Holiday Stress and Survival

The holidays are a joyous time for many. Still, the holidays are a time of stress and anxiety for many others, leading to a sense of sadness and feeling blue or worse. Feeling isolated, lonely, separated from loved ones or friends, or tired can make some frustrated and struggle to make decisions.

Here are the seven most often reported negative feelings associated with the holiday season:

  • Struggling to cope with being alone and isolated
  • Fatigue and unable to get restorative rest
  • Withdrawal from people
  • Having a sense of loss
  • Difficulty focusing and concentrating
  • No desire to participate in the seasonal activities
  • No enjoyment in everyday activities

These and other negative feelings can lead many people to dread the holidays and withdraw to the point of developing long-term mental distress.

What is the solution? Pills, pills, and more pills! Or here is a simple no-side-effect way to help you deal with these negative thoughts and emotions.

Take two or three comfortably deep breaths, close your eyes and relax for a few minutes. Think of a time in your past when you were happy and content—when you were lost in a happy moment. You were caught up in that happy time. Imagine that time giving it more detail, involving all your senses. Permit yourself to allow yourself the luxury of your memory. Then, when you feel better, hold onto that memory and live in the present moment.

If you have trouble releasing seasonal angst, call me and let me help you overcome all the negative energy you feel during the holiday season.
