Now that the semester is officially over, we're able to actually sit back and enjoy the holidays for a bit. For my family, that means cozying up with a dangerous amount of cookies and hot cocoa in our living room and turning on the projector to watch nothing but Christmas movies every night.

The holidays can be a rough time for many of us, who have been going through the COVID-19 pandemic. We have less of a chance to see our relatives in person and it may be unsafe to go watch the ball drop on New Year's Eve. However, there can still be ways to make sure this Christmas and New Year's is a happy and safe one. Especially for those of us who suffer from our mental health, we might need a bit of a push in order to make things work this year.

Although the holidays can be one of the happiest times of the year, it can also be one of the most stressful and even saddening times for people struggling with mental health. People who deal with mental health illnesses may feel the need for a break from the clutter that they find themselves in on a daily basis.

But to make things work a bit more smoothly this year, try trying one of these activities.
