As surely as Christmas happens on December 25 every year, stress levels seem to skyrocket during the holiday season between just before Thanksgiving to just after New Year’s. There is pressure coming from all sides: to be happy, to attend parties and family dinners, to feel connected to the “reason for the season” while also running around like a crazy person, shopping, eating and socializing. This is exhausting for most people, and doubly so for the introvert who needs lots of time and space in the midst of the joyful chaos.
