T’s the season of merry, Happy Holidays to you! Making merry can look different to each of us and it is quite alright. Remember your happiness is what matters so a few ideas on how to protect your energy and stay safe this holiday:

  1. Create boundaries which may look like not having a conversation that you don’t want to, receiving calls when you have the energy to, not going home to the family because you don’t want to etc

2. Don’t go out partying without a friend or two for safety reasons.

3. Be vulnerable and listen to yourself, your body, mind, and soul. Tell the people you love, you love them. Express yourself. Connect with your support system. Seek therapy, mental health is important.

4. Go outside and breathe some fresh air. Enjoy the little things.

5. Find your pivot point, your center, and ground yourself.
