We are excited to share that René Brooks is continuing her guest-hosting of Distraction through November and December!
Today René is joined by Liz Lewis, an ADHD coach, writer and advocate to help all of us enjoy the holidays a little bit more. “If the pressure to perform all of the holiday pageantry is on you, this message is for you,” our guest-host says in this episode.
A never-ending to-do list, holiday shopping for days, pressure from family, impromptu invites… the list of stressors around this time of year can be incredibly overwhelming. Through today’s conversation, René and Liz hope to help you put some of the fun back in the holidays, with some simple ideas on how to make this time of year less stressful and maybe even enjoyable. (We have hope!!)
You can reach Liz Lewis by sending her an email.
