Christmas is an incredibly stressful time, you already know this. In order to maintain and strengthen your mental and emotional health, it’s important to pay attention to your own needs and feelings. This is hard when everything around you is about other people and their needs, friends, family, in laws.. Don’t let stress and negative emotions build up. Try to maintain a balance between your daily responsibilities and the things you enjoy. If you take care of yourself, you’ll be better prepared to deal with challenges if and when they arise. This is good advice all year ’round of course, but now in particular.
Challenges will arise by the dozen in the next couple of weeks!
