She’s here to give us some mindfulness tips to help us get through the holidays. She will be sharing some simple but powerful tips on how to move through this holiday seasons with grace and self-compassion.
“It’s really important that we get clear on why we want to do this, and it’s because we love our kids, we love our families, and we want to create beautiful memories for them. So having a little compassion for ourselves helps.”
