This can be a difficult season for a lot of people. Bustle features Supportiv in an article emphasizing self-care during these trying times.

Co-founder Helena Plater-Zyberk was just included in an article providing tips on how to deal with loneliness over the holidays. These times are when we’re stereotypically supposed to feel the “warmest and fuzziest,” but this article can help you out when that isn’t the case as it so often isn’t! Ways the article suggests to get over the holiday blues are:

  • Starting a tradition just for you
  • Volunteering
  • Talking with loved ones
  • Spending time with yourself
  • Reaching out to those you haven’t spoken to in a while
  • Being mindful about what we’re feeling
  • Avoiding jumping into a new relationship
