Managing The Holiday Stress
Also, before going to an event or having people over, it is important to take a few minutes to do some deep breathing and/or meditation. Imagine yourself having a great time, everyone being nice to you, you being able to not overeat, or the opposite of whatever it is that creates stress or anxiety in your life. Be grateful to the family members you enjoy being around, and thankful for their influences in your life. Think about how it would be to interact with your family in a positive way. Let yourself smile when you think of how much love you have for your family and even use your other senses. What would it smell like? Gingerbread cookies? What sounds are around – music or laughter?
