Pressing Pause

Episode #124

Easing the pressure at this time of year

Gabrielle Treanor


There’s a lot to be dealing with during this festive period – freezing cold weather, strike action, the rising cost of living, as well as getting ready for Christmas with presents to buy and wrap, food to shop for, gatherings to go to, work to squeeze in before the break plus everyday life to wrangle too!   So it’s not surprising it all gets a bit much. But how we can ease the pressure at this time of year when you feel the weight of tradition, of expectation from yourself as well as from other people?

In this episode I share:

  • How comparison makes zero difference to you
  • A different approach to thinking about all the balls your juggling right now
  • How to identify the source of the pressure
  • And ways to release and lift the pressure you’re feeling
