The Holidays: The Most Stressful Time of the Year

The holidays should be a fun, exciting time that you look forward to every year. Unfortunately, for many, the holidays bring a lot of stress. You deal with holiday parties with friends and family you don’t really like, the stress of overspending your budget, and the fatigue caused by trying to squeeze in too many so called ‘fun’ activities.

Before you know it, your holiday changes from being a fun tradition that you were looking forward to, and becomes a trial that you can’t wait to get through. Many people find that instead of coming out on the other side having enjoyed the experience, that they feel stressed, have likely gained a few pounds, and have spent more money than they ever thought possible.

When you have ADHD, the holidays can be even more stressful. When you already struggle with attention and organization, it’s hard to keep track of even more obligations.

That being said, ADHD doesn’t have to be a death sentence. Just because you struggle with the disorder, doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to enjoy a wonderful holiday with your family. In order to do this, you’ll have to come up with specific coping strategies to help yourself get through the holidays, and have a good time in the process.
