Holiday Survival During Tumultuous Times

The holidays are meant to be a joyful time for families to come together and celebrate, but often, the stress and busyness of the season can overshadow all of the otherwise merry festivities. For those of us going through a tough time (be it recovery, sickness, the anxiety, insert your struggle here!) the holidays can be an especially taxing time of year. Between the parties, shows, family get-togethers, shopping, cooking and other special events, remaining in a state of health and balance can feel downright difficult. But with the right intentions and a system of positive support and community, we can make it through into the New Year with an even better outlook, and healthier attitude than they started out with.

Here’s your holiday survival guide to keep you in good health, even in the midst of the bustling, holiday season:

  • Keep Practicing Your Rituals: It can be all too easy to overschedule yourself or let other activities encroach on your well-established health routines but don’t let the busy time of year derail your healthy practices. Take your quiet time when you need it. Get to bed at the same time you usually do. Keep writing in your journal. Keep meditating. Keep taking care of yourself.


  • Keep Prioritizing a Healthy Lifestyle: Of course it’s okay to enjoy some of the delicious treats of the season, like cookies, chocolates, cocoa and more, do what feels right! But not straying too far from your typical healthy diet and activity levels will help you to feel your best throughout, both physically and mentally, and will help you to avoid getting off track in your recovery journey.
