While the holidays can be a time of joy and celebration, they can also be stressful and lonely for many. Whether you’re having to deal with family issues at gatherings this year, or you’re feeling alone and isolated during the holidays, it’s important to make your mental health a priority.
If you feel overwhelmed by all of the events on your calendar, know that it’s okay to say no to some events and stay in and relax. If you find yourself hosting this holiday season, ease your burden by asking others to help you with the party preparations.
Or, if your calendar is feeling empty and you’re missing your family and friends this year, make an effort to get out there and celebrate with members of your community. Whether you decide to volunteer at a shelter, visit the local nursing home, or attend a Christmas event at a local church, there are a number of activities in your community that will allow you to make connections with your neighbors.
Make your mental health a priority this holiday season. If you want to talk to a professional, call Shenandoah Psychiatric Medicine, a group of psychiatrists in Augusta County, VA, who care about your mental well-being year round.
