As we slide into the last month of 2020, how are you feeling?

How does it feel to be in the thick of the holiday season amidst this ongoing global pandemic?

If you feel fine and good, that’s wonderful.

But, for many of us, we may still feel tired, stressed, and overwhelmed.

We’ve been in some version of quarantine for nearly nine months now, COVID cases continue to skyrocket in this cold and flu season, we’re spending the holidays in ways that might look quite different than years past, and daylight hours shortening and the cold quickening.

With all of this at play, it’s normal and natural to feel stressed. To feel overwhelmed. To feel tired, anxious, or sad. However you feel these days, please, let that be okay.

And if you feel challenged in any way, the resources listed below – chock full of tools, tips, and advice to navigate a panoply of holiday-induced stressors – are designed to meet you where you’re at, and provide just a little more support.
