Staying positive during the holidays

Many of us may boast of the holiday season and express excitement as it approaches, but we always forget until November begins how stressful and overwhelming the holidays can be. What with the airport, the mall and the grocery store, it seems as if nowhere is safe away from the crowds.

Here are some simple ways you can stay positive and make the most of your holiday season:

— Make some time for yourself on a regular basis. According to the American Heart Association, doing things you enjoy is a natural way to fight off stress. Think of activities that make you happy, such as a yoga session or watching your favorite show, and make time for them when you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed.

— Cherish the time you have with your family. If there are reoccurring fights, such as who will make what dish, make sure it’s planned before the gathering. If some subjects are sensitive, try to resolve issues beforehand or mentally make a plan for how to handle that situation so it doesn’t ruin the day.

— Finally, don’t take things so seriously. At the end of the day, it’s just another day. No one is perfect, so learn to laugh when things don’t go your way.
