Tips for Managing Holiday Stress
Make a list of the things you need to do so you can prioritize the most important. You are also less likely to forget something if you have it written down.
There is a lot of focus on giving around the holiday season, but it’s also essential to give back to yourself. Self-care isn’t selfish- it’s a necessary part of mental health and wellbeing.
Create a budget
Make a financial plan and stick to it. It’s easy to overspend around the holiday season, and setting a budget can help keep you on track.
Honor lost loved ones
If you have recently lost someone close to you, use this time to reflect on special memories and create new traditions in their honor. Some great ways to do this are donating money or time to their favorite cause.
If holiday stress is affecting you to the point where it’s affecting your ability to function day to day, consider talking to a mental health professional.
