If you feel a slight twinge of nervousness about the holidays, this is for you

Do you ever feel excited for the holidays, but also a little nervous? 

Even if there’s nothing huge that you need to be nervous about – you like your family! And holiday parties are pretty fun! – you have an odd feeling that’s holding you back a little bit?

Or after the holidays, do you ever feel like, Wow, that was fun, but also, I feel sort of odd and like it wasn’t really me back there.


I thought for a long time about what I wanted to share with you about the holidays.

There’s a lot of great advice and support and inspiration out there about how to avoid gaining 15 pounds over Christmas, or make sure that you don’t have a big fight with your Aunt Petunia at Hanukkah. Heck, I even wrote a guide about how to deal with special holiday foods that I think is really useful. 

But I realized that my personal guiding principle for the holidays is something that I’ve never read in any “how-to” holiday guide, and I've never written about before now.

It’s something that’s a little bit deeper.

So I wanted to share it with you. I wanted to tell it to you face-to-face, so I made you a video. 

I hope you enjoy it.

After you’ve watched the video, I’d love to know what you think. Did it resonate? Have you ever tried this during the holiday season?
