Happy weekend, everyone
I hope you all are safe and well. As we all are facing the reality of a Thanksgiving without members of our extended family, limiting our celebrations of gratitude to our household, we need to find little things to improve our spirits.
Here are a few ideas to help you cope with this abnormal holiday season:
1. Reach out to family virtually. If you have the ability to video chat, conference call or otherwise talk to your extended family members it will no doubt boost your spirits and theirs during these trying times.
2. Start a new tradition. Holidays during a pandemic can lead to some creative ideas about new ways to celebrate, new traditions like games and recipes. Give it a try, who knows what might catch on!
3. Plan an adventure. If you’re missing travel and visiting family elsewhere, planning a trip for 2021 can help fight the blues. During a pandemic, travel insurance is your friend, but otherwise have fun planning your next excursion!
As always, the top five articles from this week are below.
Enjoy your weekend,
