“I guess the average person doesn't have a plan. So that's a good first start, like have a plan. Everybody should have a plan. That's good.

But in this setting, can we shift, gear down to something that's more simple, that's more in line with your views, and then it gives you more time to be and to rest and to use this season, the cozier, darker season of this holiday, to slow down and to have a little more presence and comfort for yourself instead of frenzied running around.” - Jill Farmer Jen and I want to talk about something that's pretty timely, and that's holiday stress ..read more
