Coping with Thanksgiving

Feeling overwhelmed this Thanksgiving? Where do you go for Thanksgiving dinner? How do you not overeat? (And if you do, how can you not feel so guilty about it?) How can you deal with that relative you just hate?

Thanksgiving is a time of the year for many familys to reconnect, but it's also a stressful time for many. Our annual Coping with Thanksgiving Guide will help you 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.
