Holidays mean family, friends, caroling, gathering, feasting, parities, shopping and gifts. And sometimes the Holiday Season can mean stress, anxiety, and all the troubles they cause.


We could talk about the things that cause us to feel stressed, like having too much to do in too short of a time frame and worrying about getting it all “Just Right.” And we could talk about the emotional traumas that resurface when we think about being around family and others that we would avoid spending time with the rest of the year. And yes, we could talk about how people tend to fall into bad habits this time of year, giving in to cravings, indulging a little more in food and alcohol, and hoping the caffeine will keep them going long enough to get through...

Winter is here, with all the potentially messy driving conditions that can come with it. The idea of driving in snow and winter storms doesn’t have to stress you out or cause anxiety.

The most common cause of COPD is smoking, and the more a person smokes, the more likely they are to develop COPD, though some people smoke for many years and never get COPD, and very rarely people who have never smoked can develop this disease.
