Thru the Holidays
 
 
Here are a few helpful suggestions for taking care of yourself during the holiday season.
 
* Set priorities by doing only the things you want to or are capable of doing. And give yourself permission to say "no".
 
* Make a plan for your holiday celebrations-take control of them; don't let them take control of you.
 
*Learn to ask for and accept help from family and friends.
 
* Be careful not to isolate yourself. It is all right to take time for yourself, but try not to cut yourself off from the support of family and friends.
 
* Understand that the holidays my affect other family members. As you make plans, talk to others, share your feelings and respect others choices and needs.
 
* Expect to experience feelings of emotional pain. When the feelings come, embrace them.
 
* Accept a few invitations to be with close family or friends. Choose the ones that sound most appealing at the time and decline the ones that feel more like an obligation.
 
* Give yourself permission to experience joy.
