Your Mental Health Guide To Surviving The Holidays

With bustling social calendars, end of the year projects nearing their deadlines, and upcoming holiday travel plans, this time of year is more hectic than ever. Stress levels are high, diets are poor, and it can seem like you are barely keeping up with life. All of this can increase anxiety, depression, and slowly chip away at your overall mental health.

 

Holiday depression and anxiety start before Thanksgiving, and the body doesn’t get a break until the New Year. Be it the increased financial burden for travel and shopping, or attending parties and hosting meals, the holidays are physically and mentally draining. Expectations are high for planning events and giving gifts, but there is also the loneliness aspect for those without a good support system or loved ones. If you are experiencing any mental health challenges during the holidays, don’t be afraid to reach out to people, express your feelings, or employ the following tips.

 

Stick To A Routine:

It is easy to over-extend yourself during the holidays. Making multiple commitments to different parties, due to the high influx of invitations, can be mentally taxing. This is why you need to stick to your routine, even if that means missing out on a few parties. The more you stick to your regular schedule, the more in control you’ll feel. If sticking to your routine keeps you from becoming anxious, miss that dinner you were invited to in order to maintain your schedule. Self-care is more important than anything.

 

Soak Up The Sun…When It Comes Out:

Some people are lucky and experience many sunny days during the winter, while others are plagued by rainy days, snowstorms, and lack of sunshine. According to numerous studies, depressive disorders increase exponentially during the winter months. This is attributed to the lack of sunshine. Whenever it is possible, take a walk outside and soak up so much needed vitamin D. The combination of being in the sun and nature has been proven to reduce stress, improve concentration, lower levels of inflammation, and improve overall energy.

 

Budget:

The materialistic nature of the holidays can drain your bank account, which in turn stresses you out. Rather than financially burdening yourself this year, set holiday budget limits to help you allocate funds for travel, food, gifts, and more. Write out exactly what you need to purchase to help yourself figure out expenses. If this is the year that you spend less on gifts, so be it. You can always make your own gifts to cut down the expense of gift giving, and you can spend a little more on a bigger meal with the family, focusing on love, thankfulness, and more during the holidays.

 

Don’t Rely On Drugs, Alcohol, Or Food:

When you are depressed or anxious, it can be easy to convince yourself to take a pill or knock back a few drinks to feel better or relieve tension. According to mental health experts, it is better to relieve stress and anxiety via healthier outlets like exercise, meditation, talking to a therapist, or spending time with loved ones. Don’t make yourself reliant on drugs, alcohol, or food to make it through the holidays. Give yourself time to decompress and collect yourself for better mental health.

 

Get Sufficient Sleep:

We cannot stress the importance of sleep enough, especially during the holidays. According to Psychology Today, sleep deprivation greatly affects your mood, slowly leading to an impaired mental state. When your sleep cycle is irregular and you aren’t sleeping at least seven hours every night, you run the risk of becoming physically and mentally drained.

 

Set Realistic Expectations:

With all the commotion of the holidays and the approaching New Year, people can often reflect on their accomplishments, or lack thereof, from the past year. Some may think that they aren’t where they are “supposed to be” in life, or that they didn’t do enough during the year. Get out of your own head and be grateful for what you did accomplish. Don’t set yourself up for failure in the coming year either. Adjust your expectations and goals to make them more realistic, for example, going to the gym three times per week, or reading a book within the first three months of the year.

 

Managing mental health can be a tricky path to navigate because it is always challenging. The important thing to remember is that you are not alone. Professional services are available and friends are the best support system to have. Approach 2020 with mindful practices that will help you remain healthy throughout the year.

