The holiday season can be stressful for us all but when you are suffering with depression and/or anxiety it can be even harder. In this video I share some of my top self-care tips to get through the holiday season…and maybe even enjoy it!
1. Dedicate time each week to exploring and expressing your feelings;
check in with yourself.
2. Dedicate time each week to NOT focus on your depression and/or anxiety.
In other words, dedicate a portion of time purely to doing what you love or what makes you feel better–like going for a walk or watching a film.
3. Get in the holiday spirit!
No matter how many reasons you have for disliking the holidays, write down all the positive things instead–like time off work, pretty decorations.
4. Be kind to yourself.
Remember you are fighting an illness and it is okay to not feel as happy and excited as those around you. Don’t compare yourself to anyone else. Focus on what makes YOU feel better.
Happy Holidays everyone! xo
