The “Holidays”: Time to be happy and merry. For many people, this time of the year may feel stressful and overwhelming. Holidays can bring up and magnify unwanted memories and emotions. You want to make THIS holiday season great though – great for your kids, great for your family, better for yourself.  Below are two coping tips that may help you or someone you know enjoy the holidays a bit more this year.

  • Let go of expectations: Nothing will be perfect, and nothing will work out just the way you want it to. You can’t change or control anyone or anything but YOU. If you set your expectations too high, there’s a good chance you’ll feel guilty and/or frustrated when things go differently. Give yourself a break. Take things one step at a time and one moment at a time (this can be minute by minute, or day by day – whatever works best for you). 

  • Live in the moment: Practice mindfulness. When you start to feel all that stuff you don’t want to feel or worry about all those things you don't want to think about, try to focus your awareness on what is happening in the current moment (take a deep breath, close your eyes). Accept the moment for what it is (find a way to ground yourself in the moment and acknowledge that moment). Stop missing out on potential enjoyable activities by getting distracted by your thoughts. 

And on that note… I wish you all happy holidays! :)

The holiday season is fast approaching and though many are excited for it to come, some people have apprehensions due to past experiences that were not that good. The holidays should be the most look forward days in the calendar for it is during this time of the year were families are complete, take time to catch up with each other and have quality time. It is a season for family reunions, school homecoming, get together with former high school or college classmates and friends and a time were students get the most awaited break from their studies.

Holidays are supposed to be fun, especially for the children. But it is quite different for the adults. Holidays for the adults are more about preparation for food, parties, travel and gifts. They see to it that the children have a great time during the holidays. So no time to relax for the adults. They are doing this for the children to treasure when they become old and hope that their children will try to create new happy memories for their children too.
