Coping with Holiday Grief

On BYU Radio’s The Lisa Show, Dr. Anton C. Bizzell offers his advice on coping with the holiday blues. The holidays can be one of the happiest seasons—but they can also be a difficult time for many, especially this year. While in years past we might have spent this time with family and friends and in religious observances, COVID-19 may keep us home, celebrating with only immediate family or alone. All of this can contribute to feelings of loneliness and sadness. The key, Dr. Bizzell says, is to identify your stressors and develop a toolbox of healthy coping strategies—everything from taking a walk to practicing meditation. It’s also appropriate to seek professional help.
