Savor the Holidays

A mini course designed to help you slow down & find joy this holiday season

The holidays have a way of making us feel frenzied and unable to appreciate how wonderful this time of year can be.

It’s about time we change that, don’t you think?

I invite you to join me for a Savor the Holidays 21-day mini course to slow down and soak up all the joy this holiday season has to offer.

While this mini course has the potential to provide huge value to yourself or someone you love this holiday season, it won’t require a huge time investment on your end. I know that time is your most precious resource, and the goal of this course is to help you use your time wisely this holiday season so that you can get the most happiness and joy between Thanksgiving and Christmas.


What’s included:

  • A PDF workbook with all 21 lessons right at your finger tips, so you can work at your own pace and reference them year after year if you choose.
  • Each lesson in the workbook will guide you through simple and quick steps for how to truly slow down and enjoy each aspect of the holiday season. You can expect actionable tips that will include both mindfulness techniques, as well as a bit of fun and whimsy πŸ™‚
