Putting the HAPPY back into the holidays

This audio workshop from Katie Dalebout, mayor of The Wellness Wonderland, is fantastic.  She teaches one of my favorite Kundalini meditations, Ego Eradicator, provides great strategies for finding the happy, and includes a useful handout.

The three holiday F’s – Family, Friends and Food

My amazing health coach, Robyn Youkilis, shares her “sur-thrival guide” for navigating the holidays with ease.  The biggest takeaway for me is the notion of saying no to all of the holiday food.

It’s OK to say no thank you.  You don’t have to try everything.  Your friends and family will understand that you don’t want to try every single item on the holiday menu.  And if they don’t understand, that’s OK too.  Do what feels right. ~Robyn Youkilis
