This year, the holidays will be a lot different and much more poignant for many.
Due to current world events, most gatherings will be limited, and many will find themselves alone, grieving, and missing loved ones. This means that along with the typical holiday triggers, many will be struggling with the idea of being separated from those they hold dear. These feelings of isolation and loneliness can have a profound impact on well-being; therefore, it is important to have tools to cope with these emotions to prevent the negative repercussions that can result.
As we move closer to the days of celebration, I wanted to provide specific self-care and holistic tips to assist with supporting mental and physical health. In this article, you will find:
- various integrative, behavioral, and holistic resources to promote wellness, decrease stress, and assist with emotional upliftment
- a highlighted section on one of my favorite naturopathic medicine modalities to modulate brain physiology and mood, essential oils
- access for my subscribers to my yearly Holiday Essential Oils Webinar
If you would like tools to help deal with loneliness and isolation more specifically, please see my previous article.*
