347: Breaking the Mold: Reconsidering Holiday Norms to Protect Your Health
“Shoulding” all over yourself is never good for your mental and emotional health and the holiday season is ripe with expectations around how you “should” be spending them. So, this episode of the Grace & Grit podcast invites you to consider how you want to spend the holiday season this year even though what you discover may go against the grain of tradition and family expectations.
Topics explored in this episode include:
- Extending yourself the grace of making decisions that protect your well-being even when it means disappointing others.
- Acknowledging that joy comes in many forms and that you are the only person who really knows what will bring you true joy this holiday season,
- Owning the fact that how you finish the year is how you will start the year, regardless of your intentions to start fresh come January 1.
Have a listen. If it helps, consider sharing it with a woman who is trying to “should” her way through the season.
