Are you ready for Thanksgiving or even Friendsgiving?

There are a lot of stresses that pile up when you’re getting ready to host or even just going to someone’s home for the holiday.  There is the pressure to have a good meal, to have interesting chats, to have some form of entertainment, whether that’s the big game or a board game.

You might have different ideas on politics or vaccines from your relatives, but you are all there to enjoy each other’s company and celebrate this one day when you get together.

Do you get anxious when you think about Thanksgiving?

I know I get stressed out just thinking about attempting to make the turkey, for some reason it never cooks as fast as I want it to…

But there are ways to ease the stresses of the holiday with these simple techniques.

Understand that Everyone Feels Anxious.

It’s good to acknowledge that everyone there at Thanksgiving feels anxious or stressed in some form, from not knowing what to wear, to trying to cook the “perfect green beans,” or “prize winning mash potatoes.”  Or they’re nervous to see relatives they haven’t talk to in a while, or even to be around others, since we’ve been in a pandemic couple of years.

Know that everyone is probably feeling like you and that’s ok.

Acknowledge the awkward during Thanksgiving.

Acknowledge the Awkward.

When you speak it out, it can become a joke!  Say what a crazy year it has been, talk about all the strange projects you’ve taken on, and all the terrible tv you’ve binged.

Also you can tell them that you’re not used to talking with actual humans!  I’ve said this to multiple new friends I’ve met since the pandemic and it actually helped us grow closer because I just said what they were all thinking!

Take a Deep Breathe.

If chatting with the inlaws or something starts to burn, take a deep breathe and realize that at least you are all together.  When else do you get this opportunity?

It isn’t about food, it’s about finding gratitude for the little things in life, that’s why it’s called “Thanks-giving.”

Realize that everyone is anxious at the Thanksgiving table.

Realize What You Can Control.

You can’t control the crazy relatives, you can’t control if dinner isn’t the best ever, you can’t control how others feel around you, but you can control how you feel.  You can take in your feelings and acknowledge them.

If you need some extra help try Jubilance at the Thanksgiving dinner table.
