H-Factor Where Is Your Heart


By Lisa Cypers Kamen, Harvesting Happiness
December is a month for celebrating a season of joy, giving, and family, as well as other things. How do you cope? How do you find peace and happiness when the very things the season represents are not present in your life?  It’s a great time of the year for most, but there are those who struggle to find happiness during the last few months of the year. If you fall into this category, here are some ideas to help you enjoy the season.
One of the best ways to forget about the things that make you unhappy is to simply forget about yourself. You find some way for you to occupy your mind and thoughts toward something that will bring your life happiness, a sense of joy. A great way to do this is through service, volunteering your time to help someone else. There are shelters where you can offer your time and talents to make life easier for those who are not as fortunate as you. Try to do something daily for someone else, and you will certainly find happiness in the joy you bring them.

Relationships can cause turmoil, conflict or stress at any time, but tensions are often heightened during the holidays. Family misunderstandings and conflicts can intensify — especially if you’re pushed together for several days. Facing the holidays without a loved one can be tough and leave you feeling lonely and sad. One way to cope during this time of the year is to be aware of those things that trigger sadness or depression.
It has been said, there is no such thing as a Happy Hermit. We can intentionally choose to nurture a sense of community and family for ourselves through our friendships and connections that augment the missing pieces that Mother Nature gave us. Herein lies the creative opportunity.
