How to Approach and Get the Most Out of the Holidays This Year


The holidays are here, and if you’re like us, that probably brings a whole mixed bag of emotions, especially because this “most wonderful time of year” will look so out of the ordinary.

On the one hand, the season may be just the mood-lifter you need — you can watch all the festive movies on Hallmark and Netflix, and eat holiday cookies to your heart’s content. But you also might feel a big wave of melancholy. Maybe you won’t be able to get together with your family, and share that big, traditional feast you know and love. 

That’s why this week on the EveryDay Happy Show I share 4 ways to navigate the 2020 holidays and how you can find joy in a simpler holiday season.

EDH Show — Ep. 10: How to approach and get the most out of the holidays this year. 

Listen and enjoy here.


I hope this episode helps you feel more peace, love, and joy during the holiday season!

Sounds nice, but how, you may be wondering? I’m so happy you asked!

You Are Enough, Right Now

You Are Enough, Right Now

Some days you may feel like you’re not good enough, or doing enough. You may wish you could snap your fingers and turn into a version of yourself you think you should be with a perfect job, spotless house, and exciting hobbies (or whatever your definition of an ideal life may be).
