You should have better Christmas lights, you should have already decorated, you should be baking treats, but you should also be watching your treat intake . . . Does “should” ever haunt you?

Today my guest is Crystal Stine, she’s an author and speaker, and today we talk about how to quiet the shout of should during the holiday season and all year long. The pressure is off my friend. Listen and be encouraged. Connect with Crystal and learn more about her at:
