The holiday season is upon us! This time of year offers so much … as does every moment really. For many people, this can be a festive time spent with family and friends. For some, however, this can be a time of heightened loneliness. And for most of us, what is intended as a time of joy and celebration can quickly become one of overwhelm and stress. We may go between thoughts of too much (to do, to cook, too many people in this house!) or too little (money, time, patience, no one in the house). We may find ourselves riding one wave of emotion after another. Excitement gives way to exhaustion, joy gives way to sadness.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
- Fill parking meters. It’s a simple act. Kids love thinking they are helping someone, and it never costs much.
- Saying please and thank you are a great start.
- Listen and assume heartfelt understanding.
