Ever feel the pressure to make sure things are just absolutely perfect for everyone, especially during the holidays or other full times? From gifts to making great food, to how to spend your time, there’s so much pressure to make sure that everything you do makes everyone else happy.

Feeling pulled in like 10 directions at the same time?

With the holidays near, it’s important to figure out how to nourish yourself during a busy time and create a framework around full times that is life-giving for you.

In this episode, Dr. Maria Sirois dives deep into how to care for yourself during the holidays or any extra “full” time in your life.

We know that "self-care” is not just about getting enough sleep and going to the gym a few times a week. It’s all about knowing how to deal with challenging people in challenging circumstances.

Maria outlined beautifully how to make a really small—but hugely transformative—shift in our fullest times so that we still get to experience what we want more of in our life.
