Declare a Safe Zone
You are going to need a safe place this holiday season, one without Christmas ornaments. You can call it your womb of sanity: a corner of your home that is protected from all insults, puzzling behavior, disappointing conversations, upsetting opinions, and triggers. It’s quiet and nice, and can be full of your favorite things: scripture passages, meditations, inspirational objects, photos, or anything that motivates you to act with love and integrity. Plan to hide out there for at least 10 minutes each day.
