We may feel enough pressure during normal times to host the perfect gathering, give the perfect gift, cook the perfect meal, or buy the perfect outfit. This year, just as the stressors we face may look different or be amplified, so might the pressures and expectations. We may feel pressure as we look to adapt traditions and routines to meet the public health guidelines we are following, or to find virtual ways to gather with friends and family. During these times of pressure and expectations, consider how these pressures can be eliminated and your own wellbeing can be prioritized. Particularly if you experience heightened negative emotions during the holidays or are experiencing this during the time of COVID-19, be gentle with yourself, eliminate pressures as much as possible, and find ways to slow down this season.
