Guest:   Kevin Petersen Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist This is a difficult time of the year for many people.  Five things that can help people are exercise, nutrition, community, therapy and possibly medication.  Exercise even for just a short time is great for people’s mental health.  Nutrition, what we put into our body can change our mood.  Studies have shown people who eat more sugar are more lonely and salt are more anxious.  Community gives people the sense of what they are going through that they are not alone.  Therapy is a great resource for people to just listen to them.  It is a small as just the connection, it is helping them feel seen and heard.  Some people just have biological and chemical imbalances.  Sometimes medication can help to regulate that.  Medication is just there to give you a little help and not use for the rest of your life
