#Highly Sensitive People: Do You Need Some More Tips To Cope With The Holidays? (Part 3)

Here are some more tips to cope with the holidays as a highly sensitive person. As I mentioned previously, we can celebrate this difficult, but joyous time, on our own terms if we have a plan to do so.

Social Overload

As far as I’m concerned, there are too many social activities this time of the year. What do you think? It can be entirely overstimulating. Remember that it’s okay to choose wisely and say “no” to some things. Don’t spend your time at a party with people whose company you don’t really enjoy. Your true friends and understanding family members won’t hold it against you if you need to take some down time.

Loneliness, Anxiety, Depression

If you’re feeling lonely, seek support and companionship from others. For highly sensitive people, it can be especially intimidating to make the first move, but the benefits almost always outweigh the costs. Loneliness can be a powerful motivator to help us come out of our shells, and you should use it to your advantage. Whether you are the one who is feeling lonely, or know someone who is lonely, try to make an effort to reach out to others. Helping someone or volunteering your time to a cause you believe in will help you feel better about yourself and give you an opportunity to meet others who share your interests.

If you find that you just can’t cope with your anxiety or sadness, get the help you need. The holidays can be a very difficult time. If you are feeling overwhelmed by your feelings, talk to family and friends, or seek out a doctor or mental health professional. As the New Year approaches, it is the perfect time to address issues with anxiety or depression. There is no shortness of help. You just have to be open to receiving it.

These tips can be applied throughout the year. Can you think of any other tips to cope with the holidays? I’m interested in any thoughts or comments that you have.
