The holiday season can be stressful for all and really that is quite a shame. It can be such a lovely season of family closeness, joy and remembrance of all that is good.
One way you can help yourself and your family is to speak words of calm.
Saying “it’s alright” or “let’s take a break” can change the mood and help people de-stress. You can also ask questions like, “Remember when?” and invite people into moments of connection (whether that is asking for a kiss or inviting people to play a board game).
Pause. Take a breath. Speak something that helps everyone slow down, relax and connect with others.
I feel like saying we need to all calm down a little. Let’s take the time to breathe. Pauline Marois
