    On Scrooge, Gift Giving, and The Cancer Couch - Bonus Replay

    Gift giving – it can be complicated, stressful, and unfulfilling. Did you know that 44% of shoppers rack up more than $1,000 of holiday debt?* As part of the Uncluttered Holidays series, Catherine tackles keeping a holiday budget without being a Scrooge. First, it’s all about setting the intentions for how you want to feel at the holidays.
    Maybe your holidays are not so much about gift giving but spending time together with your family. Catherine’s family gifts a variety of experiences to reduce the inevitable holiday clutter. She wraps up the episode with her thoughts on giving to charity, more specifically The Cancer Couch Foundation founded by Rebecca Timlin-Scalera.
    100% of donations and event proceeds go to the cause and all donations are matched. Catherine is making a donation in the name of her clients, as the cause is close to her heart. She was diagnosed early stage 1 triple positive September 11, 2015. Catherine is now 4 years cancer free and knows that the greatest gift for anyone is time.

    Intentions, Families, and Your Magical Holiday Calendar - Bonus Replay

    In this second segment of Uncluttered Holidays, Catherine interviews Maria Yunis. Maria is a break-through coach who specializes in empowering leaders to reclaim the spark in their lives.
    Catherine and Maria explored how to create a magical holiday calendar, one that works for you and your family. They agreed that self-care has to be scheduled first, even if that’s taking just a few minutes at the beginning of the day to get centered and intentional.
    At a time when the calendar is in flux, it’s even more important to keep some routines. They discussed how different family structures have varying needs at the holiday season, sharing their own personal stories.

    The Great Lie of December, Reflection and Intentional Holidays - Bonus Replay

    The Great Lie of December, Reflection and Intentional Holidays - Bonus Replay

    In the first of this month’s series “Uncluttered Holidays”, Catherine talks about the importance of reflection in the month of December whether you’re Christian and believe in the quiet time of Advent or you celebrate in other ways embracing the peace and darkness that comes in the winter.
    Catherine busts through the unrealistic expectations of the season and let’s you know that you’re ok even if you aren’t wildly enthusiastic about the holidays. She asks that we give one another space and grace as we navigate this busy time of the year. She gives a strategy (and handouts) to help you create your intentional and less stressful holiday season.
    You can reduce that stress by releasing what’s not working for you, whether that’s skipping baking 5 kinds of cookies or limiting your time with the relative who has too much eggnog.
