Holidays are tough because sometimes we feel pressured to please everyone – never easy to let a family member down! Other times we just feel flat-out out of control. Been there for sure, but it helps to know that it doesn’t *have* to be that way. I struggled for a long time with setting those boundaries and letting people make me feel badly – surrounding yourself with supportive people, AND strategies, helps!
There’s enough stress this time of year – between the parties, mini vacations, and family gatherings – do what feels right for you, and feel good about it. You’re allowed!
Elke S. Nelson, PhD and CFL-1 also has some “Weight Loss Hacks” for this time of year – the more the merrier as far as help staying on track for me. Temptations all over the place!
