Side step the holiday blues by starting new traditions.
The holidays are a time for fun and family. But that can make them especially difficult for people who’ve lost loved ones or yearn for happier times in their lives.
One tip that may help is to start a new tradition. Keeping the same traditions can trigger old memories, increasing feelings of loss. Starting something new can help you launch new memories.
And make sure you find time for the things you love doing, putting your mental wellness first, even if that means avoiding interactions with certain people, or taking time out to do yoga or exercise.
