Self-Care During the Holidays

Support our Nonprofit Magazine!

Before you start reading... There has never been a time when our community and content was needed more. Unlike other sites, we don't publish sponsored content or share affiliate links. We also don’t run ads on our site and don’t have any paywalls in front of our content–-anyone can access all of it for free.

This means we rely on donations from our community (people like YOU!) to keep our site running. We want to be here to support you all through this pandemic and beyond, which is why we are asking you to consider donating whatever you are able.

A single (or monthly) donation of just $5 will make a HUGE difference and will help keep our nonprofit running so we can continue offering peer support for mental health through our content.



There can be a misconception during the holidays of what our social lives are supposed to look like.  Parties to throw, gatherings to attend, gifts to purchase and wrap–the trouble with the long holiday season is the sense of burnout. Burnout can lead to overwhelming anxiety and gloomy depression.

Taking time for ourselves this holiday season can help us recharge our batteries for a less stressful and more enjoyable holiday season.

In this video, I’ll discuss the steps you can take and suggestions you may want to try–from expressing ways others can serve you to unplugging from social media and reflecting.