    Q: My 14 year old cousin's mom has checked her into to mental hospital. This entire school year she has ben dealing with alot going into high school, and other teen age issues. Her birth father is not in the home but, her mom has a pretty good man, that steps up, and does a good job with her two children. However, she has been battling with her weight, although she wasn't over weight she didn't feel thin enough like the other children at her school. Her mom found Hydroxycut in her room, and all hair feel out. This past weekend went to her mom's boyfriend and told him she tried to overdose on pills to kill herself, because of all the pressure. Her mom had her in therapy behind the weightloss issue, she thought she was ok, until this last suicidal mission. Is there any help or advice you can render. I told her mom that the hospital thing was a horrible idea due to the medication that they will be administering and other brain washing methods they use to further F*** you up so that when you are release you a labeled, and sure to be crazy. D-Herbs at 14 this is insane, her mom has given up hope, and gave her chiild into the hands of the enemy. I am conscious and try to talk to her but it doesn't seem to work.

    A:

    That's an unfortunate situation. Have the mother read the information on Dherbs.com or schedule a consultation so she can speak with me live and direct. These are the only ways I know to help, Beloved. I'm also about to write an article on DEPRESSION, and the DANGERS OF ANTIDEPRESSANTS. Hang in there and know that your cousin wrote her own life script (before she was born), so she is gaining an experience so as to learn a life lesson for her soul's purpose. It doesn't make sense on a lower level, but on a higher level, it all will add up and make sense. God's hand is over everything, even those things that appear bad.

    Q: I recently completed the Full Body Detox, which I loved. Now, 2 months later, I am very interested in the weight release program. Last year, I lost 40 lbs in 8 months, in the most healthy way (good nutrition and exercise). This year, I slowly started gaining weight back, and 1 year later, I continue to gain weight much more quickly. I am still working out regularly, and eating well. Would you recommend the Weight Release Kit? I am looking to take off 20 lbs at the most. Is that realistic for this formula? However, I want to build muscle and strength as well. Can I maintain the results of the program with the directed nutrition plan, and add white meat for protein (chicken, turkey, tuna). I am also wondering if the formulas simply release excess weight, or can I expect to lose inches and lower my body fat percentage? Thanks for your time and dedication to natural health!

    A:

    Glad to hear about your success with the Full Body Detox!

    I would highly recommend the Weight Release Kit and Regimen. NO MEAT though! Try vegan alternatives if you must have something - but no meats!

    You will release weight (waste)! Your weight is nothing but waste!

    Q: I'm a 38-year-old male who has been suffering with Atrial Fibrillation for 3 years. Up until the age of 35 I never had any real illness that had any caused for concern, and then out of the blue I have a heart related issue. My Doctor has never given me a cause of where this came from and all the research I've done on my own turns up the same. The answers the doctor gave (caffeine, alcohol, and so on) I've never really used any of those things excessively. My eating habits up until that time where not that great and I was about 100lbs over weight. I've lost 85lbs since, and also have giving up all meats. Also I had Cath. Ablation surgery for the A-Fib. It's been 3 months since surgery and I'm now off of the Coumadin they had me taking. I'm not sure if the surgery was a total success, I've not had an attack since New Year’s Day 2008. But I'm still not feeling back to my old self. I've been having some very weird feelings of nausea, tension, constipation, and tiredness, headaches, etc. When I do go to the doctor they tell me that everything looks fine and that I may be a bit stressed and suffering from anxiety. I'm writing to you in hopes that you may be able to guide me to the right path to healing and returning to living somewhat normal life again.

    A:

    WITHOUT A QUESTION THE BEST PLACE FOR YOU TO BEGIN YOUR NATURAL HEALING JOURNEY IS WITH THE Full Body Detox. AND BECAUSE YOU TOOK THE DANGEROUS “COUMADINâ€, YOU REALLY NEED TO CLEANSE YOUR BODY OUT. THIS CLEANSE WILL HELP YOUR HEART TO RECOVER AS WELL.

