The holiday season usually comes with a somber mood, especially for those who feel isolated. These feelings of sadness may be amplified this year, given that many people will be far from family and friends.

Many of us find ourselves in need of a pick me up or way to get through the day. In light of this gloomy perspective, we've found ten things that could help you lift your mood this festive season.

Asking for help may not come quickly, especially since it seems that everyone feels a bit low right now. However, reaching out will be a good release, and it will reveal that you aren't alone in your struggles.

it's not always easy to verbalize our feelings to someone else, so writing them down may be better. Journaling is a great way to express yourself, and it's always lovely to look back at what you've overcome.

Cry It Out

Allowing yourself to grieve your emotions or situations is amongst the added benefits of crying. Letting go of pent-up emotions releases toxins from your body and can provide relief like no other.

There's nothing a steaming bowl of macaroni and cheese can't fix for me. For others, it may be a hearty chili, and others prefer warm cookies. There's no harm in a little indulgence to put a smile on your face.
