Happy Next Christmas
Christmas is an interesting time of the year. In an ideal world it’s the season to spend with friends and family and have a relaxing and rewarding time. If you believe the old American films, this is the way it should be and for some of us this is the case. Even during a supposedly ideal Christmas there can be anxiety involved in the preparation, organization and cooking.
A wife or husband or partner who can ordinarily cook for a small family without stress can suffer a lack of confidence ,anxiety and stress when confronted with cooking for a large number of people.
I also find it’s a time when we reflect on past Christmases and on the year gone by and see how our life has moved on. For some it’s a fractious time because not all families are harmonious but there is often the expectation to get together with them.
For some it’s a lonely time if you don’t have any family to celebrate with. It can also be lonely if due to low mood, stress or anxiety you find friendships and gatherings difficult.
The above states of mind may limit or even stop you joining in with the festivities. A general lack of confidence over the past year might make you feel isolated. If you have any of these limiting conditions now it would be good to address them so that next Christmas will be better. Hypnotherapy can help with these problems to create a better and more satisfying life.
Whoever you are, whatever your situation, I wish you a happy and fulfilling Christmas.
