or some exciting activities to celebrate this special season:

  • Consider taking a family vacation to visit relatives. Share each other's holiday traditions and experience new activities and climates.  Engaging in a fresh alternative to your holiday season can be fun and rewarding for the entire family.

  • Call a charitable organization and see how you and your family can get involved. As a family, go through your closets and the rest of your house to see what you no longer need. Check with local charities to find the most appropriate one for the various items you would like to donate. Many dry cleaners will clean coats, free of charge, to give to those in need.

  • This is an important time of the year. Our hectic lives often keep us too busy to focus on those things that are the most valuable. Make the commitment to enjoy all this season has to offer and approach it with a positive attitude. It is important to remember what we value the most, and it's the perfect time to create memories that will last a lifetime.


A study by Wirthlin Worldwide reveled that approximately 52 percent of women and 40 percent of men ages 35-54 said their stress levels go up during the holidays. The American Psychological Association reports that Americans list lack of money (61%), the pressures of gift giving (42%), lack of time (34%) and credit card debt (23%) as the top causes of holiday stress.
