Its hard to believe christmas is here again (dosent time fly when your having fun.Xmas will be noisy in our house with a guitar and a set of drums(above all things) on the way from santa so I think that when dinner is over I might just develop a splitting headache and head to bed no seriously they can bang away to their hearts content and I will stand back shut up and keep my hair on.I hope you have a happy and peaceful and more importantly a healthy xmas.

Well, I am here again on my travels and trawls through the WWW. Am wondering how people get through Christmas. I read a great few lines last night from a lady called Brigid Duffield www.brigidduffield.com - she is an American lawyer who specialises in conflict resolution, and these are SO filled with good sense.

Tips to Help You Get Through The Holidays with Your Sanity Intact

1. SSS - Stand Back, Shut Up and Smile...Back by popular request, this is always number one on our conflict resolution tip lists.


2. Keep it Simple. Be realistic about your holiday commitments. If you are over extended, something will give...usually your temper. Know your party (and alcohol) tolerance. Have a party plan that works for you...RSVP to the ones you can enjoy and when possible, avoid the ones your won't. Arrive late, leave early, bow out when you are not enjoying yourself.


3. Avoid Unnecessary Conflicts. There will be conflicts, some necessary, some not. Put your energy into the necessary conflict. Avoid the small conflicts. Pick your battles and a conflict resolution method you can use when (not if) you get angry.


4. Schedule appointments with your trusted outside professional ...your therapist, your doctor, your financial planner, your spiritual advisor, your mediator, your lawyer. Be quick to see where these professionals will be of benefit.


5. Surround yourself with "trusted and safe" people. Have your "go to" person on speed dial for those times when your dukes go up and the biting words just keep spilling out of your mouth and you just can't stop yourself. [This being Ireland, hold on until the professionals are back at work, if your go to person is a health professional]


6. Share your experience, strength and hope. Find those who have similar life circumstances and may be struggling. Tell them in a general, caring way, about yours. It is a wonderful feeling when you see how your experience, good and bad, can benefit others.

[I LOVE No.6 - what a wonderful way this lady has of putting things. I will be pinning up SSS around the house - Christmas Day always ends up with someone upset. This year it won't be me on either side - causing or being upset!!]

[A happy Christmas to one and all] santa sunny Sleep study Wink
