When your heart is aching with sadness it’s okay to be joyful during the holidays. Here are a couple tips for getting through the holidays when you are grieving or alone.
- Plan ahead. Take some time to help yourself. Think of how to help with your stress, anxiety or fatigue and schedule some time for a nap or time to relax. Figure out what is going to help get you through the holidays and make that a priority.
- Have support. Whether it be a friend or a support group, you need people. If you are feeling overwhelmed and there is someone you know that can lend an ear, give them a call. Learning how to ask for help is important.
Wishing you comfort and peace this holiday season.
