The holidays can be a time to look forward to and it can be a time to dread. For this in the latter category, can you find a way to carve out time for yourself?
Think of it as sifting through the unnecessary stuff to find the jewels of the holidays or create your own holiday.
Maybe it’s the holiday lights or cuddling up with a good book and hot cup of cocoa.
Maybe it’s the time of year when you decide to volunteer.
Maybe it’s about scheduling self-care sessions that involve things like meditating, having coffee with a friend or seeking therapy.
The holidays can be stressful. But it can also be fun, joyful and even relaxing.
Like everything else, it is what you make of it.
