1. Preplan for the Holiday Season Dr. Ron Kaiser 12:58

More often than not, the holidays are a hectic time. Between shopping, cooking, cleaning, eating, and seeing friends and family, it can all be a lot to manage. Staying on top of diets and staying away from over-indulging can be difficult, and can seem impossible. This is why preparation is key.

We often think of preparing for the holidays in terms of deciding what meals to cook or strategizing on where to spend them, but it’s equally as important to mentally prepare for them. In this solo episode, I guide you through how to navigate this holiday season in a way that isn’t overwhelming, emotionally charged, or stressful. I offer helpful tips on how to plan and provide insight into why it’s important to do so.
