How To Celebrate The Holidays If You’re Spending Them Alone
Practicing gratitude is a common Thanksgiving ritual for many families. Instead of missing out on the tradition, organize a family video chat. Keep it simple and ask everyone to share something or someone they’re grateful for. If you want to go deeper, engage in a gratitude meditation with the family.
Whatever the method, spending time (even virtually) with loved ones and recounting everything you’re grateful for can be grounding.
Likewise, you can create similar virtual versions of any holiday ritual you usually do with loved ones, from opening presents together (or a post-unwrapping show-and-tell?) to lighting candles and saying prayers over Zoom.
