No. It’s NOT too early to start thinking about the holidays and how you have a happier, healthier holiday season!

Who Wouldn’t Want a Happier Holiday Season?

If you’ve ever read John Grisham’s Skipping Christmas, or seen the movie based on the book, Christmas with the Kranks, you’ll understand the appeal of, well, skipping Christmas. Doing something completely different. Breaking with tradition and NOT spending precious vacation time hanging out with people who make you cranky.

But there IS something precious and fleeting about family. And a few self-care hacks might help you have a happier holiday season, even if you end up doing the same thing you’ve done for the last 14 years. Today’s podcast has four actionable hacks to help you enjoy a happier holiday season (and a healthier one, too!)

Maybe I’m the only one who struggles to maintain my equilibrium during the holidays. But I doubt it. I’d love to hear from YOU. What makes life hard (or easier) for you during the holidays? Do you cherish time with extended family? Or do you prefer to celebrate with strangers?
