Chelli Pumphrey. The holidays can be a time of loneliness and stress for many of us. If you find yourself struggling with your single status over the holidays, shifting your mindset can help you cope. Who knows, you might find a reason why being single during the holidays is actually the best!

Here are a few ideas to boost your spirits through the holidays. It is important to learn how to be self-ish, in the healthy, self-care kind of way. When you learn how to care for yourself , you develop the wholeness that helps you thrive in a healthy relationship. Find ways to do things that make you happy, both big and small. Buy yourself some gifts, wrap them up, and then unwrap them on the big day. Be indulgent. Be silly. Be kind to yourself. While I think we can all agree that the meaning of the holidays is not about gifts, this can be a fun act of self-love and playfulness that can help uplift your spirits.

You can do what makes you happy. Or maybe you ditch the family even if you really love to be with them, but you need to be self-ish more than you need to be home! You can create a new tradition for yourself. You may not be single forever, so you can take advantage of this time to do whatever your heart desires, with no one else to please.

You may even have more fun alone. If you feel self-conscious, try setting an intention to go to parties with an openness to be social, courageous, and confident. Own your single status. And who knows who you might meet! During the winter months, it is a time when our bodies and our spirits retreat and slow down.

In a sense, we hibernate. Hibernation means your body may not have the energy to fight. Find ways to nourish yourself. Let the holidays be a time of regeneration, healing, and quiet. Remember that just as the seasons change, so do our relationships, our emotions, and our situations. Nothing remains the same forever. Lean in to your feelings and trust that they will pass. You can always choose a different story about your situation, and create the holidays that you want. If your story is one of lack, loneliness, or heartbreak, chances are, it will be a holiday season that reflects those feelings for you.

You could focus instead on freedom, self-love , and acceptance of this temporary season of your life. This shift can be a powerful tonic to boost your mood, and keep your mindset positive during the holidays.

Check out all the marvelous ways your single status is a holiday perk. You can be self-ish. You can embrace freedom. You can be your own date. You can surrender.
