The holiday season is upon us, and we can already feel things change. Family members are making plans, decorations are on shelves in stores, plane tickets are being bought, and the weather is finally becoming colder. Through these changes, we know that these next coming months will be filled with laughter, joy, and happiness, but we also know that for some these months mean anxiety, depression, and heightened mental health episodes. It’s incredibly important that you take the time to listen to your body and do the things that are going to support your mental health. Limiting social media, creating boundaries with family members and friends, and feeling your emotions are all things you can do to create a better environment for you during these next couple of months. The most important thing is to be kind to yourself through this season and know that you are doing the best that you can do at this very moment.
