Survive - 5 Ways To Get Through The Holidays

Don't miss out on the holiday season. Do your best to celebrate and enjoy it as much as possible. Here are 5 tips from Dr. Jonathan Abramowitz, in his article, "Five tips for surviving the holidays." In a nutshell, the 5 tips (in my own words) are . . .

  2. Lower expectations, the holidays don't have to be perfect
  3. Take care of yourself first by modifying and changing how YOU react to people and situations

  5. The holiday season is temporary and will be over before you know it
