What about you? Is Christmas, Chanakuk, Kwanzaa or another name, represent how you celebrate this Joyous Season? Are you one of those, who likes to be extra generous, kind, share gifts and spread lots of holiday joy! For me. my family loves to watch me bake, eat well, laugh and sing songs to appreciate our belief, that a King was Born!
Although I am happy, someone we know may not be. And what about you? The coming New Year 2017 can also be a heavy source of holiday sadness for many around, who are hiding under the mistletoe, missing deceased loved ones, yet laughing loud at the holiday festivities and deep within holding on to hidden hurts. We don't know what people are thinking but many times they show clues. Like going home alone and feeling overwhelmed and being depressed is hard to see. What about you? Feeling depressed around the winter holiday season may also be a condition known as seasonal affective disorder (SAD) sometimes referred to a seasonal depression which can trigger in other seasons too. What about You? But this SAD is tends to occur as the days grow shorter in the fall and winter, due to decreasing amounts of sunlight and colder temperatures as the season progress.
Together, we can help others become a little less stressed, by saying something encouraging, with acts of kindness and perhaps inviting them to share in a meal. I believe also you must learn to trust your inner voice. Pay closer attention to peoples attitudes, words and actions. With all of our knowledge, we must 1st learn to take time for self! Taking time for yourself adds strength and healing to you. What about You? So rememeber to make time, take 2-4 hours out for yourself. Your mind and body will better serve you. Try it, because a little rest and relaxation goes a very long way.
