During the holidays, we tend to put a lot of pressure on ourselves. We want to have the best holiday for our families so we give ourselves unreasonable expectations. The best thing to do is to make a list of all that things that you want to get done. Seeing it on paper helps you realize what you can reasonably accomplish. It is also good to distance yourself from toxic people. Sometimes people think that because it’s a holiday, they can get away with behavior that is unappealing.
- Avoid toxic behavior and clear your mind of negative thoughts and instead replace them with positive ones.
- Don’t overload yourself with too many tasks and instead make a list and set your priorities.
- Be grateful to yourself and start appreciating everything that you have. Send a note or a call and keep in touch with those you love.
“Oftentimes seeing on paper what you expect and what you can reasonably accomplish can help you redefine what is possible and what is essentially impossible to accomplish.”
