WHEN THE HOLIDAYS ARE HARD
Tips for Surviving the Holidays when You're Sad
Here are some great tips for surviving the holiday blues from Linda Walter from Psychology Today (https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/life-without-anxiety/201212/10-tips-surviving-the-holidays)!
- Stick to your routine: A change in routine can lead to additional stress. Try to exercise at your usual time, go to meetings that you normally go to, and stick to as normal a diet as you possibly can.
- Be realistic, and try not to expect the “ideal” holiday: We can feel disappointed when the holidays don't live up to our expectations. Try to be realistic. Remember, nobody has a perfect holiday or perfect family.
Stay Connected: Make sure to leave time to spend with friends and/or family who value you. And if they don’t live close by, call them for a “reality check” or some “grounding.” Remember to ask for support if you need it.
- Don't be alone if you don't want to be. If you anticipate spending the holidays alone, try to volunteer somewhere, like in a soup kitchen, with children in group homes, or the elderly in various facilities. People will so appreciate you that you may feel better about yourself, but more importantly, you’ll have company.
- Focus on Today, not Yesterday: There’s something about being with family and old friends that makes us become who we were and not who we are. When you find yourself reverting to old childhood patterns with family members, try to walk away for a minute and remember who you are now.
- Just say no: It’s OK to say no when you’re asked to do more than you can. It’s fine to say no to some invitations and fine to say no to those asking for favors. Remember, this is your holiday, too!
- Ask for Help: Holidays are often a time people attempt to take on too much or do too much on their own. It’s OK to ask for help from family and friends. Whether for decorating, shopping, cooking, or a shoulder to lean on, ask.
- Be good to yourself: If you’re feeling blue, pamper yourself. Do what feels good, and what you want to do. Try to take a walk or spend time alone, if that’s what you want. Remember, this is your holiday, too, and you can be there for yourself just like you try to be for everyone else.
