As the vintage song goes, “there is no place like home for the holidays.” I love being home with my family for the holidays. Christmas morning arrives and all of the hard work has paid off. The smiles on my family’s faces is worth it. The late nights of wrapping gifts and adorning the house with decorations are all worth it.
I know that for some of you being home for the holidays can be very stressful. Here are some tips for healthier ways to cope with family drama.
Go for a walk or a run. It will give you an excuse to take a break from the hustle and bustle and work off stress.
Try talking about topics such as someone’s favorite recipe or favorite place they have ever traveled. You can even discuss someone’s favorite Beatles song.
Feel free to take a time out to have a moment of quiet. Volunteer to run an errand to give yourself some space.
Make sure you enjoy a big salad with organic leafy greens. Your gut health impacts your emotional health.
Be grateful that everyone is under one roof. We all know things can change in an instant. Cherish your time with loved ones.
The holidays can be filled with beauty. We hope you enjoy the beauty and the blessings of this time of the year.
