Holiday Stress

The holidays can be a very stressful time of year which can be taxing on our mental health. To try and alleviate some stress, our friends at Northstar EAP would like to remind us of our “Holiday Bill of Rights”. For example, “You have the right to say TIME OUT, anytime you need to” or “You have the right to DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY”. Check out your Holiday Bill of Rights and their tips for “24 Random Acts of Holiday Kindness”, and remember to have a Happand Relaxing Holiday Season!!
