Wow, time flies! Can't believe we're in the holidays already. What do the holidays mean to you? Do you have your own special ways you like to mark this time of the year? If yes, please feel free to reply and share them with me! If not, then I'd like to offer the idea of starting your own holiday traditions, whether something solo or with friends/family. These types of rituals can help create comfort and connection during a time of year that many people otherwise find to be hectic... but with a little planning we can usually create meaning and fulfillment even when life is busy.

Below you'll find some of my recent press quotes, as well as a re-post of my holiday stress blog for family get-togethers in case that may be helpful for you or someone you know.

Preview for next month: Nothing says "Happy New Year" like a clear blueprint of your goals for the year! So let's put on our thinking caps now, and start thinking about what we'd like 2019 to look like. What are YOUR goals? Feel free to reply and let me know!
