Maybe you have a huge family that comes together during holidays. They continually argue and bicker about nothing. You may also be a couple that is trapped in an argumentative cycle where you are arguing about one thing or another. If you have a great family that is well-behaved and treat others with respect, you can have a nice holiday.
The truth is that your family is just like any other during the holiday period. They may be falling into a regimen of bickering and releasing painful memories. Whatever the situation, the following are some tips to follow:
Take a mini-vacation
You can decide to take a mini-vacation rather than spending the holiday’s time with the family. In this way, you can avoid a lot of mess. This will give you an opportunity to switch off your mind as you bask in the wonderful sunshine. It is not a must you go with your partner. Unresolved past issues and stress are some of the causes of upsets during holidays. Unfortunately, during the holidays, it is not the right time to air your issues and grievances.
Stay at home
Just put off your phone and stay at home watching television. You can avoid going out at all costs. It is advisable to plan your viewing options to have a head start. After the holiday time is over, get out and enjoy. This will be the right time because all thoughts of milestones, tantrums, and turkey will be a memory of the past.
Get to your home on time with several gifts. Whatever you are given eat it without complaining that it is greasy or cold or it is not enough. You should be polite and courteous. Try to avoid conflict at all costs.
Call your family with fake news about suffering from flu. Tell them you will be visiting the doctor. Also, you should stay off social network sites. This will ensure you avoid posting updates.
Book a hotel
You can decide to book a weekend spa treatment. However, you should do this on a last-minute. The warm massage you were dreaming, you can get it now.
In any case, ensure you have a wonderful time whether alone or with your loved ones.
