The holidays are a joyful time for many and extremely
difficult for others.
For those who have a hard time, people can give you a lot of
recommendations, can’t they? Get into the spirit! Decorating will make you feel
better! And lots of others. I happen to get benefit from being with other
people. I love holiday crowds. But I’m not everyone!
I found this article in Psychology Today about why
meditation doesn’t work for everyone. It impressed me. It lists 5 conditions
that make meditation difficult, even harmful. Take a look if you’ve found no
benefits from medication.
One this those of us with depression are good at is hiding
it behind a smile. You never can tell what a person is thinking or feeling,
just by looking.
The end is the part I like: finding your own form of
meditation. Like the guy who lost himself in his carving, I can lose myself in
my fiction. I never realized it before, but writing is my meditation. I mean, I’ve
always known that I’m in better mental health when I’m writing, but I’ve never
put it that way. I know some people exercise to stay sane. Do you have anything
I expect to have a very good Christmas. There will be 5
grandchildren present. That’s a formula for happiness!
