What Nadine Levitt can say in an interview about
Navigating Our Emotions Surrounding Holiday Stress

    • The holidays can be a stressful time for everyone, with last-minute shopping, sometimes financial or personal or family pressures building up, and lots of expectations for how it’s all going to go!

    • Approach the holidays with curiosity. Letting go of expectations (only caused by your pattern recognition) and staying on top of your emotional responses can make a huge difference.
    • Stop playing the same “story” in your mind. We are, as human beings, programmed to recognize patterns, but those patterns are not based on facts; they are based on the stories we tell ourselves, and they can be highly unhelpful as they are the culprits for our expectations.
    • Realize reality. Arguably, all of life’s conflict comes from unmet expectations, so be aware of the difference between reality and your predictions.
    • Stay in tune with your emotions. Try to make a habit of checking in with yourself and seeing how you feel. Identifying and acknowledging emotions quickly as they come up makes it easier to process them.
