RENEWAL is designed to offer hope and comfort to people suffering from mental health disorders or addiction disorders, and support to the people who love them. Our approach is based on respect for the dignity of the people we serve and the belief that through a faith-based program, life-changing results are possible.

RENEWAL: Christian Treatment and Recovery is an optional treatment supplement available through Brookhaven Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

God who created us and loves us (Genesis 1:26)
Jesus Christ who redeems us (Isaiah 53:5)
The Holy Spirit who guides us (Acts 1:8)

How to Manage Post-Thanksgiving Stress and Prepare For the Christmas Holiday



After eating a lot of rich foods as well as having a lot of good times with family during Thanksgiving, many people succumb to post-holiday stress due to many reasons. Some people suffer from post-holiday stress due to physical exhaustion as well as dire financial problems after going beyond their budget during the Thanksgiving celebration. With Christmas less than a month away, it is no wonder why many people experience tremendous post-Thanksgiving stress. As life goes back to normal after Thanksgiving, there are ways for you to manage your stress level, so that you can start preparing for the Christmas holiday.

Give Yourself A Break

After the lack of sleep because of entertaining family members as well as putting the house in order, it is time that you give yourself a break. It will not hurt you to allow two or three day so that you can gather your strength to prepare for the next holiday – Christmas.  You do not need to go on a vacation to give yourself a break. You can just stay at home and read your favorite book or take a walk in a park nearby. During this time, it is important that you also consume healthy foods to unclog your body from eating a high-calorie diet during the Thanksgiving holiday.

Learn From Your Thanksgiving Experiences

You might have experienced a few mistakes during the Thanksgiving holiday, so it is important that you learn from your Thanksgiving experiences and avoid the same problems during Christmas. Although both holidays are different, you likely do similar preparations for both, so it is important that you take a look at your mistakes.  This way, you will be able to do things differently, and Christmas will go that more smoothly.

Decide To Celebrate Christmas Simply

To avoid post-Thanksgiving stress as well as the stress caused by the approaching Christmas holiday, you can opt to simplify your Christmas celebration. Most people feel stressed out after Thanksgiving, because they feel pressure to spend a lot of money on Christmas decorations as well as the gifts and Christmas dinner. It might help minimize a lot of stress if you decide to celebrate Christmas with simplicity this year. After all, what truly matters is not how much you will be spending for this holiday, but how you celebrated it.

Stay Calm

During the holiday rush, it is important that you stay calm. Yes, you might have forgotten to buy ingredients for your Christmas dinner or you might not have enough money to buy the game console that your kids wanted for Christmas, but these are just trivial things. Remember that both Thanksgiving and Christmas are holidays wherein you should enjoy and appreciate what you have and spend it with your friends and family. Managing post-Thanksgiving stress is very crucial, so that you will be able to have more energy to plan the Christmas holidays effectively and without feeling any stress at all.
