Tips for being present, not perfect this holiday season

Holiday Tips
Through your gift, you contribute to our mission to unlock and nurture human potential in people living with emotional, behavioral or cognitive differences.

The holidays are a time of celebration, filled with family gatherings, gift giving and good cheer, but for many people, they also are a time of stress and seemingly never-ending to-do lists.

Devereux Center for Resilient Children Early Childhood Specialist and National Trainer Nefertiti B. Poyner, Ed.D., offers tips for families to slow down and enjoy the holiday season by focusing on being present, not perfect.

“The only person you should be trying to be is the person you see in the mirror every day,” said Poyner.

According to a survey by the American Psychological Association, 38 percent of people said their stress level increases during the holidays. Devereux Center for Resilient Children Early Childhood Specialist and National Trainer Nefertiti B. Poyner, Ed.D., suggests one way to relieve holiday stress is to ask a family member or friend to lend a helping hand.
