Are you leading the dance with food or is food leading you?

Trimming the Holiday Fat

190: Trimming the Holiday Fat

There is often a disconnect between what we believe the holidays are about and how we actually go about living them.

We say we believe the holidays are all about love, peace, gratitude, and connection, but we don’t make time for those things. Or, we are only partially present.

Instead, we live the holidays stressed, fatigued, overwhelmed, resentful, and frustrated. Worse yet, we use the rational that we are doing it for others.

But here’s a hard truth… if mama ain’t happy, no one is happy!

If you truly want to enjoy the holiday season this year and roll into the New Year feeling energized and ready, check out this episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast.
