Holiday Joys, Holiday Stresses

As the holidays approach focus on ways to make this time a joyful one despite the inevitable stresses and worries. Be realistic, don't expect everything to go as planned, and take time to enjoy the sights and sounds of the season.
Remember that it is more important to open your heart, than open your pocketbook.

Best Wishes to All from Psychological Health Roanoke
