We've all been pressured by this Covid-19 situation, I, myself have been feeling anxious the past few months because I still worry for my Dad that is vulnerable to this virus even though he's doing well in isolation with Mom.

So I guess, with all that's happening around lately, as probably some of you has been feeling the same way with the current news in your area, what would be the best gift you can give to yourself this Christmas as a reward for surviving this nightmare? I'd love to hear some of your tips. Thank you.

Btw, I'm planning to buy myself a few Mandalorian figurines this Christmas to add to my collections. :D

I really do not know the best thing to give oneself. My parental units are also vulnerable but luckily so far not in isolation. If you can get something to the people taking care of your parents and/or do something for those caring for your parents that would be very nice and appreciated. What brings me joy is helping another person, making another person's day better thru laughter/helpfulness/sharing joyfulness, giving of my skills and talents to another person. Continue to let your parents know you love them, maybe send them a handmade hug coupon, maybe a personalized card, maybe send them a caring note. Bb, F#, Ab, and G are some of my favorite notes...lol. This year I must have given over 25 hand-painted plaster figures/ornaments to friends and family. Usually every year at this time I hand paint about 8 plaster figures/ornaments. We all need to receive more kindness and joy this year.

Also suggesting to do joyful things that help keep your spirits and good feelings up. Music for me does calm this savage beast. Indulge in foods you like and/or give comfort, but suggest not overdo this. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing.

I really do not have an answer. A person's source of joy/happiness is personal. All someone can do is suggest. Best of luck! These are my suggestions and humble opinions.

Thank you for your suggestions scarflikeness ! A friend suggested that I should listen to delta waves on youtube and that it will ease my mind. Somehow it worked! Also, my Mom asked me to do facetime with them on Christmas eve, and I had fun! I've prepared enough food for Christmas and with a bottle of wine, I've enjoyed celebrating my Christmas on facetime with my parents and some relatives! :D
Btw, I've stumbled upon looking for some ways to cope with this anxiety and I hope that anyone who reads this will find some good advice too as I have. Merry Christmas to you and to everyone!

Thanks. How are you doing now? It's almost the end of the year, I hope you can celebrate with your family again even just in face time on this important day! :)

Hi! I chose to celebrate New Year at work so I stayed overnight while I facetimed with my parents the whole night while I welcomed the New Year with workmates. We celebrated the New Year there with some food and wine as we were allowed to have a 2 hours break at work while we welcome the New Year. How about you? I hope you also had a great New Year with your family or friends.
