The holidays, for many of us, is a time of happiness, fun, love, and gratitude as we reunite with our loved ones, our friends and neighbors for beautiful parties and celebration. We experience so many emotions that fill us with happiness for the rest of the year, but this isn’t the case for all. For some, the holidays resembles a time of sadness, self-reflection, loneliness and anxiety, creating a fear of the holiday season.
Typical sources of holiday sadness include
- unrealistic expectations,
- financial stress,
- the inability to be with one’s family and friends,
- In addition to sadness, many people feel holiday anxiety or stress, particularly when they feel unable to cope with the demands upon them.
The holidays are a very sensitive time of the year and we take this into account, making sure everyone makes a new friend and feels at home with us at Harmony. At Harmony we do not only enjoy a variety of fun and games but we also enjoy each other’s company as we sign along to seasonal carols. With us you can allow yourself to feel the seasonal warmth.
