Seasonal Support

As we’re in the midst of this holiday season we thought it might serve as a valuable reminder to remember to reach out to friends and colleagues who might be struggling during this time of year. While many of us find this season to be full of joy, it can be a time of difficulty for many.

Some who have experienced recent (or not so recent) losses, may find this time of year to be a painful reminder of changes in their lives. While the immediate crisis of grief and loss may have passed, and with it, the direct and active support of others, the need for friendship, companionship and gestures of concern remain—perhaps even more necessary than before.

Others find this time of year to be difficult on a yearly basis: lack of daylight, increased social gatherings, fewer opportunities for exercise and other seasonal challenges. Sensitivity to others who may not be experiencing the mood shared by those around them will go a long way in maintaining a supportive community.

Whether or not you are fortunate to work in an environment where colleagues genuinely care about the welfare of each other, please feel empowered to reach out to each other during this season: invite others to join activities, ask to be included if you so desire, and most importantly, listen to each other as we find ourselves clustered in opportunities to share.
