Preparing for holiday headaches

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM, AL -

The holiday season is supposed to be the "most wonderful time of the year" -- but sometimes, all the jolly gets lost because expectations are not met.

Gerri Aston, a clinical social worker with Grayson and Associates, stopped by the midday show to share some tips on emotional preparation for the holiday season.

Managing expectations is a key to keeping the peace during the holiday season.

Aston suggests you make sure your expectations are realistic, and then assess if your emotional stress is coming from your expectations conflicting with those of other family members.

She urged viewers to remember -- you can't do it all, and you can't please everyone.
