Wrap Up That Family Dynamic

The holidays are a stressful time for many people.

Not only is there more to do, there’s a family dynamic that often brings more stress.

Siblings. Parents. Cousins. And that uncle who, every year, you wish would just stay home.

But instead of wrapping one more package this holiday season, why not “wrap up” those pressing family matters that are a source of ongoing stress.

Have the crucial conversations . . . set boundaries for future behavior . . . and prioritize your immediate family’s well-being. After all, chances are that you’re not the only one being affected: your spouse and kids are on edge, too.

Whatever it is, get it handled by the end of 2020, then make plans for an amazing family life in 2021.

The idea of setting boundaries for outliers while strengthening your “inner circle” family relationships is something I learned from Dave Braun and Troy Amdahl (aka “The OolaGuys”) authors of the book, Oola: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World.

This December, try focusing on your immediate family’s well-being for a few days and see what happens.

Then get ready for an extraordinary year in 2021. As a Certified Oola Life Coach, I’ve joined forces with Dave and Troy to help clients set goals next year in all 7 major areas of life: fitness, finance, family, field (career), faith, friends, and fun. Through the 10-week Oola Coaching Program, I’ll help you establish new goals, prioritize your tasks and—most importantly— stay accountable to accomplishing them week by week.

Message me and we can jump on a call about it. Until then, be grateful, have faith, and go get your Oola Life.

Together, we are Positively Powerful!
