The holidays are upon us and for some that brings great joy and excitement. For others, it brings great stress. I found an article on the Cognitive Psychiatry website that you might find helpful, http://cognitive-psychiatry.com/holiday-survival-tips. Here are a few of the tips suggested in the article:
1. Stick to your regular routine as much as possible. Sticking to your regular sleeping, eating, and exercising routine will help you feel better. The same is true for your children!
2. There is no such thing as the perfect holiday or perfect family. Enjoy the moment and the time for what is. Be realistic in your expectations.
3. It's okay to say no and set boundaries. You don't have to yes to everything that you are asked to do or attend.
4. Take care of yourself. You cannot take care of anyone else until you have taken care of yourself first. It's okay to rest, go for a walk, and take time for yourself.
Today and every day I wish the very best for you and your family. I hope you are able to take time to enjoy the holidays and spend some quality with your loved ones.
