Live Happier Through the Holidays


I love the holidays. Hands down it is my favorite time of the year. AND this year it is going to be different. COVID is here and it is turning the holidays on its head.

6 years ago I started Live Happier Through the Holidays. It started because my own holidays had gotten out of focus. I was so consumed with making the holidays appear a certain way I had lost my own love of the holidays. I was burnt out.

I wanted to do it differently, but I didn’t want the same old advice to take a bubble bath, meditate, or take a break.

I wanted to find real strategies for building more connections, having more peace, and soaking up everything I loved about the holidays.

This is why I started Live Happier Through the Holidays, a daily love letter to you delivered to your inbox each day of the holiday season focused on reducing anxiety and creating a holiday season of peace and calm.

And then 2020 hit.

I debated canceling the series this year.

And then I decided it is needed this year MORE than ever.

2020 has been hard so let’s end it with as much calm, authenticity, and comfort as possible.

“It’s like you are reading my mind!! This was the perfect little nudge to press pause and see what was really going on.”

“WOW. You have really nailed me to the tree on this High Functioning Anxiety stuff. It is so good to know I am not the only one. Thank you for doing this and helping me get through the holidays this year.”

Here is how it works:

Each morning from November 25th through December 25th (but you can sign up and join us anytime), you will receive a note from me in your inbox filled with practical tips to reduce anxiety and stress so you can live happier this holiday season.

Think of it as a daily message from your Biggest Fan.

I will be honest because this year is so strange (unprecedented as they say!) these notes will be different than in years past. My plan is to write to you each day, sometimes it will be a message about COVID, sometimes it will be about dealing with relatives, sometimes it will be about making the holidays yours. But they will all be talking about making this time of year that is landing at the end of a crazy hard year a little calmer.

Here are my goals:

  • Brainstorming how to celebrate the holidays in COVID times
  • Dealing with the extra stress and uncertainty COVID brings.
  • Stop white-knuckling through the holidays and instead savor them with the people you love the most (whether from a distance or close together)
  • Reduce the drama, anxiety, and consumerism of the holidays and remember why you love the holidays so much.

My gift to you. 31 days of wisdom and grace delivered to your inbox to experience as much calm, authenticity, and comfort as possible.

You don’t have to white-knuckle your way through the holiday season. You can do it with more grace and calm.

“I made a note to come back and reread this email during the holidays. I will probably keep coming back to it from time to time even after. Thank you for your words of wisdom during this beautiful/challenging season.”

“Thank you so much for helping me with living happier through the holidays!
You have been such an inspiration to me and your thoughts have been so comforting in every way every day this month.
I am living happier and differently this season by appreciating friendships in a new way and by asking for help when I need it. And along the way, you have been my guardian angel!”
