When we hear others talk about the holiday season, there is one common statement among everyone, and that is being busy! Busy with holiday parties, buying gifts, putting up Christmas decorations, and working more hours to afford the holiday buzz. So how do you slow yourself down so you can be mentally in the moment with family and friends?
The holiday season may be joyous occasion for some people, but what is not always talked about is how the holiday season can also be a reminder of previous traumas (emotional, physical, sexual), how it may bring a lot of tension due to family disconnect, or be a reminder of someone or something that you have loss. Sometimes feeling forced to participate in family events is challenging and can bring up a lot of guilt and pain.
If you celebrate Thanksgiving, it’s a time to get together with family and friends and a time to share some laughs and create new memories. Thanksgiving is also a time to be thankful and grateful. But what does that mean? What does that look like? And why is it a good thing?
Nowadays it’s hard to give ourselves the excuse of “I didn’t know.”
