The holidays are, for most people, a reason to gather with their loved ones and celebrate. But for many people, Christmas and New Year’s Eve are two of the most triggering weeks of the year.
In today’s episode, Mike Warren visits us to talk about the side of the holidays no one wants to discuss: a lot of people suffer during this time of the year. Mike is an Executive Coach at ATI, and an active member of the Christian recovery group, Celebrate Recovery.
Mike brings our attention to the other side of the holidays, how they affect those dealing with addictions, the loss of a loved one, or even those just trying to avoid unhealthy foods. He also talks about how the expectations around the holidays are massive triggers for many people and the importance of establishing solid and healthy boundaries.
Plus, Mike shares some tips for practicing acceptance, serving others, and much more.
