Can Black Friday & The Holiday Season Be Harmful To Your Mental Health? 

If you listen to the media, the holidays are a set-up for stress, depression and even suicide. But is it true? Could the “most wonderful time of the year” be damaging to your mental health?

A recent study found that the chaos of major sales events may cause anxiety, loss of reality and other mental health issues among shoppers. Retailers bank on these heightened emotions to make the sale. Unsurprisingly, many shoppers feel “spending guilt” after loading up on holiday gifts they can’t afford, which in turn can lead to financial and relationship problems.
