surviving family holidays

The holidays are just around the corner and so many of us will be stepping out of our everyday routines and into family gatherings.

Family gatherings can really run the gamut from being a time of reconnection and warmth to a time of stress, disagreement, and conflict. You may even be dreading stepping back into the emotional kettle called family.

As we heard from Toni Herbine-Blank the relational therapist in my last podcast her tip was to show up as an adult this holiday and not to get taken over by emotions that are from our child parts or triggers from long ago.

Showing up as an adult can be easier said than done! This podcast is chock-full of tips and tricks for staying in Self and even – dare I say – having fun this holiday season?
