“What are you doing for the holidays?” makes some people feel like downright Grinchy while others are giddy with joy, and that is in a normal year. The holiday season this year will be very different for all, and painfully tough for many. Unimaginable losses, fear, uncertainty, and loneliness are creating levels of anxiety and depression, in even for the strongest among us. For others, the pain and effects will be much deeper and longer lasting. None of us have gone through this before – ever! How can we set ourselves to not only survive but thrive through this holiday season? John Tsilimparis, MFT is back this week with great advice and tools we can use today to preempt the shock of how different, and weird, the holidays will be and helps us refocus on the true spirit of the season.
