S3, Ep 8 Best Friend Therapy: Festive Hangovers - Why can Christmas feel complicated? How can we support ourselves? What can we learn?
By Elizabeth Day and Emma Reed Turrell
Merry Christmas from Best Friend Therapy!
Or not. Because, however your festive season has been this year, and however you chose to celebrate, you’re welcome in this conversation. So join us, as we ease our festive hangovers together (both literal and metaphorical).
Special occasions and holidays can be a flashpoint for emotions, and expectation can be the thief of joy. We’re not responsible for other people’s enjoyment of Christmas and yet the pressures to shop, socialise, cook, dress, eat and drink in festive form, can overwhelm even the most hardened people-pleasers among us.
Emma and Elizabeth share their best and worst Christmasses and offer advice if you’ve had a tough one this year. And we look forward by looking back, because the Christmas run-up can be one big set-up, and it’s something we can learn from for the future.
*genuine hangover advice also provided*
