My pressure to people please, my estrangement from my family, and my pain from abuse meant holidays used to leave me feeling more stressed than joyful. But step by step, I've addressed the 5 things that kept me there.
If you've survived childhood abuse, the holidays can be especially stressful and overwhelming. But it doesn't have to be that way. Good self care can provide you a holiday you actually enjoy.
Whether your holiday struggle is family issues or overcommitment, you deserve to consider your needs.
As you learn to consider your needs and meet them, you'll actually have more energy to do the rest of your life better and with more love, which will give you more peace and more joy.
In these short (10-20 minute) audio lessons, you'll get quick but powerful ways to take away the pain, stress and exhaustion from your holiday season. You'll be empowered to start the new year refreshed.
Not only that, you can use these insights to create a more nurturing lifestyle for yourself throughout the whole year!
Let me show you how you can overcome the stress and overwhelm of your holidays and actually enjoy the season.
