  • The Importance of Going to Therapy During the Holidays

    With the holiday season upon us, the added stress of planning can often cause us to put our own mental health on the back burner. However, this can be detrimental to any progress we’ve made throughout the year.

    Rather than putting your needs aside, why not focus on staying steadfast into the near year? In this article, we’re going to discuss the importance of going to therapy during the holidays.

    Stresses of the Holidays

    While many refer to the holidays as the “most wonderful time of the year,” with it comes heaps of stress. The holidays can be emotionally draining on individuals who may be suffering from a series of significant life events, including things like:

    • Difficult family dynamics
    • Divorce
    • Strained relationships
    • Heartache
    • Illness
    • Grief

    It’s essential to continue to put your mental health first, even during the time of giving. That’s why Sano Counseling wants to stress the importance of maintaining your therapy through this time.
