Life can feel incredibly overwhelming at times...when too many things come at you from all different directions and you feel like you've just got to get away...I surely understand that feeling.
Hitting the road to give you and your family some time to de-stress can be the perfect way to enjoy your holiday.
Most of the time we tell ourselves that we just need to get away for a few days and everything will be fine. But the fact of the matter is that most people are just starting to relax after the second or third day of vacation. In this weeks blog post: “Ending the Year on a High Note: Taking a Holiday Vacation with the Family,” we’ll share some great tips about planning the best holiday vacation.
Another part of the holidays that can cause stress is family drama.
You probably have a ‘drama queen’ in your life or know of one. The label is usually applied to women and young teenage girls. But drama conflict isn’t just reserved for women and girls, drama occurs within families, at work and anywhere that there are a few people consistently interacting. It can involve kids, teens, young adults and older adults. No one is really immune!
