Thanksgiving marks the official start of the holiday season in the United States, where I live. For many of you, the holiday season has already begun.
It’s a time of year that can be challenging for many, and bring up lots of mixed feelings around the areas of food, sugar, family, togetherness, and connection.
The holidays, family, and food all point to a common yearning: our longing for relationship and connection. It’s this yearning – our relational hunger – that gets triggered by the holidays. And it’s this yearning that can seek expression in sugar, food and overeating.
To help nourish your holiday season, I created a video for you.
In the video, I talk about how you can befriend and care for your relational hunger – something that can help you feel more at ease with the holidays, and holiday food.
