During the pandemic, the holidays and upcoming year may feel more daunting than exciting. There’s always the pressure to make resolutions and stick to them, but after a year like 2020, you may be feeling like goals and resolutions are irrelevant when so much is out of your control. It’s easy to settle into an unhealthy routine and lose track of your time while primarily being at home. This has likely led to upsetting emotions due to any stress and/or loss you have gone through this year. If there’s one thing you can do for yourself to have a better upcoming year that is within your control, it’s seeking the help of a psychologist in Los Angeles. Dr. Yvonne Thomas has over 20 years of experience helping clients work through their distress to achieve a healthier and happier quality of life.
It’s Important To Still Celebrate The Holidays To Kick Off A Better 2021
After an unprecedented year, we all need this time to unwind and celebrate the joy of the holidays. While your holiday plans are probably looking different this year, it’s important to make the most out of this special time. Allowing yourself to take a break from all the upset that the pandemic has caused is a huge part of why the holidays can feel so needed during these times.
During these holidays, it’s extra important to set aside time to spend with those you love, even if that means a phone call or Facetiming when you can’t be together. It’ll take effort and planning to separate the holidays from just being another day at home this year, though taking the time to do this can bring some peace and joy to you and your household. Spending the holidays with your immediate family or those you live with during the pandemic is a great way to reconnect. Making time for these rare and peaceful moments to enjoy each other without the chaos of the outside world’s events can set the tone for a happier and healthier year ahead.
