Jennifer Wolkin, over at Mindful.org lists these as experiences through which many people struggle:
1.Demands on Time
2. Loneliness During the Holidays
3. Expectations of Perfection
4.The Indulge/Guilt Cycle
5. Stress and Family Anxiety
She provides some thoughts on these as well as “mindful antidotes.” Mindfulness is simply the process of training the brain to be aware of the present moment. I encourage you to take a read through the full article: 5 Mindful Tips for Navigating Holiday Stress.
Best wishes for a peaceful and healthy holiday season!
