Carving Out Me Time During Holiday Season

Most people use the term “holiday season” in reference to December—with Christmas shopping, family get-togethers, work parties, and New Year’s. For me, it begins much earlier. October breaks me out of my comfort zone by thrusting me into the crowded spaces of Comic-Con, Halloween, Diwali, and Bandi-Chhor Diwas. Then, there’s just a little recovery time before Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s.

Why I love being alone for the holidays

My pattern of spending the holidays alone started during college. I went to school in Boston, but my entire family was back in Seattle. It was too expensive to fly home for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I’d usually stay on campus during Thanksgiving. The first year I accepted a friend’s invitation to go home with her to New Jersey. It was awkward. I tagged along to her high school friends’ houses, attended church with her family and sat at the table making small talk with people I’d never met before and wouldn’t meet again. Everyone was nice, but when a group of girls are laughing about that time at Homecoming when so-and-so’s dress ripped it’s hard not to feel like a third wheel.

7 Yoga Poses You Can Do at Your Work Desk to Relieve Stress

While the 60 to 90 minutes you spend on your yoga mat a few days a week certainly helps, it is no match for the chronic stress and tension you place on your body during the rest of the day in your desk job.
