Cass County COA hosting holiday destressing event


The 'happiest time of the year' isn't happy for everyone.  The holiday season can leave many people, especially seniors, feeling depressed and isolated.  That's why the Cass County Council on Aging offered a special event teaching de-stressing techniques.

Director of Education Dona Billeyweiler says there a lots of ways to keep your stress levels down, including simple things like exercising and eating healthy. 

A lot of times, though, she says it comes down to time and intention.  She says if you don't schedule your time, someone else will.  That can lead to feeling like you missed opportunities to see those you cared about most. 

That can be especially depressing for seniors, but could be a lesson we all can learn a little more during the hustle and bustle of the holidays.
