Do the Holidays Stress You The Elf Out?

The holidays are the best time of year, right? All smiles and candy canes? Nope. 40% of people report that the holidays suck. We’ve been there too, and if you’re anything like us you can relate to this:

  • Every smiling and laughing couple just makes you feel more alone.

  • There’s never enough time to see everybody, do everything, and it’s exhausting and you’d rather go under a blanket and curl into a ball.

  • Time with the family brings up old wounds, tired conversations, and awkwardly bad times. Let's hope there's at least lasagna.

  • All these gifts to get? Having to receive things I don't even want. WTF.

  • Meeting everyone’s needs is impossible and anxiety-inducing. Maybe more coffee and christmas cookies will help.  

  • You find yourself consuming lots of alcohol and staying endlessly busy with events, errands, and gift shopping until we feel like we need a holiday from the holidays.

  • You get to the new year feeling like your life is a mess, and where the hell is the reset button? It’s time to buy that year gym membership you’ll use for about a month.

  • Maybe the holidays aren't that bad for you, but you just want to relax and recharge. Your life is hard enough so you just want the holidays to feel like a break, to be easy, to get some of that comforting holiday spirit. Where the hell are you holiday spirit? Show yourself!


We’ve been there. If you can relate any of this then you are in the right place, because this year, we're going to help each other.

You’re Missing Out On Peace (and Fun)

We’re not trying to give you FOMO. We’re saying that holiday time can actually be an amazing opportunity for rest, reflection, celebration, and connection. We’ve experienced this, and it’s fantastic. Holiday stress robs you of that experience. 

Every year you don’t fix this problem you have another year of headaches, awkwardness, gift-getting anxiety, and the old emotional patterns with yourselves and your families can stay stuck. You head into the new year with all the baggage you’ve carried feeling even heavier. 

You are missing the opportunity to actually refresh yourself, care for yourself, change old habits and patterns, and relate to your relations in ways that actually feel good for maybe the first time in your life. 

The holidays can be a bad or at least awkward dream that lasts for weeks, or they can be a gift that you give to yourself. A gift that permanently reduces your stress, and sends you into the new year with accelerating momentum to make your life a better match for you. Imagine how much more progress next year can bring for you if the holidays help you and propel you instead of hurt. That gym membership will actually stick this time. Can you afford another year of even sub-optimal holidays? There is no need to tolerate that when you can find peace and rejuvenation instead. 

How Arnaud Found A Peaceful Holiday

Let me tell you about Arnaud's holiday experience, you'll get more details in the course. One holiday season he was visiting extended family with his own family and close pressure of the holiday questions and activities led to a mini-breakdown. He realized much of his life wasn’t working for him. He realized he was pushing himself to exhaustion and trying so hard, but for what? He called David and screamed into the phone - “This is not sustainablllllllllllllleee!” 

Fortunately, Arnaud and David are experienced meditators and emotional processers. David coached Arnaud into using techniques to calm the mind and body and connect to his real self. Arnaud began to see his truth through the holiday fog. He discovered the feelings he would actually love to feel. With courage, he began speaking with his family from a deeper more vulnerable and authentic place. This felt good and it paid off. His family surprised him with responses of more support and connection than Arnaud had hoped for. He ended the holiday season feeling actually closer to his family, with a new commitment to himself, and new momentum to express his truth moving forward. That momentum stayed with him the whole following year and it led him to going on a spiritual retreat for the first time, teaching and coaching others, and starting his own online platform called Peaceful Creativity, where this course is now happening! 

Just like Arnaud, you can transform the holidays into personal awesomeness.