    Q: I hope all is well! I am writing this note to request a consultation with Djehuti . I can only imagine how busy you are, so I will be brief. But, feel free to let me know if you'd like more detailed information. I am contacting you regarding seeking treatment for severe clinical Depression. In addition I suffer from a severe lack of energy. I'd also like to treat several nutritional deficiencies. I am 35 years old. I have been suffering from Clinical Depression since I was about 16 years old. I began to address my Depression only about 3-4 years ago. Since that time I have struggled off and on with counseling with a Social Worker, psychotherapy with a Psychiatrist, group therapy with a Psychologist, several medications, outpatient hospitalization, CBT therapy, and natural and alternative treatments such as herbs, minerals, vitamins, yoga, exercise, meditation, fasting, and cleansing. But nothing has had any long term benefits. My Depression has become increasingly more severe. Over the past 1.5 years, my Depression has been at its worse. About a year ago, I lost my job due to the Depression. I then went into a major depressive episode that has lasted well over a year. I'd like to ask you for some direction in treating my Depression, lack of energy, etc. If you have some time, I'd love to do a consultation with you. Any help that you can offer will be greatly appreciated. I am interested in doing an intense 3-month fast and detox cleanse. I would really like to do a cleanse and detoxification to completely heal my body and get rid of the toxins, impurities, mucus, etc. Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you.

    A:

    Have you schedule a consultation yet? Drugs won't help you. The root cause is emotional and spiritual. Dherbs.com can help you! I'll have an article up on depression by December 1, 2008. Stay tuned to Dherbs.com!

    Q: Can you tell me what to give my 5 year old twins daughters and 3 year old son to help support their immune system? I don't immunize them, but want to make sure that their resistance is built up. Thanks so much and continued success. I did not know that you were so funny!!! Thank you for your words, Beloved! Much obliged! Greatly!

    A:

    I would say to put your children on the RAINFOREST TONIC TEA, letting them drink one cup per day. The VITAMIN C FORMULA is something I would also suggest for your children's immune system as well. Peace and Love! I appreciate you very much, Beloved!

    Q: I am a 42-year-old female and in the last year I've been diagnosed with many types of environmental and food allergies (corn, soy, peanuts, green peas, and yeast) additionally a HIDA scan showed that my gallbladder is not functioning properly (no gallstones) but only dumping 12%. Could there be a link between gallbladder and food allergies? Could you recommend another option, other than surgery? I exercise 3 - 4 times a week and have a fairly decent diet; but over the past year I've gained aprox 30 pounds. Things are not quite adding up; only the pounds. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    A:

    SURGERY, BECAUSE YOUR GALLBLADDER IS DEFECTIVE? DOCTORS ARE INSANE! YOU SIMPLY REJUVENATE THE ORGAN AND THE ORGAN FUNCTIONS TO PAR AGAIN. AND YOU REJUVENATE THE ORGAN OR THE ENTIRE BODY WITH FOOD THAT NOURISH, PROVIDE ENERGY, AND CAUSE GROWTH, REPAIR, AND MAINTENANCE FOR SUSTAINING LIFE. WE CALL THIS "HERBACEUTICAL" AND THAT'S WHAT WE SELL. BELOVED, SURGERY IS TO GET MONEY FROM INSURANCE AT THE EXPENSE OF YOUR TEMPLE (OF GOD). IT IS UNNECESSARY. BELOVED, I HUMBLY SUGGEST YOU PERFORM OUR FULL BODY DETOX AND FOLLOW THE KIT UP WITH A DAILY MAINTENANCE OF OUR LIVER AND GALLBLADDER FORMULA (3 CAPSULES DAILY) AND LIVER EXTRACT (1-2 DROPPERFULS IN WATER DAILY) AND YOU WILL NOTICE A DIFFERENCE. YOU SHOULD ALSO START DRINKING DANDELION ROOT TEA AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. AFTER YOU GET YOUR RESULTS WE ONLY ASK THAT YOU FILL OUT OUR AFFIDAVIT OF HEALING SO THAT WE MAY PROVE TO GOVERNMENT THAT PEOPLE ARE HEALING THEMSELVES WITH GOD'S PLANTS. THE GOVERNMENT IS PLANNING TO CRACK DOWN ON NATURAL HEALING BECAUSE TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE WAKING UP AND THE DRUG INDUSTRY IS LOSING A LOT OF MONEY. THE PEOPLE MUST NOW SPEAK AND RECLAIM THEIR SOVEREIGNTY.

