The holidays always have the potential to be stressful, and when you add in an ongoing pandemic, it might feel like too much!

The Doctors call on Cat and Nat from the popular YouTube series “Mom Truths" to share their tips on how to survive the season that is supposed to be festive. 

They explain their approach to the unexpected stress related to being cooped up with your family is to "just roll with it and let a lot of things go." They suggest creating little moments or activities the whole family can look forward to, like possibly having an ice cream night or movie night. They also suggest that parents try and "find the fun when things are falling apart."

As for tips on how to survive the season with your partner, they remind us that "this year is different" and it is perfectly acceptable to lower the expectations about creating amazing memories. Their other tips include:

  • Take time for yourself and create your own space
  • Put off any major events until after the holidays
  • Focus on connecting with your partner in simple ways -- like watching a show you both enjoy together
