When I think about toxic traditions the first thing that comes to my mind is the tradition of gift-giving. Don’t get me wrong, I love to get gifts (anyone else a sucker for unicorn themed presents?). The thought of someone buying me something because they thought of me gives me the warm fuzzies. But why does everybody seem to think (and expect) that you MUST give HUGE gifts for all kinds of occasions? And why do we feel the pressure to celebrate certain days (I’m looking at you New Year’s Eve) even if we feel overwhelmed or are just not in the mood? Listen to my latest episode, to find out why we need a huge mindset shift when it comes to traditions.
