The holidays are traditionally a time of togetherness. A time when work worries wane, giving way to cheer in the company of friends and family. A time of joy. Of giving. Of peace.
But, for many, they’re also a time of stress. Whether it’s shopping or decorating, wrapping or returning, old memories or the hectic pace of making new ones, the holidays really do amp up anxiety. We often get so worked up about getting everything right that we get it all wrong.
Perhaps you’re ready for grandma to get packing. Maybe you’re tired of crashing on your cousin’s couch. Whatever the case, you probably need a night of nothing but relaxation. An evening of “you time.”
