From Shaman Lizzie:

Shaman Lizzie: psychic medium and energy healer.

Dear Friends, The holiday season is often portrayed as a time of joy, happiness, and togetherness. However, for many people, it can be a challenging time, especially if they are dealing with depression. The pressure to be festive and cheerful can feel overwhelming, and feelings of loneliness and sadness can intensify. If you find yourself struggling during this time, it’s important to remember that you are not alone and that there is help and support available to you.

Seeking Professional Help

One of the most important steps in coping with depression during the holiday season is reaching out for professional help. A qualified therapist or counselor can provide you with the guidance and support you need to navigate through this difficult time. They can help you develop coping strategies, explore the root causes of your depression, and provide a safe space for you to express your feelings.

Remember, seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness. It takes courage to reach out and ask for assistance, and doing so can make a world of difference in your mental well-being. Don’t hesitate to make an appointment with a mental health professional who can offer the support you need.

If you or someone you know is experiencing an immediate mental health crisis, please dial 911. Other resources include the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK(8255) “Lifeline assists people in immediate crisis with a skilled, trained crisis worker who will listen to the problems they are experiencing and will connect them to local mental health services. All calls are confidential and free.”

Stay Positive and Practice Self-Care

While it may be challenging, try to stay positive and focus on self-care during the holiday season. Take time for yourself and engage in activities that bring you joy and relaxation. Whether it’s reading a good book, going for a walk in nature, or indulging in a favorite hobby, make sure to prioritize self-care. Remember, taking care of yourself is not selfish; it’s necessary for your overall well-being.

Additionally, try to reframe your mindset and focus on the things you are grateful for. Gratitude can be a powerful tool in shifting your perspective and finding moments of joy, even in the midst of depression. Keep a gratitude journal or make a list of things you appreciate each day. Small acts of kindness, moments of connection, or even a beautiful sunset can remind you that there is still beauty and goodness in the world.

You Are Not Alone

It’s important to remember that you are not alone in your struggles. Many people experience depression during the holiday season, and reaching out to others who understand can provide a sense of comfort and support. Consider joining a support group or connecting with others who are going through similar experiences. Sharing your feelings and experiences with others who can relate can help alleviate feelings of isolation and provide a sense of belonging.

Connecting with Deceased Loved Ones

For some individuals, the holiday season can be particularly difficult because they are missing loved ones who have passed away. While it may not be possible to have them physically present, many people find comfort in the belief that their loved ones are still around them in spirit. If you are open to the idea, consider seeking the assistance of a psychic medium.

A psychic medium can help facilitate communication between you and your deceased loved ones, providing comfort, clarity, and a sense of connection. They can offer messages of love, support, and guidance, helping you feel closer to your loved ones during this challenging time. If you are interested in exploring this option, make sure to do your research and find a reputable psychic medium who aligns with your beliefs and values.

Find Joy and Happiness in Small Moments

While depression may make it difficult to experience joy and happiness, it’s important to remember that even small moments of joy can have a significant impact on your well-being. Look for simple pleasures in your everyday life, whether it’s savoring a delicious meal, listening to your favorite music, or spending time with a beloved pet. These moments may seem small, but they can bring a sense of joy and remind you that happiness is still possible, even during difficult times.

Remember, coping with depression during the holiday season is a journey, and it’s okay to have both good and bad days. Be gentle with yourself, practice self-compassion, and reach out for support when you need it. With the right help and a positive mindset, you can navigate through this challenging time and find moments of hope, support, and joy.
