Tips for Getting through the Holidays with a Little Sanity

TipsForGettingrhoughHolidays

How do you “Do” the Holidays?

Do you thrive on all the activities of the holidays? Do all those lists, shopping, plans, cooking and so on and on leave, you feeling energized or exhausted? If you answered yes, you can quit reading now.

However, if like many of us, you find the Holidays a mixed-bag and often end up feeling exhausted, drained, frustrated or sad, then keep reading.

There is certainly not a one-size-fits-all answer to how do “do” the Holidays. But this is a good time to take a careful assessment of which activities you enjoy, and which you do only because you “should”.

Just a few minutes setting priorities may make all the difference.

Take a few minutes not to set some priorities and things may go a little smoother allowing you to breeze through December with a smile on your face.

Happy Holidays from Virginia & AnnaMariah

What is your Holiday HSP Sensitivity Profile?

HSP-HolidaySensitivityProfile

 

 

What’s a Holiday Sensitivity Profile?  It’s your energy profile and prediction of how well you’ll get through the holiday!

The holidays are upon us again. For many of us, the holidays are a mixed bag. While many people look forward to them, others dread them or have mixed feelings for a variety of reasons.

I was reminded of this yesterday when talking to a very balanced, focused friend who was feeling “off” and kind of sad. When I mentioned that it’s almost Thanksgiving, she immediately knew that’s what was wrong.

If you’re a Highly Sensitive Person it’s quite likely that the holidays are more of a struggle for you, but even people who don’t normally have a problem find the holidays to be very stressful.

Shopping with Intention: Giving What Only You Can Give – Holiday Survival Series #2

Shopping with Intention

by Carol Burbank, Ph.D.
Guest Blogger

Don’t you just hate the pressure of finding the perfect gift?

I do! I start my holiday shopping early in the fall, because I’m picky about what I give my friends and family. And there are always people “impossible” to buy for! I’m torn between buying what I would want or finding something to fit them. (Hint: if we love it, they’ll probably feel the same way!) Whatever I buy, I worry they won’t be happy.

Are you a Co-Dependent gift giver?

You guessed it. I’m a co-dependent gift giver.  Enough is never enough! Over the years I’ve learned to soften the edges of my holiday shopping anxiety with this simple mantra: It really is the thought that counts!

Top Ten Life Hacks for HSPs and the Rest of Us – HSP Series #3

You don’t have to be an HSP (highly sensitive person) or Empath to find useful information in this post.

Do you have times where life just seems difficult or overwhelming?

We all have times in our lives where things feel difficult, chaotic or overwhelming. Life seems harder, you tend to be more affected by the people, circumstances, and energies around you. Even if you wouldn’t normally describe yourself as sensitive, you may find yourself feeling unusually triggered or unable to cope.

These tips may help during those times and during the Holidays

The Holidays are a time when you may be struggling to maintain your normal balance and calm. Some of these tips may come in handy now and at other times when you’re under additional stress. There is often too much to do, too many expectations,  and other emotional ups and downs that may come up at this time of year.

You may be feeling emotions more strongly, and have thoughts, feelings, and sensations that you just can’t explain. In the course of a day you may swing wildly from happy, to sad, to fearful and back up (hopefully) to feeling good?
