Great Tools to Destress this Christmas


“ Never again!”
Two words I think of often this time of year.
Never again!  Forget the mall. I am shopping online next year!
Never again!  Did we need all these cookies?
Never again!  Next year we are staying home and relaxing!
Never again!  Why did I wait so long to clean the house?
If you have found yourself saying “never again” this Christmas season, stop right now, pour yourself a cup of cocoa or tea, find a quiet place and watch this webinar, Potholes on the Way to Bethlehem: Navigating the Stress of the Nativity Season, by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese Center for Family Life.
Addressing the physical, mental and spiritual demands of experiencing Christmas, Fr. Alex Goussetis, Pastor of Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Lancaster, PA, and George Stavros, PhD, MDiv, Executive Director of the Danielson Institute and Clinical Associate Professor of Pastoral Psychology at Boston University, along with Melissa Tsongranis, Associate Director of the Center for Family Care offer tangible advice and wisdom to encourage the most frantic elf.
Following their advice and example, you are sure to be refreshed and experience peace this Christmas.
