Happy Holidays from River Pines Counseling!
Here are a few of our tips for best mental health over this holiday season:
- Focus on small moments of beauty.
A bright smile exchange, a hug, snowy pine trees, meadow deer, a card from an old friend, that first bite of a favorite holiday food, giggles on a snow sled, cinnamon candles, a crackling fireplace.
- Enjoy life from all 5 senses.
What can you notice when you pay attention to the detailed experience of your seeing, hearing, touching, tasting, and smelling senses?
- Have some adventure.
Find a new hiking trail, make a snow angel, drive to see holiday lights, try a new recipe.
- Surround yourself with people that bring out the best in you.
- Expect less of yourself and others; appreciate more.

All Best Wishes!
