A Holiday Thought
At this time of year when we are meant to be enjoying seasonal festivities, it is important to keep a few ideas in mind to keep your mind healthy and well in this season of joy and chaos. All too often people over do things at the holidays, there seems to be a real need to do more than really necessary. It is far more important that the people that you love get to spend time with you rather than having the perfect tree or perfect meal.
Also, people often feel the “need” to be with certain people over the holidays. This rather than spending time with the people they “want” to spend the time with. Holidays will often bring out our feelings of obligations. Obligations are great and are necessary, but at this time of year it is essential that this is balanced by our desires.
It is important to remember that this is often flashpoint for people’s relationships. When one would think that having extra time with one’s spouse and family, this time together can often reveal cracks that our normally busy lives manage to paper over nicely. It is important that emotions remain balanced at this time of year so that one can truly enjoy the festivities without any unneeded drama.
