End-of-year holidays can be a celebratory time.
Or a stressful time.
Whichever is true for you, it can be a good time to add or tune-up some of the tools in your mental-health toolkit.
This episode focuses on mindfulness and self-compassion —
two readily accessible tools that can help us regulate and cope with difficult emotions.
And when the holidays pass, these valuable gifts to ourselves will still be available to us
as part of our self-care and depression-management arsenals.
