The holidays can be tricky to navigate for introverts. Christmas comes with A LOT of expectations and obligations that can quickly drain our energy and leave us feeling like Grumpy Cat. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
You can make the holidays into whatever you want them to be. This might mean saying ‘no’ to some invitations. Or saying ‘yes’, but sneaking off for some much needed alone time midway through. Your perfect holiday might involve a good book and lots of naps. Or it could be bursting at the seams with love and cuddles from the people you care most about.
Whatever your ideal introverted Christmas looks like, don’t feel guilty about it. There’s no right way to enjoy your holidays! Here is my personal recipe for introverted Christmas bliss. Feel free to share yours in the comments below.
