Becky and Diana provide strategies for creating a happier holiday experience.

  • Our own expectations can create one of the biggest challenges of the holidays.
  • Expect and accept that things change when reconnecting.
  • Respect the differences of the people you will be surrounded by.
  • Remember to respect yourself and your needs, too.
  • Pre-planned responses and actions are great strategies for preparing for an event – whether at a relative’s house or at a party.
  • Pre-plan for less social times too. If you find yourself alone during the holidays, volunteer or create your own traditions.
  • Beware of over committing and over doing.
  • Have an exit strategy for each event you attend.
  • During each event you attend take an internal energy check to help decide what you need to do next.
  • Embrace some solitude.
