Coping with the Holidays During COVID-19


One Source EAP Connections – November 2020

Think Outside the Box this Holiday Season

The holidays are just around the corner. During the holidays, we normally experience a range of emotions from excitement and joy to stress and loneliness.

The 2020 holiday season, and the ways in which we celebrate, will look significantly different, threatening to put a damper on positive emotions and increase negative ones. However, with some additional preparation and some out-of-the-box thinking, we can have a joyful holiday season.

Coping with the holidays during COVID-19 begins with identifying and respecting your own needs, concerns and motivations, then communicating them. Creativity and technology can help make sure everyone is included in a safe and healthy way.

Check out the resources at right to help you plan your holiday celebrations in a way that supports your traditions and your emotional health.
