          Stress-Free Family Events

          August 29, 2002

          Dr. Phil has advice for happier family events — especially during the holidays.

        • Define in advance what you’re looking for. A spiritual experience? Togetherness? Only when you know what you’re looking for can you create a strategy to get it.

        • Give yourself permission to say no. You need to do what works for you, not necessarily what you think is right.

        • Just because something is a tradition that you’ve been doing for years, doesn’t mean it’s good or should be continued. You may need to break old, toxic traditions and start new, joyful ones.

        • Many family and holiday events revolve around food. Respect the challenges of someone who may be dieting or may have other restrictions, and do not force food on him/her.
