If going on social media triggers you to feel shame or like you’re not doing enough for your family, don’t get on it. Unfollow or mute the “supermoms” who make you feel bad about yourself. I’d contend that social media is the no. 1 destroyer of joy and it will be no different this holiday season.
Beth and Emily -- and a few friends -- discuss how they are handling (or not handling) the holidays this year. We also talk about an upcoming VIRTUAL EVENT happening on November 7 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.. It's Home for the Holidays :: A Virtual Moms Night In.
Home for the Holidays :: A Virtual Moms Night In happens on November 7, 2020 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. right in the Home for the Holidays event space on the Fort Worth Moms Facebook platform. Home for the Holidays will feature video classes, engagement opportunities, and GIVEAWAYS GALORE.
Here's a little taste of what we talk about: "Our disciplinary reasons and methods have shifted from 'let's change the behavior so that everyone is comfortable' to 'let's look at what we're doing and how it impacts the people around us.'"
So it's no wonder that most of us have used comfort foods to soothe uncomfortable emotions at some point. I mean, it works . . . temporarily. Personally I've eaten away sadness, anger, boredom, anxiety, you name it. And yeah, it helped me to escape my awareness of that feeling . . . temporarily.
As far as Grandparent's Day goes this year, my family is celebrating a little differently. We will continue to connect with my grandparents in ways that have worked for us during the pandemic. Not only have these ideas encouraged and helped pass the time for my grandparents, but also have helped my children.
