The holiday season is a time filled with emotion. Celebrating with children can help us re-connect with the excitement, and magic of this festive season. Visiting with friends and family can help us experience joy and happiness. These positive experience can bring us to a heightened emotional state that is susceptible to crash. Over indulging, over spending, and holiday over load in general can be exhausting. Consider finding some balance through recreation. Simple recreation activities throughout the holidays can help us maintain a state of equilibrium. Try going for a family walk together after Christmas dinner. Take time to breathe and appreciate the here and now. Consider approaching your cooking, baking, wrapping, decorating, visiting, etc. from a place of compassion rather than out of obligation. Remember that we will all experience highs and lows over the holidays. Do your best to be present and appreciate the highs and welcome the lows with curiosity and acceptance. A warm and Happy Holiday Season to everyone!
