In this episode of Thrive Underwater, Shani and Autumn discuss how the holidays can upend our children and how this can be a hefty mental load for us. They discuss the holiday "PAIN": Preparation, Adventure, Ignorance, and Nest Unrest. They also discuss tools that can help support our mental health during the holiday pain. Changing expectations is a great place to start! Maybe enlist an advocate at the family gathering or party? Understanding that rituals are a powerful part of being human can help us navigate these waters. Creating rituals that fit our family can be liberating and fun for everyone! Don't forget to find a moment to enjoy your hot chocolate, throw on some fuzzy slippers, and enjoy just being you! Happy Holidays from our family to yours! Keep on Thriving!
