Episode 28: Busting the Holiday Stress with Dr. Chinwé Williams

I don’t know about you, but I grew up eagerly awaiting the holiday season — the gifts, the decorations, the delicious food, the time off from school and the togetherness of family. When I became a mom, sharing these things with my kids was supposed to be just as magical. Yet the reality of the modern holiday season is often the exact opposite of what we imagined it to be. So how do we make it magical and intentional for ourselves as well as our kiddos? 

On this episode of the WHoly Mom Chat, I sit down with Dr. Chinwé Williams, a Board-Certified Counselor (NCC), Certified Professional Counselors Supervisor (CPCS) and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). She is the owner of Meaningful Solutions Counseling & Consulting and the co-author of the best-selling book SEEN. We chat about how moms can prepare better for the stress of the holiday season. We also talk about why the holidays are stressful, the triggers we need to know, and tips to help make the holidays a wonderful time for our families.

Listen in to learn more:

  • Why the holidays are stressful for moms, and the importance of acknowledging the stress. 
  • The strategy of being mentally prepared
  • Why you need to know your triggers
  • How can we as moms and as a family better prepare for the holidays – mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically?  
  • Remember to enjoy your family, create traditions, be intentional and help others
