Don’t enjoy Christmas? Here’s 10 tips to help you through the season

Must read

  1. Do not feel obligated to do anything if you do not want to. You can say no when you’re uncomfortable with an invitation or activity.
  2. Set boundaries and communicate your needs. Don’t be afraid to let your friends and family know if you need space or don’t want to participate in certain traditions.
  3. Plan ahead. If you know that there are certain events or situations that are likely to cause you stress, plan ahead and come up with strategies for dealing with them.
  4. Take care of yourself. This holiday season, make self-care a priority. A good night’s sleep, a healthy diet, and engaging in activities that you enjoy will help you achieve this.
  5. Focus on the things that bring you joy. Christmas does not need to be all about parties and gift-giving. Make sure you incorporate the things that bring you joy into your holiday season.
  6. Seek support. If you’re feeling overwhelmed or having trouble coping, don’t hesitate to ask for help. Seeking therapy or speaking with a trusted friend or family member may be a smart idea.
  7. Remember that feeling the way you do is okay. There’s nothing wrong with having mixed feelings about Christmas as long as you acknowledge and validate them.
  8. Create your own traditions. Don’t worry if you don’t enjoy traditional Christmas activities. Create your own traditions based on your preferences and interests.
  9. Give yourself permission to take a break. If the holiday season is particularly challenging for you, you may want to take a break from the usual festivities and do something more manageable.
  10. Try to focus on the bigger picture. The Christmas season can be challenging but remember, it’s just a day that will pass. Don’t worry about things that don’t really matter to you, and focus on what does.
  11. Try again.