    Q: I found out about your website and that you offer different treatments to improve other people's health. My question is that I have a relative, my aunt to be more specific; she suffers from a bipolar disorder which is getting worse and does not improve with any kind of drug. She is getting hospitalized in a mental hospital by tomorrow morning and I do not feel too comfortable with this situation therefore I wanted to ask you about any treatment that you might offer for this type of disorder. I really do not think that hospitalizing her in a mental hospital will do the work, if you could please write back to me by tomorrow. She has tried Reconnective Healing and it seems to help her relax but it does not take the symptoms away.

    A:

    I would recommend that your aunt give our Nerves Formula, Central Nervous System Formula, and Brain Booster Formula and Elixir #6 and Elixer #7 a try for bipolar.

    Q: My daughter is now 6 years old and at the age of 1 was diagnosed with asthma. She was on albuterol and predisone for 4 years off and on and only taking the medicine when her asthma flared up. While she was on this medicine I noticed that she had lack of an appetite. I started giving her organic milk and keeping her tightly clothed in the winter and by the time she was 4.5 years I got it under control that she didn't have an attack for a year. During that year I noticed that she eats. She constantly wants to eat, and her stomach is getting bigger even though she is highly active. I'm pretty sure the medicine had something to do with this. She recently had a slight attack 3 months ago, and I've been looking all over the place for something natural to give her when she does have asthma attacks instead of giving her that medicine which is poisoning her system. If I gave her a Children's Detox would this help with the bloating of her stomach? What can I give her that is natural and effective to help with the asthma should it occur again?

    A:

    Let the child perform the Children's Detox. Give her pear juice, plum juice, and prune juice periodically. The child sounds constipated. If the stomach is bloated and growing, clearly the child is backed up. Feed the child more fruits and vegetables (as they are loaded with enzymes which help with bowel movements).

    The asthma can be knocked out with the herbs Mullein leaf, Eucalyptus, Lobelia, and Wild Cherry Bark. Give them to the child in tea form. Alternate the teas, switching them up, making sure she drinks all of them. Mullein leaf by far is the best. Asthma is nothing but a mucus condition. Rub essential oil of Eucalyptus on the child's chest before bedtime. First rub on some olive oil, and then apply the essential oil of Eucalyptus. We have a great Respiratory inhaler made with the best essential oils for lung conditions such as asthma.

    Q: I'm a 28 year old male with big dreams and high aspirations. However, I've been dealing with issues of sustained motivation, and fear for the past 10 years. As a result my life has suffered socially, and financially. I see many people around me getting ahead, but I seem to be trailing behind at every step. The hardest task I think I deal with is keeping my life in balance, and staying focused with all I desire to do. I've struggled with changing my beliefs about myself and reprogramming my mind for success for a long time.

    A:

    You have some inner blocks that are holding you back. The problems are recorded in your chakras and thus you should have chakra work performed by a qualified (doesn't mean "certified"), and trusted energy healer. Instead of focusing on keeping your life in balance, focus on what you desire to do only. I really suggest that you read my e-book manuals: "The Money, Wealth, and Prosperity Manual", "The Mental Science Manual", and the new "Discovering Your Life's Higher Purpose" (highly recommended). I can totally relate to what you're saying and experiencing! You're just blocked! You may have some vital information stored in your natal chart as well. You need an inner diagnosis performed. If you order all the tools named above, I will give you the consultation for free so we can nail down the location(s) of the inner blockages. You very well may be blocked at the First, and Third chakras. Fear is stored in the First chakra, just to let you know. You can be helped, Beloved! Stay positive, and focus on your desires. Like I state in the "Mental Science Manual", play in your mind! Live in it and miraculously the things stored in the mind, and constantly played out will manifest.

    Q: After the laser surgery last year, I have been taking the Eye Formula for high pressure 4 months now. I take 8 tablets a day and I use the an MSM Eye Drops and my pressure drops and my eyes feel very healthy. The doctor told me come back in a year, but about a week ago I started to feel pain in my eyes sometimes sharp sometimes less but all the time. Please advise.

