It’s hard to believe that it’s already the week before Thanksgiving! Since the holidays are just around the corner, I thought I’d share this fun article on ways to decrease the stress around holiday entertaining.
Women in the U.S. find holidays stressful, says the American Psychological Association. “Of course they do,” says Julie de Azevedo Hanks, author of The Burnout Cure. “There’s the pressure to have a ‘great time,’ the expectations that everything from entertaining to family travel will go flawlessly,” she says. It’s All. Just. Too. Much. Don’t get your holiday apron in a bunch the day after Halloween. “Start the season being realistic about how things are going to turn out,” she says. “Don’t get your heart set on Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner going perfectly, or the notion that everyone will be ecstatic about the gifts you’ve given them.”

We met 7 years ago at a conference. Since then I’ve seen you go through many difficult life experiences that are now in your first book. Tell a little bit about those experiences, in your own words.
Yes. Seven years and it feels like nothing, yet so much has happened in those years! This is How We Grow shares the four years after my sister and brother-in-law died, we inherited our two nephews, and I had our fourth baby, going from three to six kids practically overnight. The years that followed brought much learning and growth, as we navigated grief, postpartum depression, family relationships, and struggled to build our new family. As a clinical psychologist specializing in grief/loss, women’s mental health, postpartum, motherhood, and parenting, it was especially interesting to watch myself go through this “doctor becomes the patient” experience. In this book I share the insights and lessons I gained as I overcame my challenges, became my true self, and eventually flourished.
What do you see when you look in the mirror? If the first thing that comes to mind is something critical, you’re not alone. This month on KSL’s Studio 5 with Brooke Walker, we challenge you to think positive about your body.

The Wall Street Journal recently decided to look at some interesting new research that looks at the real reasons people are having sex. The findings seem to correlate the reason for sex with sexual and relational satisfaction. I shared a few thoughts on getting positively motivated…
If you’re feeling like you’d just rather go to sleep, try tuning into the emotional connection between you and your partner, says Julie Hanks, a clinical social worker in Salt Lake City. “Lead with what you want instead of what you don’t want to happen,” she says.

Saying no to friends, neighbors, even family makes us feel guilty. Why is it so hard to say a confident no? Nearly two-thirds of women I’ve surveyed report having difficulty saying no when asked to do something they don’t want to do. Here’s today’s fun discussion on Studio 5 with Brooke Walker on why you don’t need to feel guilty when you choose to say this simple little word…no.
