#732 Tis the season to be merry..

I can't believe it is December already!! and the festive's have begun..
December is the time when the stores are seasonably festooned and filled with all sorts of goodies, ubiquitous holiday music playing endlessly, houses decorated with twinkling lights, television shows about families celebrating and setting aside their differences, commercials filled with happy families and joyful children receiving their secretly wished-for gifts from the white bearded, rotund and red-suited, ho-ho-hoing figure. I love this time of year. But not everyone is able to get into the holiday spirit, thus giving rise to the term holiday blues.  

How could anyone feel blue during the time when holiday cheer abounds? There are many reasons: loneliness, financial hardships, stress, anxiety and depression. People who are alone or cannot be with their families during the holidays can find this time difficult. Financial hardships for people on a tight budget can also add to the difficulty of living up to the often consumer-driven frenzy of holiday gift-giving. Trying to do too much in keeping with what is expected of us during the holiday time can cause stress and anxiety, leaving us feeling despondent.  

Of course, you can beat the holiday blues by taking some practical steps. 

Take time to reflect on all the positives in your life and count your blessings. Try to appreciate and be grateful for what you have. Remind yourself that your life does not have to resemble a television holiday special. You do not have to follow a script and live up to unrealistic expectations for the perfect holiday. Remember, the best gifts do not always have to cost a lot of money. Inner happiness is seldom derived from money and material things. In case of true material need, money does relieve suffering but there is plenty of evidence to show that having lots of money seldom makes people happy. So if you know someone that may be spending Christmas alone, sing out and invite them over to celebrate one of the best Christmas they can have..