    A:

    Double up on your eye regimen! Eat more blueberries. Take extra capsules of Eye Formula, etc. It would be a good idea for you to perform the Eye Kit. The Eye Kit includes six distinct formulas that are created with the intention of helping your body maintain, restore, and fend off any pending eye issues. These formulas not only are meant to help nourish, repair, and strengthen the eyes, but they also are meant to help maintain a healthy circulation throughout the body.

    Q: I'm a 31 year old woman dating a 60 year old man. We live together and he helps raise my 2 year old only child. I'm a scorpio and he's a pisces. Can you tell me what you think about this relationship? My dob is 11/08/79, and his is 02/26/51, my life path # is 9.

    A:

    We are not Astrologist. It sounds like you have an arrangement that is working for you. If you have a specific problem, or relationship question we would love to help. I will say you're both water signs, which could create an emotional relationship. Life path number is a teacher and old soul.

    Q: My question however, is about my son. I have an 11 year old who has been diagnosed with high-functioning autism. He has problems staying focused. Health-wise he often suffers from respiratory issues. He breathes heavy, is constantly congested, and snores. My son has been on Risperdal for about 6 months for his autism symptoms. This medication has caused my son to gain over 40 pounds within an 8 month period of time. I really want to wean my child off of this drug, obviously because of the potential harm it will do to his overall health. We have a family history of diabetes and this worries me. My son is also very sluggish and has a problem with constipation. The doctor once did an x-ray and said he was very "backed up". She prescribed a laxative, but this did not work. Can you tell me what you would recommend?

    A:

    At some point you will really have to decide to go drugless in helping your son as drugs don't heal anything that God created. That drug he's taking that made him gain 40 pounds sounds like a steroid (which usually adds weight on to the body). I would recommend that the child performs the CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) to cleanse his body and then begin consuming our teas (i.e. BRAIN TUNER), KHEMETIAN GOLD, and Crystal Elixirs to help with his ADD. Our ADD tonic will be out in late November or early December 2008. Why worry about diabetes when he does not have it at present? You are thinking the worst into existence with your thoughts. What you fear will appear! Think positive and thus attract only positive in your life.

    Q: My co-worker has a 1 year old grand-daughter, who they recentlly found has 3 kidneys. This was discovered because she has constant fevers, and was not able to hold down any foods. The hospital she is currently taking the child to, has not assisted with any part of the child getting better. They seem to be giving her the run around. For example, scheduling appointments then cancelling etc. My co-workers seems to think, they are not getting fare treatment. Due to the fact her grand-daughter is receiving medicaid (government assisted health care). She says that they keep prescribing tylenol for the fever, and now the little girl may have a bladder infection. She has been, giving the 1 year old daily doses of tylenol for a few months now. I think that this should be stopped. Your knowledge is greatly appreciated.

    A:

    By all means, that child needs to perform the Children's Detox to undo all the harm the poor child has suffered.

    Q: Hello, I enjoyed reading the information on your website. I have many questions, but my concern is that I am 43 year old African- American female, who would be classified as obese. Last year I had a miscarriage, which was devastating to me though we were not trying to get pregnant. I have a 16 year old healthy son. The doctor wanted me to have a hysterectomy because of my age and reported that I had non-cancerous fibroids. I chose not to as if I have the opportunity to get pregnant again, I would like to carry my baby to full term and deliver another healthy baby. My question is: which would you suggest I do first (as we know, time is a factor)? Should I do the full body detox and then the weight cleanse? I don't want to do the fertility program, but I'm not sure exactly why I lost my baby. I know stress played a major factor (I quit that high-stress job I was on) and after reading your website, realized that weight played a much larger role than I wanted to realize. I'm not trying to actively get pregnant, but because it remains a possibility, I would like to be as healthy as possible. My partner and I broke up shortly after the miscarriage, but have recently recommitted to a relationship again after almost a year apart. I am sorry for this long email, but your opinion would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely

    A:

    First perform the FULL BODY DETOXfirst followed by the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN.

