Avoid Upset Stomachs During the Thanksgiving Holiday

20 Nov

Thanksgiving is such a wonderful holiday because it brings together family members, friends, and loved ones. It’s a time where people gather around, reminisce, and talk about a wide variety of subjects, which may include politics.

Instead of getting embroiled in a hot, political debate this Thanksgiving, remind yourself that no one is forcing you to participate. You can politely excuse yourself by going back into the kitchen for seconds – you know you want to anyway! Or go out and get some fresh air.

In other words, you don’t have to let yourself become flustered and upset. If you think about it, what’s the purpose of the conversation to begin with? If people are really locked into the way they think about things, then are you just talking to hear yourself speak – because who’s really listening during an argument about political beliefs? Are you trying to convince them to think differently? Good luck!

So this Thanksgiving, enjoy yourself and your time with friends, family members, and loved ones. Remember that it’s a time to give thanks!
