It’s human nature to seek comfort. Our brains have evolved to create strong bonds within our social group and to seek out similar individuals. This desire to stay within our comfort zone is stronger than ever during the holidays – a time when we’re surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones. But while the holidays are a great time to relax and recharge, they’re also a perfect opportunity to step outside your bubble and mingle with people who you might not encounter on a daily basis. Why choose to expand your horizons and meet new people? Having one-on-one interactions with a variety of people is one of the best ways to combat deeply held biases (whether conscious or unconscious).

Not to mention, certain Christian sects, such as Jehovah’s Witnesses, do not celebrate holidays.

After all, workplace belonging is one of the most important factors in determining whether someone is likely to remain in their position or search for a new job. On the flipside, being sensitive to everyone’s holiday traditions and preferences does not mean canceling seasonal celebrations entirely. Instead, the holidays can be approached with empathy, an open mind, and the goal to be as inclusive as possible. Here are 5 ways to accomplish that (seemingly) big ask:

Lately, social media has (understandably!) been getting a bad rap. We’ve learned that Instagram has knowingly promoted unhealthy body images to young women; we know that Facebook has done very little to combat hate speech (and may even promote it!).

There are still influential change-makers who are using their social platforms to enact positive change. If you’d like to tailor your social media feed to be a little more empowering, try following some of these positive influencers:
