5 Life-Changing Books to Become Your Best Self in 2023

Shifting your mindset is a powerful tool to help improve your life. The thing is, many of us can’t flip a switch and look at the world differently. We need outside, unbiased perspectives to help us see things more clearly and give us a kick-start to make lasting change.

Often, we think of the inner child in terms of trauma – because trauma responses keep emotions trapped in our body that keep us anchored into subconscious aspects of our identity formed by the unprocessed emotions.

Holiday Stress, Anxiety, and Depression

Not feeling the merriment? Holiday Stress, Anxiety, and Depression are real

While December is considered a time for joy and celebration, not everyone has been bitten by the holiday cheer bug—and that’s perfectly okay. For some people, the holidays may resurface difficult childhood memories, remind them of a lost loved one, or make them feel alone.

During the winter holidays, there’s so much to organize and prepare for, which can go hand-in-hand with stress and anxiety. We’re sure that navigating a hectic mall as you frantically search for gifts that will make everyone on your shopping list happy brings a new level of anxiety to most. 

The holidays are also a time of gathering, which can be unpleasant for introverts or people who need to prioritize relaxation. Having several holiday celebrations and social commitments each week can make someone feel as if they are being pulled in many different directions. 

Just because you aren’t feeling the merriment doesn’t mean you’re a modern-day Ebenezer Scrooge. Instead, it shows that you’re mindful of your mental and emotional health.

If you feel increased stress and anxiety around the holidays, check out these five tips:

  1. Learn How To Say “NO”
    Setting boundaries can help you in every aspect of your life. Failing to make time for yourself during the busy holiday season can make you feel overwhelmed and upset. It’s okay to turn down an invitation or two (or dozens) if you think staying at home would make you feel more relaxed and happy.

  2. Stay Active
    Depending on where you live, the winter season might also bring a lot of rain and snow. However, exercising releases important “feel good” hormones like serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin— these chemicals will help you cope with the holiday blues. Consider replacing outdoor trail runs with a sweaty hot yoga or at-home mat workout. 

  3. Don’t Forget About Sleep
    Because the holidays are usually filled with social events, it’s easy to put sleep on the backburner. However, being well-rested can improve your mood and keep your spirits high. For example, try to go to bed at the same time each night, aiming for around 8 hours of undisturbed rest. If your family members or roommates throw frequent holiday gatherings, invest in a good pair of earplugs, an eye mask, and a white noise machine. 

  4. Avoid Overindulging
    We understand that Santa-shaped chocolates, shortbread cookies, and pecan tarts are incredibly hard to turn down. Filling up on healthier foods and veggies before attending a social event will prevent you from overeating and feeling guilty the following day. Consuming too many sweets and rich foods at holiday events can negatively affect your mood. 

  5. Get Support From Others
    If the holidays are difficult for you, share these feelings with your friends and loved ones. Although isolating yourself seems like an easy option, spending time with people who make you laugh will be the most beneficial. Throw a dinner party or festive holiday event at your place, as this is a great way to connect with those who positively impact your life. 

If you feel alone this time of year, attending the Winter Wonderland Holiday Fundraiser is a surefire way to lift your spirits. Spend time with a group of supportive, like-minded women, and raise a glass to the sisterhood! This year’s Winter Wonderland theme is beauty, elegance, style, and love. Enjoy some excellent food and fellowship, and dance the night away with purpose.
