Although they are supposed to be a time of relaxation and togetherness, the holidays often become the opposite – hectic and stressful. If you need help managing an extra dose of stress this season, the State has several publications that you may find beneficial. First, the CSU Extension has published a fact sheet, Happier Holidays, for dealing with stress during this time of year. On a more general level, the Dept. of Human Services has a Stress Management brochure. Their website also offers a tip sheet on 26 Ways to Manage Stress, from the Jefferson Center for Mental Health. Finally, check out this fact sheet from the Colorado State Employees Assistance Program.
