Five Tips to Manage Holiday Stress
Luh yourself first/enough – Remember that you are fearfully and wonderfully made; and you’re probably surrounded by people that make withdrawals from you (family, co-workers, friends, etc.). It’s especially important to make yourself a priority during the holidays, because you have thangs to do.
Receive – Allow others to pour into you as you pour into them.
Let your yes be yes, no be no – Don’t succumb to pressure of being (or doing) anything you don’t want to do, and say don’t feel guilty about doing the things you love. No is a complete sentence. So is yes.
Don’t try to change ’em – With the exception of the children that you may be responsible for nurturing, you can’t make anybody do anything. Stay away from the Twitter beefs and resolve to accept folks as they are; you just change the way you all them to affect you.
Protect ya newsfeed – Social media can suck. Guard your online spaces like you would your home.
