TEN81 Dec 2018 Theme: Coping with the holiday blues

• Manage your expectations. The holidays will not magically transform your life; you will still have to do something to improve it

• Give back to the community. Spend time with people who need more than you do

• Stop comparing your life with the lives of others; don’t look at their Facebook or Instagram updates

• Spend time simply with significant people in your life

• Download inspirational podcasts and listen to them when you are alone

• Get outdoors. Take a walk or hike and let nature fill your senses

• Get creative or immerse yourself in art.
