The Holidays are among us and for some, it can be extremely stressful. Some people experience stress from work, loss of a loved one, witness to violence, depression, anxiety, financial strain, and even homelessness. During the holidays make sure you practice taking time out of your busy schedule for self-care. Practice taking an active role in protecting your own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress. Self-care activities can range from physical activities such as exercising and eating healthy, to mental activities such as reading a book, taking a walk or practicing mindfulness, to spiritual or social activities such as praying or catching lunch with a friend. You don’t have to spend money for self-care, but some individuals could benefit from a spa day, or massage to relieve stress. Write some activities down that you love doing or would like to try and choose one or two that help you to relax or feel stress-free. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from the STEP Team at Philadelphia Virtual Academy (PVA)!
