Today we’re talking about avoiding the holiday blues.


As we all know, life is full of challenges, and this time of year can be particularly difficult for anyone that's dealing with a loss or tough emotional experience. Unfortunately, these hard times can seem even more grueling when everybody else appears to be so happy.

The holidays are all about fun and joy, but anyone that's not in the right frame of mind is left feeling even more alone and isolated. Let's be on the lookout for those around us that may need some extra comfort or support. It can make all the difference in the world.

This time of year is also infamous for overspending. There's so much to buy, so many people to buy for, and lots of temptation from all the holiday sales. So, how do we not get sucked into spending way over our budgets?
