This year has been super challenging and even frustrating at times and while 2020 hasn’t lived up to our expectations, there’s still time to make it a great year. Part of making this year better is thinking positively and going into 2021, it’s time to shift your perspective. Here are a few ways to stay positive this holiday season.
Connect with Family
When you’re feeling lonely, connect with your family. While you may be sick of video calls, they’re a great way to get everyone involved. Other ways to connect include picking up the phone and writing letters.
Volunteering in person is more difficult, but there are tons of opportunities online. You can donate to a cause that’s important to you, offer your talents to a nonprofit organization, or fundraise by sending emails or writing letters.
Interact with Coworkers
In the beginning, working from home seemed like a real treat, but now it has become isolating. While many companies have started doing virtual and video conferencing, it’s not the same as being with your coworkers in the office. Reconnect with your coworkers through virtual happy hours or phone calls.
Try the new creative activity you’ve been putting off like taking pictures or learning to knit. Creative activities will boost your mood and social relationships.
