Holiday Stress

Extra activities plus trying to live up to expectations can create a stressful season.

Add to that seasonal affective disorder that impacts some people this time of year.

Consumer and Economics Specialist with the Missouri Extension Service Janet Lafond says cutting back on expenses can ease stress, as can special activities, like visiting with neighbors and friends from your old stomping grounds.

Lafond adds exercising and getting plenty of sleep can aid in keeping the winter holidays happier.
