5 Ways to Keep the ‘Happy’ in Your Happy Holidays
For the last three mornings, I’ve woken up with the holiday song “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” going through my head. (Those store soundtracks have an insidious way of taking over your brain!)
My spontaneous rebuttal is “It’s the most STRESSFUL time of the year.”
While this can be a fun and fulfilling time, it can also be a time of great challenge. Depression is higher during the holiday season than during any other time of the year.
Is there a better way to live through the holidays so that you plug into the “fun and fulfilling” part and lessen the “stressful” part?
I’ve been exploring that myself this year, as I’ve been feeling some sadness these past few weeks. I’m missing my parents and some dear friends who’ve passed away over the past years, and I’m not in a primary relationship, which can make me feel a bit lonely during the holidays. Yet, I still want to keep my heart open and expanded during this time.
I’ve found a holiday prescription that’s working for me and can also work for you.
It’s based on dealing with the five main sources of stress that can lead to the holiday blues.
Those Five Main Sources of Stress Are:
1. Overconsumption: We tend to over-shop, overeat, overdrink, over-everything! Can you relate?
2. Loneliness: This is time when we can feel most isolated or alone, even if we’re surrounded by lots of people.
3. Time Pressure: In the mad rush of the season, we stop taking care of ourselves.
4. Financial Stress: No need to explain this!
5. Loss of Perspective: With such an emphasis on buying the right gifts, having the right clothes for parties and gatherings, and finding the right ingredients for our holiday meals, we often lose perspective on what really brings fulfillment.
Now, here are The Top Five Tips to Make It Through the Holidays, keeping your heart open and your joy flowing.
