“Since 2010, customers and small businesses alike have been able to kick start their holiday shopping season on a day celebrating the uniqueness, charm and economic impact that small businesses bring to communities nationwide. Recognized as Small Business Saturday.”
This year, Small Business Saturday falls on November 29th.
Family time. Holiday trimmings. Travel. Gift-shopping, giving and receiving.
Everyone is happy, right?
Why are some of us especially depressed and anxious on such a supposedly joyous season? Nevertheless, there it is. Beginning November 27 this year and ending New Year’s Eve it hits.
Dr. Melissa Conrad Stoopler Indicates
A number of factors, including unrealistic expectations, financial pressures and too many commitments can cause stress at holiday time.
Certain people may feel depressed around the winter holidays due to seasonal affective disorder (SAD), sometimes referred to as seasonal depression. Headaches, excessive drinking, overeating and insomnia are some of the possible consequences of poorly managed holiday stress. Those suffering from any type of holiday depression or stress can benefit from increased social support during this time of year. Counseling or support groups can also be beneficial.
