The countdown to Christmas is on and with only a few shopping days left, the holidays can cause a serious mental stress out for last minute shoppers.
We spoke with Psychologist Dr. Gary Dunn at Pitt County Memorial Hospital, who says the holiday shopping frenzy can leave people both mentally and physically ill.
He suggests shoppers take it easy during these final shopping days by exercising before they hit the malls.
He also says a great stress reducer is good time management. Dr. Dunn says it's important for shoppers to take breaks in order to avoid becoming overwhelmed.
