Boca Raton, FL - The holidays are a joyful time from Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year’s Eve with gatherings with family and friends filled with cheer and good will from singing familiar carols and other holidays songs of the season. However, there also lies the stress of seeing family members who we may not get along with and this may include friends. Dr. Latz of A Unique Therapy Center has tips how to work out and plan for issues with family members and friends.
“During family and social gatherings, we are faced with quarrelsome people, family members and friends,” says Dr. Latz. “The ones who bring, stress, conflict and emotionally drain us, and we actually dread seeing so we approach holiday gatherings with trepidation and even fear.”
“You obviously cannot control the behavior of others, only your own, by playing to your own strengths so you are adjusting to how you will respond this may actually change their behavior,” advises Dr. Latz.” When you react with light heartedness and even good humor this may stop them in their tracks.”
“In order to make the holidays fun and not monotonous why not take on specific projects or ideas that will make your family members more light hearted and unique?” advises Dr. Latz.
The Holiday season is also be a time to pause and reflect deeply on all our accomplishments we had in the year and challenges we faced.
“Instead of criticizing yourself for mistakes think of all you have been able to overcome. Truly love yourself, embrace self-acceptance, find gratitude and hope for the coming year for even better things. What else will you have to look forward to? Who, knows let’s find out?”
