    How to Manage Your Eating and Enjoy Christmas

    How to Manage Your Eating and Enjoy Christmas

    Nurturing yourself through the pressures of Christmas. Part of the reason we eat so much at Christmas is that it's so easy to do it. Our whole culture makes it easy for us to do so. However, there are many traditions and habits associated with Christmas that can create pressure and obligations. One way to control your eating during Christmas is to politely decline food that you don't really want.
    This is the second of my Christmas podcasts, where I talk about the pressures of Christmas, and guide you through the challenges of festive eating. I also share personal experiences and emphasise the importance of making conscious choices to take care of yourself during this time. 
    11.24 - To end the episode, I tell a heart-warming Christmas story: 'What Happened Christmas Eve' by Oliver Herfold.

    When Christmas Feels Lost: A Story for Those Facing GRIEF

    When Christmas Feels Lost: A Story for Those Facing GRIEF

    Welcome to the first of three Christmas podcasts, where I talk about the different feelings we have during the holiday season. Today, I focus on how it can be hard to deal with loss during Christmas. It can be tough if someone you love isn't there, if you had a difficult relationship, or if you just feel sad during this time of year. I want to support you and give you permission to feel your grief.

    I'll share stories, talk about love and grief, offer tips for taking care of yourself during the holidays, and I'll end with a moving and meaningful Dickensian Christmas story. So, get cosy, find a quiet place, and let's attend to how we can heal.

Enlightening

I’m really enjoying this series. It is full of insightful ideas presented in a compassionate way.

I often find myself pausing the playback to reflect on what’s been said and have even made notes, something I never normally do!

I found writing a proud list at the end of each day particularly powerful. It gives me something to fight the negative thoughts with and helps me get to sleep.
