Stress Management for the Holidays

Thank you to those who attended last Saturday’s meeting, it was good to see our regulars and a few new faces.  Gift bags were given to attendees as a show of appreciation.  Thank you Donna and Mike for taking time to put them together.  Special recognition went  to Julia Stepp for going above and beyond CART, helping us whenever she can and to Susan Chilton for leading our interactive meetings getting us in touch with our support group efforts again.

Susan led the meeting on Stress Management for the Holidays.

Susan Chilton with CART

She had a lot of practical advice for the everyday person such as cutting back on traditions or delegating tasks to family.  Other suggestions were to get outside in the sun for a walk or get regular exercise. Treat  yourself to a massage or ask a family member to trade foot or hand massages.  As hard of hearing it’s important to place yourself at your best vantage point around a holiday table.  Sit by a sympathetic family member who will help you hear, try for a corner position at the table to help reduce acoustic problems.

Other news: Hearing aid batteries can be recycled with your local CostCo audiologist.

Look for coming socials between HLAA meetings.  Socials will be announced here and on our yahoo email list.

Our next meeting date and topic will be announced soon, stay tuned!
