How to Remain Thankful During Stressful Holidays

The holidays can be a stressful time. With so many parties, events, and spending to think about, it’s easy for the stress of the season to make us forget about being thankful. Everyone wants to enjoy the festivities and make sure that everything goes off without a hitch; yet we often overlook the importance of feeling grateful during this time of year. Here are some tips on how to remain thankful during the stressful holidays.

1. Take Time for Yourself

The hustle and bustle of the holiday season can leave you feeling stressed out and overwhelmed. It’s important to take some time for yourself during this busy season.

Make sure that you get in some restorative activities like yoga or meditation, or try reading a book or taking a hot bath. Taking some time out of your day just for yourself will help you relax and reset your mind so that you can be more mindful of what you are grateful for in life.

2. Focus on Your Goals

It's easy to get caught up in all the holiday festivities, but don't forget about your goals in life! Take out some time each week before or after the holidays to focus on your long-term goals and objectives.

This will help keep you grounded and remind yourself why it is important to stay focused on moving ahead even when there is chaos around you. It may also give you something else to be thankful for—like having big dreams for your future.

3. Practice Gratitude Every Day

The holiday season can often bring with it feelings of sadness and loneliness as well as stress. To combat these difficult emotions, remember to practice gratitude every day—even if it is just writing down three things that you are thankful for at the end of each day before bedtime! This simple act will help brighten your spirits amidst all the chaos, reminding us that we have something positive going on even when times get tough.


At its core, being thankful during stressful holidays isn’t rocket science—it is simply a matter of taking some time out of our busy schedule and refocusing our energy towards what we are grateful for in life.

Whether by meditating, setting goals, or practicing gratitude daily—all these small actions add up over time making us more aware of how much we have going right instead of focusing on what could go wrong. By using these tips, women everywhere can use this holiday season as an opportunity to grow their thankfulness while managing their finances with ease!
