- ITS TIME FOR ME
As an adult you no doubt have had many years of holidays with family and friends. Now that the situation has changed Nan suggests looking for a new opportunities for yourself such as volunteering at a food pantry, animal shelter or senior center for the holidays. When you help others you will see that there are plenty of people who appreciate what you do. As you give to others the feeling of empowerment finds its way to you; and maybe that’s just what you needed this holiday season and that is the spirit of the holiday.
- NEW TRADITIONS SHOULD BE CREATED
“Make memories sharing things that are new and fun with your family and friends.” Cohen says. “You don’t have to eliminate past traditions, but you might have to include them in new ways.” Children need continuity, so hanging those decorations, lighting the menorah or selecting a Christmas tree can be especially important for the parent hosting children in a new location. “ The things you do together will stick as memories; so do some baking, make handmade gifts , or volunteer to help those in need ,“ she says. Create quality time –for children and for yourself and you’ll never regret time spent with your family or others.
- PUT THE KIDS IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Be there for your children, your nieces and nephews and other children you know. Let go of those simmering emotions and focus on the joys and wonders of the season. Children only get one chance to be children. Let them enjoy every moment they can!
