For many of us social media has become a huge part of our day to day life. While there can be many benefits to the use of social media sites they can also interfere and become a great source of anxiety.
It’s supposed to be the “most wonderful time of the year”—but is it really? I guess the answer to this question depends on who you ask.

If the holidays don’t bring out your best side it’s okay, self-awareness is power and power promotes change. Here are some tips to beat holiday anxiety:
Anxiety is often fueled by the intolerance of uncertainty. Not knowing the outcome of a situation is often terrifying, particularly for those who worry excessively. Is this you? Do you over-prepare for things, repeatedly go over the “what if’s” of a situation, constantly seek reassurance from others, prefer not to delegate tasks, constantly check things or even avoid them all together?

So for all the non-psychics out there, here are some tips on how to overcome the intolerance of uncertainty.
