So, you're about to meet your future in-laws this Christmas and the tension is building.  Or, as you make purchase after purchase for holiday gift giving you're already worrying about year-end bills.   Whatever is causing your nerves to rattle it's helpful to spend some time TALKING ABOUT IT.

Share your anxiety.  When we hear ourselves talk about our fears, we begin to clarify and understand them.  Often you'll find that a listener, especially if they've experienced a similar problem, can dispel the sense of isolation that compounds the stress.   Keeping things inside often causes tension and concern.  It can be a real blessing to confide in someone who really listens and has your best interests at heart.  Before you jump into conversation about your worries you might want to take an hour or so and pray about it first, then if it still feels right to talk it out, go ahead.  If it doesn't feel right, write down your feelings in a letter.  You can always toss the letter or tuck it into your journal.
If anxiety strikes at 3AM, get out of be or better yet grab your Notes in the Night on the nightstand so you can stay there and simply jot down your problems so that in the morning you can deal with it. This will relieve the middle of the night insomnia and allow you to relax again knowing that you'll work it out when you get up.
This time of year can bring on additional tension and stress, but if you take time to make time for stress relieving strategy you'll be able to survive the holidays with good cheer!
