The holidays are here – are you ready? The holidays are a great time to see loved ones and the ones you don’t get to see often. The holidays are also a great time to spend extra time with your immediate family and enjoy a nice vacation off from school.


However, the holidays can also be a time of chaos and when you witness conflict or fighting amongst relatives. So how do you keep sane when everyone around you seems to be going insane? Here are some tips that might help to maintain your sanity:


Find some relaxing activities to do, like take a walk or a long bath.


– Try to give yourself some ‘me-time’.


– Give back to the community (volunteer at food pantries, soup kitchens) – it will also get you out of the house.


– Get enough rest and maintain a healthy diet.


I’m pretty sure there are tons of other things that help us survive the holidays. Feel free to list any ideas that others may find helpful or that works for you.
