We know what you’re thinking: How in the world are we supposed to get through this 2020 holiday season? This Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Kwanza, Christmas, and New Year will be different than any other ones that we’ve ever experienced, so how are we supposed to know how to go about celebrating safely? We’ve created a guide for you to help you celebrate the holidays while also staying healthy – both mentally and physically. Here are five ways to navigate the 2020 holiday season in the age of COVID-19.
There’s a lot that we might be missing out on this 2020 holiday season, but focusing on that isn’t going to make us feel any better. The holidays are a time to focus on the positive, even amid quarantine and COVID-19. Even though quarantine is not ideal, there’s still plenty of positivity to focus on – and focusing on this positivity is one way to protect your mental health during quarantine.
One way you can do this is by gratitude journaling. Try writing down at least five things that you’re grateful for during the 2020 holiday season. You might even want to spread extra positivity and gratitude by letting people know that you’re grateful for them. If you wrote down a certain person on your gratitude list, shoot them a text letting them know that you’re grateful for them and why. This is a great way to share the love during Thanksgiving 2020 and Christmas 2020, despite the chaos that coronavirus has caused. Practicing gratitude daily is a great healthy habit to form throughout the holiday season and beyond.
As we all know, the holiday season usually flies by super quickly, seemingly in the blink of an eye. Before we know it, it will be the new year and time for some new year’s resolutions. Get a head start on this by setting goals for the holiday season. Use the extra time you have this 2020 holiday season to set goals personally and professionally. Not sure where to start? Ask yourself the following questions.
While we are still in quarantine and still dealing with physical isolation, we must stay connected with other human beings in the ways that we can.

Here are some ideas for virtual get-togethers that you can do with family or friends.

Here are some resources that may be helpful in your self-growth journey.