    Q: I recommend this site to all because it has helped me in so many ways, that I was hoping it may be of help to my 11 year old niece. She is really shy towards others, even at school. To the point where last year, it started affecting her school work. Because, at school you have to interact with others, as well as participate in class. At home with family she's active, sociable, and lot's of fun. When she gets around others she shuts down, believe it or not. I was talking with her mother, my sister and she realized that we was that same way aswell growing up. I don't want her to go through life like that, if there is a way to help her. My sister mentioned pills. Since I have found your site there is no way that I'll have her popping man made pills, when there are herbs that are safe. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I know they have tea I saw for adults (Stress/Anxiety), but for kids I wasn't sure. I need something that will definately work. Thanks for all you do, and look forward to hearing from you.

    A:

    It's probably just a personality thing. However, it's not a sickness. It's more astrological, and personal essence than anything. I would suggest that the child have its natal chart and numerology chart done. Everything about the child is written "In the Wheel."

    A:

    Calcium deficiency is corrected with calcium SUFFICIENCY so take plenty of CALCIUM FORMULA. For after eating problems, I recommend SEN FEN FORMULA, DIGEST AID, and AFTER-DINNER TEA!

    Q: I know your very busy, but I would be very appreciative if you could help me in any way that you can. I'm 22 with a 7 month old baby, with no support from my family. Over the last 3 months the father decided that he doesn't love me anymore, and has done an obscene about of things to disrespect me. Which leaves me hurt, and stressed out! I'm mentally, spiritually, and physically drained. I have no peace of mind, and I tend to fall in and out of depression. I feel like I'm going to breakdown, and the tears just won't stop falling. I'm trying to keep it together for my baby. Internally, I've been hurt so bad, I just feel like giving up. How can you love someone one minute, and the next not care for them at all? How do I deal with her father? I'm so tired of being the bigger person, and trying to work through things. He just doesn't care at all, and he makes no effort to even try. He then turns around and says, "He cares about his daughter". I try to explain to him that our relationship affects her, but he always has an answer for everything. I don't mean to dampen you with my problems, but I would appreciate it if you could not only hear me, but feel me and what I'm going through. Every little bit helps

    A:

    Greetings, Beloved! You are upset because you expect something and expectation is your problem. You are expecting something beyond your control, expecting something coming from another person you can't control. Just do you and let karma take care of this dude. You just can't up and not love someone anymore. He's either saying that so as to bounce from the scene (leave) and his responsibilities or he never loved you in the first place and perhaps used you for his own purposes of sexual gratification and you ended up getting pregnant. At either rate, just do you and focus on you - what you desire for you and your child. Think positive! Let go of the situation involving this dude. Start on it TODAY! The dude is selfish and creating karma! Release him! You can't make a person do something that is not in them to do.

    Q: My two year-old son is not circumcised and his foreskin is not pulling back is there anything I can do to get his skin to stretch without getting him circumcised because I really don't want to do that. And are there any bath remedies to keeping it clean, right now I give him sea salt baths and thinking about using hydrogen peroxide. Also, It keeps getting red and swollen I gave him antibiotics because it hurts when he urinates. If you could, could you possibly recommend something I could get from a health food store I can't afford to cleanse his body right now.

    A:

    Don't act too fast; sometimes it takes a while before the skin begins to become elastic. The child is only 2. You can clean his foreskin with warm water, sea salt, and tea tree oil (5-8 drops in the bowl of water or bath water) and you can add 1 ounce of hydrogen peroxide if you like. If the skin is red and swollen it's inflamed. Start applying Dherbs.Com HEALING SKIN OIL and this should facilitate healing. Antibiotics are harming the child. He doesn't need antibiotics! Please read our article on "DANGERS OF ANTI-BIOTICS". He'll be alright!

    Q: Its been a couple of months, but I got around to ordering the Mental Science Manual, and some Activated Carbon. However I have a question and I figured you would be the best person to ask. I wanted to learn more about different herbs and what they do. I plan on going to the library and just getting a book on herbs, but before I did, I just wanted to see if you had a book you could recommend. Maybe that could be a future ebook (I would order it too).

    A:

    Great books that explain the function and properties of herbs include: The Herb Bible by John Lust, The Natural Pharmacy, and The Way of Herbs to name a few. There are hundreds of books on herbs. Just keep searching and you will find all that you desire to find.
