Straight and Curly Ep 51: How to not lose your mind this Christmas

‘Tis the season to be merry! And it’s also the time of year where things do tend to get on top of us all. We’re tired, our kids (if we have any) are tired, there are catch ups galore, tonnes of indulgent food and drink on offer … and let’s not even talk about the fact that we’re expected to attend family and work functions with people we’d prefer not to be around.

It’s a recipe for frustration and angst so today’s episode is all about seeing you through December with stress levels under control and a minimal need for elasticised waist bands. Carly and I share our best tips for:

  • Making sensible food choices
  • Maintaining peace
  • Getting in the photo
  • And keeping things simple
