Tips For Staying Calm And Happy During The Holidays

Now you know our top recommendations for cannabinoid “holiday helpers,” but what else can you do to stay calm and happy during the holidays?

Not freaking out, fighting with family, or eating every dessert at every get together can be a wonderful goal, but it often requires intentional effort due to the potential stressors associated with the season. Here are some tips to help you navigate the holiday season with a positive mindset:

  1. Set Realistic Expectations:
    • Don’t set the bar too high for yourself or others. Understand that perfection is not necessary, and it’s okay if things don’t go exactly as planned.
  2. Prioritize Self-Care:
    • Take care of your physical and mental well-being. Ensure you get enough sleep, eat well, and make time for activities that bring you joy and relaxation.
  3. Manage Your Time:
    • Plan ahead and avoid last-minute rushes. Prioritize tasks and activities, and be realistic about what you can accomplish. Learn to say no if you’re feeling overwhelmed.
  4. Stay Active:
    • Physical activity can be a great stress reliever. Take a walk, go for a run, or engage in any form of exercise that you enjoy.
  5. Connect with Loved Ones:
    • Spend quality time with family and friends. Cherish the moments and create positive memories. However, it’s also okay to set boundaries if needed.
  6. Practice Gratitude:
    • Focus on the positive aspects of your life. Consider keeping a gratitude journal to remind yourself of the good things, both big and small.
  7. Mindfulness and Relaxation Techniques:
    • Incorporate mindfulness or relaxation exercises into your routine, such as deep breathing, meditation, or yoga. These practices can help calm your mind and reduce stress.
  8. Limit Technology Use:
    • Take breaks from social media and electronic devices. Constant connectivity can contribute to stress. Set boundaries for yourself and enjoy the present moment.
  9. Financial Awareness:
    • Be mindful of your budget and avoid overspending. Consider alternatives to expensive gifts, such as homemade presents or experiences.
  10. Volunteer or Give Back:
    • Helping others can bring a sense of fulfillment and joy. Consider volunteering your time or making a charitable donation during the holiday season.
  11. Create Traditions:
    • Establishing meaningful traditions can add a sense of continuity and joy to the holidays. It could be as simple as watching a favorite movie, baking together, or taking a family walk.
  12. Laugh and Have Fun:
    • Don’t forget to inject humor and fun into your holiday celebrations. Laughter can be a powerful stress reliever.

Remember that everyone’s experience of the holidays is different, so find what works best for you and adapt these tips to your unique situation. If you find yourself struggling, don’t hesitate to seek support from friends, family, or a mental health professional.
