Save what inspires you
Holidays are supposed to be a happy time, but many people feel sadness due to heightened expectations, family rifts and comparison with others.
Our cause of sadness is often related to the fact that we compare our lives with the lives o the people we follow and that seem to be having loads of fun on social media
Try to avoid social media during holidays and during mandatory social gatherings. Also, avoid gatherings that drain your energy.

Brighten your day by being generous, providing funds to the needy, holiday gifting to the poor, or doing some volunteer work.
