Getting Ready for the Holidays

The holiday season is COMING! Are you ready??

The Holiday Season is a high time for depression. For some it’s triggered like a Pavlov’s dog experiment. I know it’s early in the year, but I wanted to bring awareness to this topic now for those who suffer through the holidays. Let’s talking about 3 things you can do to prevent the holiday blues from taking over you this year!

Be Honest. One of the biggest reasons why people that are depressed can’t get help is because they never voice how they feel. Even now in mid-October you should be sharing your feelings and preparing your loved ones for what’s coming. This year make a decision not to hide, suffering from depression is not your fault and noting to be ashamed of.

Mend Relationships NOW. If you have family members, co-workers, and/or friends that share a strained relationship with you and you haven’t made an effort to fix it, the time is NOW. Relationship woes are an easy and accessible trigger to induce depression. Don’t let another week go by without fixing any relationships that is out of kilter.

Be Open to Change. Changing your routine is a great way to break inner cycles as well. Be open to doing things different. Maybe plan a trip away with your immediate family at a resort or cook/bake different foods this year (plan a Mexican theme meal)

I know it’s not quite the Holiday season yet, but this is the time to be preventive so that you can enjoy this Holiday season to the fullest!!
