Solitary time can reduce stress from the holidays

Door County YMCA's offer some stress relief after the holidays. The "Y" has many yoga and tai chi classes available to help get you active and relaxed. Mary Claire McHugh is the Senior Program Director at the YMCA in Sturgeon Bay and she says for many the people, the holidays are a very stressful time and it's good to take some time for yourself. McHugh is happy to see that stress reduction is becoming a priority for people. 



McHugh has seen an increase in people coming in since Christmas. She added that using screens to try to relax is not as effective as other ways, as there can be as many stressors on your screen as there are in your real life.
