It’s hard to be a healthy mom during the holidays, isn’t it? While the kids light up with anticipation for Christmas day and hubby settles in to enjoy some time off and delicious comfort food, who does all the work?

Moms, right?

Do you ever feel like Merry Christmas is merry for everyone but you? After all, all I want to do is sit at the feet of Jesus and soak in the hope and joy of the season. But instead, I often feel stressed out and a tad bit anxious. Then, I sometimes medicate with food. Sound familiar?

This series is about mom self-care during the holiday season. We’re talking about ways to de-stress, relax, and avoid self-medicating with food so we can be healthy moms.

The Healthy Mom Hacks for the Holidays series runs December 1-16, 2020.
