3 Tips to beat Social Anxiety around the Holidays

The holidays can certainly be a time full of love, giving, and connection. It can also be a time where many people feel stressed, overwhelmed, alone, and anxious.

Here are 3 tips you can use to navigate around the anxiety that can come up around food and self image during this time of year.

  • Food choices – Make a list of what’s important to you. Your values and beliefs. Maybe you’ve changed your diet recently and know its different than what others will be eating. Remember – you’re doing what’s best for you and what feels right for you. Own that and be darn proud of it. Maybe there’s some nervousness you have about it – that’s okay. See if you can turn those nerves into excitement. Share with others your excitement about what you’re changing and how its been a positive impact on your life. You’re carving your own path which is BEAUTIFUL. Go ahead and embrace it!
  • Achieving success – the feeling we should have achieved success by now ( whatever that means! ) and if we feel we haven’t we can be afraid to disappoint. Remember – we all define success in our own way. We are also typically waaaay farther along than we typically think we are. Your path is your own – and you are RIGHT where you are supposed to be. If someone else thinks otherwise – well that’s their opinion, which is okay, but you are perfectly where you’re supposed to be.
  • Body image – before heading out to spend time with family and friends this holiday season – take a couple extra minutes in front of your bathroom mirror and give yourself a little pep talk. Say ‘I love you, I love you, I love you, every single little bit of you’, directly to yourself looking into your own eyes. Express gratitude to your own self, for your body, and everything about you. You are perfect just as you are. Curves or no curves. Hair or no hair. When we love who we are ourselves, it teaches and allows others to love us right back.

May these help you in navigating through your journey and empower you to stand even taller, stronger, and prouder. Happy holidays πŸ™‚
