A recent survey conducted on behalf of the American Psychological Association found that nearly 80% of adults say that the coronavirus pandemic is a significant source of stress in their lives. In addition, 60% say that they are overwhelmed by the number of issues America faces, including health care, the economy, racism and political tensions. Now, the holidays are looming, a time of year that often brings heightened family and relationship stress. How can we better cope in these unsettling times?

On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Craig Sawchuk, the division chair of Integrated Behavioral Health at Mayo Clinic, discusses how to handle relationships and stress during the holidays and beyond
