Lessen the Holiday Stressin’ with Some Perspective

Feeling overwhelmed? Wondering how you’re going to get it all done? Wishing you could just lie down? You aren’t alone.

The holidays can be stressful. Often, there’s a lot to do and a lot to buy and a lot of people to see. Sometimes we get so busy we have a hard time enjoying events that we’re otherwise looking forward to.

But we can make this holiday season less stressful for ourselves. Below are two tips to enjoy the holidays more.

Accept that the holidays will probably be, at times, disappointing

Acceptance is a strangely effective strategy for feeling happier and more relaxed at any time of the year.

When we accept a person or a situation we find challenging, we let go of the resistance that creates stress and tension. There’s a lot of truth to the adage that “what we resist, persists.”

Here’s how this works: When someone or something is being a pain in your rear, take a deep breath and accept the situation.

Say to yourself something like, “I accept that Jane is upset right now; I allow this situation to be as it is.”

Then, notice how you’re feeling — and accept how you’re feeling. You can say to yourself, “I accept that I am feeling angry at Jane and disappointed. I allow my feelings to be as they are right now.”

Accepting a disappointing situation or person can be difficult. But it’s worth not only attempting, but developing as a practice. That’s because the alternatives you’re left with aren’t too pleasant.

Here are some scenarios that might seem familiar. These are examples of common situations and their equally common reactions, and how negative they can be.

The Aggressive

Judge and criticize others and the disappointing situation in general, and blame others for your own negative feelings.

What will happen? Some people will likely feel wrongly accused, or like you’re trying to “fix” them. Others might feel hurt, while simultaneously you’ll feel tense and lonely.

The Wounded

Nurse your anxiety and despair over the situation through rumination.

When you ruminate, you’ll likely think about what’s wrong with the situation or person as often as possible. You might even feel like telling everyone what you don’t like about the situation or person. What will happen? This will successfully amplify both your negative feelings and the difficulty of the situation.

The Oblivious

Deny how difficult the situation is by pretending that nothing is bothering you. You can stuff your hard feelings down by drinking too much or by staying really, really busy and stressed.

What will happen? When you avoid situations you don’t want to deal with, you might miss meaningful traditions and events.

Criticism, judgment, rumination, blaming, denial, and avoidance are almost like holiday rituals for some of us. But they’re all tactics of resistance, and they won’t protect you.

Ironically, these tactics will allow the disappointments or difficulties to further embed themselves into your psyche.

Resistance doesn’t make us less stressed or more joyful in difficult situations. What does work is to simply accept that the circumstance is currently hard.
We can accept a difficult situation, and still make an effort to improve things. This gentle acceptance does not mean that you’re resigned to a miserable holiday, or that nothing you do will make the situation better. Maybe it will get better — and maybe it won’t.

Accepting the reality of a difficult situation allows us to soften. This softening opens the door to our own compassion and wisdom; and we all know that over the holidays, we’re going to need those things.

Let go of expectations while turning your attention to what you appreciate

Some people suffer from what could be called an abundance paradox: Because we have so much, it becomes easy to take our good fortune for granted. As a result, we’re more likely to feel disappointed when we don’t get what we want than to feel grateful when we do.

This tendency can be especially pronounced during the holidays, when we tend to have high hopes that everything will be perfect and wonderful and memorable. You might have a fantasy of a sweet, close relationship with an in-law, for instance, or grand ideas about the perfect Christmas Eve dinner.

This sort of hope can be a slippery slope to unhappiness.

Hoping a holiday event will be the best-ever can quickly become a feeling that we won’t be happy unless it is, leading to sadness and disappointment when reality doesn’t live up to our ideal.
Unfortunately, the reality of the holidays is unlikely to ever outdo our fantasies of how great everything could be. So the trick is to ditch our expectations and instead notice what’s actually happening in the moment. And then find something about that moment to appreciate.

Can you appreciate that your spouse did a lot of planning (or dishes or shopping) this week? Do you feel grateful that you have enough food for your holiday table? Are you thankful for your health (or if your health is not great, that you’re still here)?

It’s enough to notice and appreciate the small things, but if you’re having trouble with this, try practicing an extreme form of gratitude that involves contemplating how fleeting our lives may be.

What if this were the last holiday season you had with your family? What would you do differently? How would you approach challenging situations?

Don’t be a victim to the holiday blues

As the holidays approach, we will likely feel stressed and exhausted, but we need not feel like victims to this time of year.

We often have a great deal of choice about what we do and how we feel. We can choose to bring acceptance to difficult situations and emotions, and we can choose to turn our attention to the things that we appreciate.

This holiday season, may we all see abundance when it is all around us — not an abundance of stuff, necessarily, but rather an abundance of love and connection. Even during the difficult bits.

    I think the commercialization of the holidays has nearly ruined it. Thanksgiving is about a moment to feel gratitude for our blessings, not a time to plan where you’re going to spend money. Christmas-for those who celebrate it- is a time to celebrate a miracle that changed the world, the greatest gift. New Years is a time to spend with dear friends- not strangers in a bar. If we simplify, set our goals much lower, we can feel the joy of the season.

    I’ve seriously cut back on Christmas! At 70 years old, the shopping, running around, going into debt is just not
    something I want to do anymore and it has reduced the stress tremendously! You can still enjoy the holidays just
    by spending time with family.

    Christmas is an Ideological pagan representation of a symbolic christian ritual that should be done away with to reduce the stress and financial burden that we are supposed to uphold due to a lie started by the church of England to perpetuate another lie.
    It has nothing what-so-ever to do with Christian history or values and only gives us a reason to lie to ourselves and children.

        Religion has nothing to do with Christmas. Christ was not born on Christmas. It was used as a holiday to celebrate the pagan holiday of the winter solstice.

      I am so sorry to read that. I’m just another employee, not a PHMP person, but I wanted to give you some encouragement. When I feel depressed, one of my only senses of joy comes from volunteering with homeless/low income folks at a community meal. It sure makes me feel thankful for what I have, what I can do (even if it’s just scooping a serving of green bean casserole to a hundred hungry people.)

      I think I the over commercialization of the holidays, especially Christmas, makes it more stressful. When they start playing Christmas music and have decorations in the stores by the 2nd week of October, its massive overkill. I refuse to acknowledge Christmas until after thanksgiving.
