Three Week Journaling Program with
Jean Rowe (R9)

It’s beginning to look a lot like a different kind of holiday this year. On its own, the season can bring nostalgia (like a favorite song), connection to family and friends and an undercurrent of expectation. There can be an added layer of managing expectations to be positive and happy - especially during a massive life-disrupting pandemic whose expiration date remains a mystery. We may all be trying to appear to look “fine” when, inside, we are not.

Finding peace "from the turkey to the tinsel" is within reach!

Week 1: Adjusting expectations (45 minutes)

Craft an idea of how the holidays can be (vs. how it’s always been). “I can't gather in person with my parents, but I can still make my favorite holiday foods.” There may even be some positives to be grateful for. 

Week 2: Traditions and boundaries (45 minutes)

What is at the core of your most important holiday traditions? How can you still make them happen, even if it is different? i.e., I may not be able to trim the tree with my _____, but I can still trim the tree. We’ll also think through appropriate boundaries.

Week 3: Self-care (45 minutes)

Taking care of yourself is just as important as taking care of those around you. What tools can I use? It’s OK to ask for help.
