Coping with Thanksgiving

If it's the end of November, that must mean that Thanksgiving is around the corner. This is the time of the year that many people begin to feel overwhelmed... So what are you going to do about it? How do you avoid overeating? (And if you do indulge, how can you feel less guilty about it?) How can you deal with that relative whose company you just don't enjoy?

Thanksgiving is a time of the year for many families to reconnect, but it's also a stressful time for many people. Our annual Coping with Thanksgiving Guide will help you deal with some of the most common Thanksgiving-related issues. So while we can't improve your family, perhaps we can improve your mood and help you get through the holiday with your sanity intact! Have a Happy Thanksgiving -- or at least one that has just a little less stress this year.
