Navigating the Bermuda Triangle of the Holidays
Maybe you’re overwhelmed by the pressure to fit into a Halloween costume. Maybe you’re struggling with depression, and the many Thanksgiving messages about gratitude just make you want to isolate even further. Maybe you feel the pressure to host “perfect” holiday parties, with “perfect” food and the “perfect” entertainment. Maybe you’re grieving the loss of a loved one this holiday season and are unsure of how to celebrate — or even cope with life — without them. For all these reasons and more, some people refer to Winter Holidays as the Bermuda Triangle. This time of year brings with it A LOT of social gatherings, meals, friends and family members, and triggers … which can create a perfect storm for our mental health. Join Shannon Kopp and Landry Yarborough LPC, NCC to discuss tools for practicing mental wellness and self-care through the end of the year and beyond.
