Make time for yourself

It may seem impossible at times, but making time for yourself is necessary to stay sane. You need to take care of yourself first, before you can help others. Spend some time alone each day doing something you enjoy. If you’re feeling stressed out, try taking a walk outside or listening to music. Whatever you do, make sure you give yourself some space away from everyone else.

Be present

When you’re around people, try to focus on what they’re saying instead of thinking about how much work you have left to do. Try not to let your mind wander off to places where you’ll never get back to. Instead, focus on the conversation happening right now.

Keep things simple

Don’t overthink everything. Don’t worry if you don’t understand everything someone says. Just listen and nod along. Remember, you don’t have to know everything to be a good listener.

Take breaks

If you’re having trouble staying focused, take a break. Go outside for a few minutes, go for a run, or even just sit down and relax. Your brain won’t function well without rest.

Eat healthy food

Eating healthy foods will keep you energized throughout the holidays. Avoid sugary treats and processed foods. Focus on eating whole foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds.

Get enough sleep

Sleep deprivation makes it hard to think clearly and function properly. Make sure you get plenty of sleep each night.

Have fun

Make sure you have fun while you’re spending time with family and friends. Enjoying yourself will help you feel less stressed and happier overall.

Give thanks

Giving thanks helps you appreciate the small things in life. Think about all the wonderful things you have in your life and express gratitude to those who helped you achieve them.

Find meaning

Find ways to connect with others and share your experiences. Helping others will bring happiness and fulfillment to your life.
