Coping with the Holidays

 

For many people, the holidays and Christmas can be not only a very happy and joyous time reuniting with family and friends, but also a very stressful time. Old patterns of behavior emerge, our stress levels go up, and our ability to cope flies out the window.

No sooner have we put away the Thanksgiving turkey that we turn and find the presents we need to wrap for Christmas. The holidays start a few weeks of stress and constant motion for many, as well as feelings of being overwhelmed, depression and even loneliness for others.

We can’t stop the world from turning, but perhaps the articles below will help you better cope with the holidays.

Quoting from Dr. Alfred’s LinkedIN page “Through my employment and studies, I have developed experience and skills applying Organizational Psychology to many types of industries, with a specialization in health care. Experiences involve, but are not limited to: change management, quality improvement, safety culture, workforce planning, training and development, organizational, group and individual assessment, team building facilitation, statistics, and survey design.

I am currently working on a book project about workplace Loyalty with my father, Dr. Stan Frager. We interviewed 24 Generals from all four branches of the United States military about how to create a loyal workforce. We then apply these lessons learned to a wide variety of organizations and their leaders.”
