Episode 05 - Intentionally Designing Your Holidays

“Take what works for you, lets do it and then when what doesn’t work for you, you don’t have to do that.”

Episode Summary

The holiday season can be a hectic time. Between shopping for gifts, getting your home ready for the festivities, and making sure everything is perfect before the big day arrives, it’s no wonder that people often feel stressed out during this time. To help you prepare yourself for holiday stress and to focus on what matters most this season, join us at Your Life by Design as we talk about intentionally designing the holidays that will make you calm all holiday long. This episode is intended to inspire you to gather the confidence to create the holiday and holiday season you desire. We have Krista, Deboni, Jesi, and Tristen on the podcast today. Tristen tells us her story of how she transformed her thanksgiving and her dislike for the holiday since she is so much nutrition-focussed. She reiterates that it is important for her to figure out the foods that heal her from the foods that hurt her, and most American thanksgiving foods are inflammatory to her.
