This is the time where the holiday season is all around you. You see so many people who seem so happy in life. But for you it’s the opposite, you try to figure out how to not be sad. When you have so many worries surrounding you. As the so-called adult life never stops. You might think you’ll be a bummer by telling someone how you really feel at this time of the year.
Be happy in the now
It’s all about living in the moment and not being sad about what you don’t have and what you do want. It’s about being happy with what you already have. Taking a moment of silence to decompress your thoughts on happiness. I know this is the time where you would probably like the newest gift, and you’ll be sad if you don’t have it. As time passes once you get something you wanted for so long might not impress you anymore.
Write down gratitude
Have you ever heard of what you say happens, and what you write down becomes more likely for it to happen? Whether you believe it or not writing down your thoughts, or opinions can be great. Write down what you already have to be thankful for. Don’t let what other people have that you don’t define who you are. By writing down at least 20 things that your proud of can help give you a better perspective of life.
Talk to someone
I know you might feel like your the only person who’s going through this. But you might be surprised someone might be going through the same things as you. Have a little chit chat with a family member or someone who’s like a sister or brother to you. Being so close to them in the first place you might think they can already feel like something is up with you. It’s not always the case life can get so busy around the holiday season. Ask them if they would like to have lunch together, and start the conversation off slowly.
Spend time with family
Plan a family activity, sometimes being around people that you love can help turn your mood around. It can bring fun into the atmosphere by allowing yourself to let in joy can definitely help you to not be sad. Do some holiday activities like baking cookies, decorating the house, or doing a lights tour around the neighborhood.
Watch a movie
What seems to cheer a lot of people up is watching a holiday movie. A movie that would make you laugh your head off. Be joyful during these months. Try not to let these overwhelming months put too much pressure on your mind. By letting go a little bit can push your level of happiness to a whole different level. Giving your mind a break from real-world problems can help you to not pay too much attention to them.
Listen to music
Whatever holiday you’re celebrating why not listen to some holiday music. What if that one song that comes on gives you a little push to break a smile. Which can go a long way since where you came from wasn’t such a jolly place.
Remember it’s okay to be down sometimes. But, try to live life to the fullest by not lingering too long on your feelings. You’ll feel way better about all the problems, and in the first place not being sad was more simple.
