It is a start of another holiday season. People are busy spending time with their family and friends, shopping, cooking, decorating, partying, attending their house of worship, and having a good time. There are all sorts of celebrations going on. It is a joyous time of the year, but it also can be a stressful time for some people. Some people may feel very isolated, alone, sad, anxious or depressed. We all have expectations on how we may want our holiday to be, and sometimes the holiday doesn’t turn out the way we would like it to be.
During these times, because people are feeling stressed, a person’s particular health concern may flare up. Some of these health concerns could be: insomnia and other sleep issues; digestive issues; women’s issues; men’s issues: anxiety; headaches; exasperation of skin eruptions such as eczema, acne, rashes, and psoriasis; depression; deep sadness; influenza; sore throats and colds; asthma and breathing difficulties; painful joints; anger; and fears.
This may be a good time to go see a homeopath. Homeopathy can help to ease the physical, emotional, and mental “blues” that the person is experiencing. Homeopathy is safe, effective and there are no side effects.
As a note about expectations, we often have thoughts or images of what we would like to happen in our life, regarding ourselves, our family, our relationships, our work, our hobbies, and the world. A suggestion, in addition to seeing a homeopath, is acceptance: to be accepting of one’s life, of one’s self, and the people in one’s life. Acceptance may help to ease those expectations we have, maybe just a little bit, and with that, there may be an easing of feelings of stress. We may feel a little lighter, and be able to enjoy and appreciate what we do have.
Wishing you all a happy and healthy holiday season.
