Family guilt and drama around the holidays is an annual source dread for many people. For some, it’s the logistical problem of seeing many people (and sometimes traveling) on a compressed timeline. For others, the holidays come with baggage and expectations, especially with extended family. In Episode 17 of Edit Your Life, Asha and I share about our family get-together rituals pre- and post-kids + 9 tips for getting over the guilt and shaping your own family traditions.
