It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Holiday bells are ringing. There’s magic in the air. Glad tidings and happy faces are everywhere. But maybe you’re not feeling it. Maybe for you, the holiday season is one of stress, anxiety, or sadness.
The reality is that a lot of people struggle with their mental health during the holiday season, and it’s not difficult to understand why. The holidays are filled with a lot of pressure–pressure to engage, to celebrate, to be really, really, extraordinarily happy. Or at least to pretend that you are.
Then there are also the physiological impacts of the holiday season. Too much food. Too much drinking. Too much socializing. And far too little sleep and sunlight. Your body and your mind pay the price for all the excesses of the holiday season, even as your brain struggles to adapt to the short days and long nights. It’s estimated, in fact, that up to 20% of adults have some form of winter depression (aka Seasonal Affective Disorder).
Hope For the Holidays
No matter how common the holiday blues may be, though, there’s good news. It is possible to get through the season with your mental health intact. You can even find your joy and truly experience the magic of the moment with just a bit of self-care.
By eating right, staying hydrated, getting consistent, quality sleep, and, above all, taking time out to relax and decompress when you need to, you can truly get your holiday mojo back.

Cortisol Saliva Test
This vital hormone, when within appropriate levels, can help decrease stress and improve sleep.
A cortisol saliva test measures the level of cortisol in your body. Cortisol is made by the adrenal glands. This essential hormone helps the body manage stress, maintain appropriate blood sugar levels, and reduce inflammation.
