There's an under-appreciated task you may have left off your holiday to-do list, but it's one you absolutely shouldn't neglect: self-care.

The holiday season isn't all fun, games and food - it also brings unwanted stress that can take a massive toll on our mental and physical health. Some of this stress comes from the holiday work/life balancing act, but there are also overlooked factors for many of us: grief for those no longer by our side.

We sat down with Dr. Kate Rodriguez to talk about some of the biggest holiday stress points and how to address them with some emotional reflection and self-care. It's a segment we don't think anyone should miss, so please check it out in our video above.
