Tip #21 for the holiday season: Find nourishing ways to connect with others
You may find parties and big gatherings overwhelming and not the most optimal way to feel connected with your dear ones. Connecting with others is proven to relieve stress, boost well-being and support mental health. So be sure to create some opportunities for the sort of connecting that is meaningful and fulfilling for you. Bake cookies with your kids. Go for a walk with a friend. Sip tea with a loved one. Wrap presents with someone who makes you laugh. Whatever you do, don’t go the busy holiday season alone. It’s so much more fun to wait in line with a friend.
Some of our favorite nourishing activities:
Christi-an: I love going for hikes and breathing in the fresh air and the scent of the spruce trees.
Jade: I love going to a quiet cafe with close friends to seek solace from the holiday hustle and bustle!
