    Anxiety During The Holiday Season

    While the holidays can be a time for love, gratitude, and community, they can also be a really difficult time for many people. Sometimes, nothing in your outer world seems wrong, but deep within, you may be experiencing overwhelming worry, fear, and anxiety. And this anxiety can come from many sources.

    You may feel anxiety about social gatherings. Or maybe you’re experiencing anxiety due to loneliness. The abundance of food can cause a lot of people to feel anxious, losing their sense of calm and stability. Gift giving and money worries can also cause anxiety for many. Or possibly, past experiences have caused you to dread the holidays rather than look forward to them.

    No matter how you’re feeling, I want you to know this: nothing about the way you feel is wrong.

    So please, don’t label these feelings as wrong. Don’t try to suppress them for the sake of false positivity.

    Tend to your anxiety with gentle love and compassion.

    Step outside and take deep breaths when social events begin to feel overwhelming. Give yourself grace when the food choices cause your chest to tighten and feel heavy. Love yourself extra when you’re worried about money. Take care of your whole self: mind, body, and soul.

    If you are to give yourself one gift this year, give yourself the gift of self-compassion.

    Below, you’ll find 45 calming affirmations for holiday anxiety. Use these affirmations throughout the holiday season to help you feel grounded, calm, and centered. Remember that you are the only one in control of your emotions. You are in charge of your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs.

    Take care of yourself. Give yourself extra love. Breathe deeply. And remember that you are worthy of your own love, kindness, and compassion – always.

    Holiday Positive Affirmations

    I’m going to be completely honest here: I publish new affirmation blog posts every week, plus I fill my Instagram stories with positive affirmations every day, but coming up with a list of holiday positive affirmations has been the most difficult endeavor yet.

    When I set out to create this list, it didn’t seem that difficult at first. But very quickly, I realized that these affirmations are a little different than others because every single person reading these has a different relationship to the holidays.

    For some, the holidays might be a wonderful gathering of family and loved ones. For others, it might feel a little more lonely. Some may experience major anxiety around the holidays, whether it’s food anxiety, social anxiety, gift-giving anxiety, or something else.

    So there is no “one size fits all” affirmation to encompass everyone’s holiday experience.

    I’ve divided the affirmations below into five sections: Gratitude & Presence, Family & Loved Ones, Holiday Anxiety, Holiday Food Anxiety, and Quick Go-To Affirmations. Some may be exactly what you need, while others may not fit your experience as well. And that’s okay. Find the ones that resonate the most and allow them to guide you through the holiday season.

    Many of the affirmations are created for the day of the holiday, but they can truly be used any day during the holiday season (and after). The quick go-to affirmations are for those times when you need a quick pick-me-up, but you may not have time to either look up or remember one of your longer affirmations. These go-to affirmations are often the ones I lean on when I need to calm my inner world, and they’re just as powerful and profound as the longer affirmations.

    I hope these holiday positive affirmations serve and support you throughout the holiday season (and beyond).
