The holiday season is at our doors. And even though it's all about giving, and being with the ones that we love, this time of the year can also bring a lot of anxieties.
But, the good news is that holidays do not have to be so challenging. So we present five tips to help you get through the holidays compassionately and mindfully.
1. Focus on what is important.
When you focus on what is essential, it will also help you to put things into perspective, and manage your stress levels better.
The period of holidays is really about coming together and giving thanks for the year we are leaving behind. Celebrate your wins and failures. Also, it is time to think about other people and support those who are in need.
Think about what is important to you. Honor that message. Or make it your mantra during this time of the season.
Stressing about the gifts that you will buy, as well as be trying to please other people is not a way to spend your holidays. Get rid of whatever is weighing you down. Choose to celebrate in a way that will make you enjoy and have fun.
2. Learn how to let things go.
If you know that particular members of your family are a trigger for you — prepare yourself.
When it comes to family, there is not a lot much we can do to change their habits. Especially if we only ever see them once a year around the period of holidays.
In such cases, the best thing which you can do is to allow their comments to roll off. Create your protection. Use affirmations to help keep you be calm and safe as well.
For a lot of people, holidays can be stressful. Try to be compassionate and more forgiving with other people as well, during this period of the year.
3. Make your gifts thoughtful, not expensive.
Money is usually one of the most significant stresses over the period of holidays. This is because of the high expectation to purchase gifts for all family members and friends.
Remember that it is all about the intention and not the actual gift itself.
You do not need to spend a lot of money or buy the latest gadget, to impress someone. Instead, you just have to give the gift which comes from your heart.
