Getting together with family and friends is what the holidays are all about. But, as with so much else during this busy season, guilt and obligation can push what should be a joyous time into a crabby slog. In Episode 106 of Edit Your Life, Asha and I give you permission to edit the guilt out of your family gatherings. We start with a check-in on where we’re at this year with holiday preparations, then rebroadcast 9 tips for communicating clearly, setting realistic limits and expectations, and managing the day-to-day logistics during the busy holidays (including carving out time just for you).
