Will You See Family for Thanksgiving? Three Things to Try

Are you seeing family members this week? Here are three things to try:

1. Appreciate your family members. Make a list (mental or on paper) of things you like about them, especially the ones you find most challenging.

2. Do a little less — or a little more. If you’re the one in charge of the meal, or the one who is first to help, step it down a little. If you watch football or escape to a quiet room, offer to pitch in. Either way, try to surprise someone.

3. Try approaching the person you tend to avoid. Ask him or her a (non-intrusive) question.

Thanksgiving can be a great opportunity to connect with family — it’s a less high-pressure holiday than Christmas. See what you can learn about your family — and about yourself.
