carl azuz explains in today's health minute. " " 'tis the season to be jolly. but why are these people fighting over crock pots and mp-3 players? (dr. marc dalton/psychiatrist) "most people freak out about three particular things during the holiday. specifically time, money and other people." when it comes to time, limit yourself to the festivities, both on the giving and receiving end. there's only so much eggnog you can drink. (dr. marc dalton/psychiatrist) "i would say pick two or three things that you really, really want to do and then reserve the other times for yourself." if the expense of the holidays is nipping at your wallet, set a budget and stick to it. remember, some of the best christmas memories don't come from a store. (dr. marc dalton/psychiatrist) "experiences are usually a lot better than things, especially during the holiday season." for some, creating the perfect holiday can bring on frustrations and unrealistic expectations. doctors suggest during this time of year, it's a good idea to just breathe. (dr. marc dalton/psychiatrist) "i always say take one weekend where you plan to do nothing, but do things that you need to do for yourself." so when santa claus visits this year, you'll be able to say ho, ho, ho, instead of a bah humbug. for today's health minute, i'm carl azuz. coming up in sports...nobody expected iowa to
