Have you ever really asked yourself what you actually need during this busy holiday season? Not to be confused with what you want, but really think about what you need? Is it some alone time? Is it some self care? Is it a new tradition? Or perhaps an old tradition to keep your positive emotions flowing. Whatever you may need this holiday season, take a moment to really think about it. Write it down. Make it happen. Encourage others around you to do the same for themselves. If we all take a moment to figure out what we need to make this holiday season warm and wonderful for ourselves, then we can in turn make the holiday a memorable one for others. Linda Esposito at Psychology Today has some great questions to ask yourself, and tips for setting goals for yourself during this stressful time.
