Few things make me as anxious as the holiday season. The emotional weight of ambitious new and forming family traditions is overwhelming. So is shopping, decorating, and attending an excessive amount of holiday events. Why do I do it? I love it. I’ve always said that part of acknowledging and managing generalized anxiety is about wanting to participate and be present for the things I love in life – and I love the holiday season.
