Taking Care of Your Mental Health During The Christmas Season

The holidays can be a time of joy, but for many people, it can also be a time of stress, anxiety and depression. With so much to do and so many expectations, it's important to take time for yourself to care for your mental health. Here are some tips on how you can promote healthy mental habits during the holiday season. 

The holidays can be a time of joy, but for many people, it can also be a time of stress, anxiety and depression. With so much to do and so many expectations, it's important to take time for yourself to care for your mental health. Here are some tips on how you can promote healthy mental habits during the holiday season. 

Practice Self-Care 
It's important to remember that you cannot pour from an empty cup - make sure you are taking the necessary steps to ensure that your needs are being met. That could mean something as simple as taking a few minutes each day for yourself or scheduling in regular breaks throughout the day. If it helps, create a list of activities that make you feel relaxed and fulfilled and make sure to include those in your routine. It is also helpful to set boundaries with yourself and others about what is acceptable behavior - this will help prevent stress from building up over time. 

Keep Up Healthy Habits 
The holidays can often lead to unhealthy eating habits due to all the sugary treats around, but it’s important not to forget about self-care when it comes to food too. Try your best to maintain healthy habits even during special occasions - focus on getting plenty of sleep, drinking lots of water, eating nutritious meals and snacks, and exercising regularly if possible. All of these things will help keep your energy levels up and reduce stress levels. 

Connect With Others 
Humans are social creatures by nature; connecting with others is essential for good mental health. Make sure you're reaching out to friends and family members throughout the holiday season - even if it's just a quick phone call or text message. Talking with someone who understands what you're going through can be incredibly healing; don't hesitate to seek out professional help if needed! Remember that no one has all the answers - we're all learning together in this journey called life! 

The holiday season can be full of joy but also stressful at times. Taking care of your mental health should always remain top priority during this time – practice self-care, keep up with healthy habits, connect with others, and don’t forget that seeking professional help is an option if needed. No matter what though – always remember that there is no right or wrong way when it comes to how you celebrate or feel during this special time!

At Refresh Counselling, we offer your first 20-minute session at no charge.  This is your opportunity to ask any question you would like to ask, and get a feel of what future sessions will be like.  This will also give us a chance to get to know you and start preparing for our next session.

We offer you a complimentary consultation (a 20-minute session).  This provides the opportunity to meet your therapist, ask any questions, understand what future sessions will be like, and ensure that you feel safe and a connection with your psychologist.  This also gives us a chance to get to know you a bit and prepare for our next session.

I am so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions. Your active participation and dedication is crucial to your success. After all, we only see each other for a session a week. It’s the work you do outside of our sessions that will really help you see your personal growth and development.

Our psychologists are all very personable and work with a wide range of clients.  It is not necessary to use a 20-minute consultation to see a psychologist.  If you have any specific concerns or are looking for a psychologist who uses a particular methodology we would recommend booking a consultation to better understand your needs and pair you with a psychologist that meets your requirements.
