Episode 44: Isn’t it time you decided for yourself?

Episode 44: Isn’t it time you decided for yourself?

This episode is all about removing stress from your life! Step One: make sure you are the person calling the shots in your life. Celebrities, marketing and social pressure have no place in your decision making. Step Two: make sure you feel grateful and appreciated. Step Three: do what you want to do with the people you want to spend time with.

Around the holidays, there are several ways you can put these steps into practice. For example, do you even like Christmas pudding or would you prefer chocolate cake? Do your kids need (or even want) 10 new toys or is there one special thing they would love? Do you like holiday parties or would you rather go for a walk with friends? There are sets of rituals we are told we must follow during the holiday season, and I’m sure I’m not the first to tell you how stressful these can be.

I invite you to be discerning this holiday season about what really brings you joy and adds value to your life. In the new year, I invite you to extend this practice to other areas, such as your business, your health and your social life.
