If you’re out of a job, or you’re low on funds, chances are you may not be in the most festive of moods this holiday season. Here are some tips from our friends at Black Voices to help you survive – and even thrive – during the holidays, enjoying yourself and those around you even if money is extremely tight.
1. Go Volunteer:
Have you visited a soup kitchen, a homeless shelter or a home for battered women lately? Pay a visit to any of these places and volunteer to help out for a day – or even just an hour or so – and I can guarantee you that you will have a fresh perspective on your own situation, no matter how dire it may be. Nothing will take you out of the doldrums faster than seeing so many people out there who have it far worse than you do.
