As silver bells start to jingle, we search for what it means to feel ‘home for the holidays’. Top writers like Briana Wiest and Shahida Arabi lend insight on curating peace and fostering connection throughout all winter festivities. Whether you’re celebrating alone or surrounded by loved ones, we have self-care kits, gift guides, viral words, and more to make this holiday season full of warm solace.

“Coming Home To Yourself” is a theme that resonates deeply within our pages this month. Brianna Wiest starts us off with “Self-Care Activities That Will Actually Help Make Your Life Better,” offering practical ways to nurture your well-being amidst life’s hustle. Kovie Biakolo follows suit with “Nine Things To Remember If You Feel Sad, Anxious, Or Lonely During The Holidays,” providing invaluable guidance during potentially challenging times.

Shahida Arabi sheds light on “The Dark Side Of Being An Empath,” delving into the powerful yet often misunderstood experiences of highly sensitive individuals. Meanwhile, “Being Home Means Being With You” celebrates connections, featuring January Nelson’s “50 Thoughtful Last Minute Christmas Gifts For Procrastinators,” Rania Naim’s heartfelt piece about true friendship, and Michael Thompson’s insights into the elements that make relationships endure.

“Making Your Space A Spirited Oasis” invites you to embrace the festive season with Josh Lezmi’s roundup of “New Christmas Movies Streaming This Holiday Season,” Mariel English’s suggestions for “The Best Foods To Warm You Up During The Winter Weather,” and David Burnett’s curated “Songs For Your Lonely Christmas Playlist.”

“In The Stars” once again offers celestial insight by ranking the Zodiacs from “Overly Festive To Total Grinch,” soulmate guidance, and “What Each Zodiac Can Expect From Their Next Life Chapter, According To A Tarot Reader.”

“Share Your Love This Holiday Season” advocates for spreading love and kindness with affirmations, self-reflection, and self-love. Furthermore, we explore expressing gratitude and appreciation through “Let Friends Know You Care,” “Proclaim Your Love For Them,” and the art of gifting in our comprehensive “Gift Guide.”

As you immerse yourself in these pages, may you find inspiration, solace, and joy, and may this holiday season bring you the warmth of cherished connections and the comfort of self-discovery.
