How to stay relaxed and avoid family drama this holiday season

Celebrating holidays with loved ones can be fun and fulfilling – but it can also be an absolute nightmare and a huge source of stress.

If you are dreading the upcoming holidays, you likely already got the advice to “just don’t go to that family thing”. But it’s not that simple, is it? Family is blood, and that digs into our biological hardwiring, no matter how poor the relationship with your relatives is.
