5. Be Kind to Yourself
Many people are sad and lonely during the holidays, so you are not alone in feeling this way. Take the pressure off yourself to be happy if you really don’t feel happy. Fighting against or suppressing your emotions will only make you feel worse. Accept them for what they are and be compassionate to yourself.
Whatever the reason for your sadness, remember that this is just a season that will soon be over. If, however, your symptoms of depression become overwhelming or if you feel like nothing you do is helping, think about getting help from a professional. Reach out to your doctor or a therapist.
