Family Stress and You: How to Handle the Drama Like a Pro

I was so honored to join the Today Show last week to talk about surviving family gatherings. Hoda and I tackled a few different survival topics from dealing with difficult family members to connecting with your significant other. Although the segment was for Christmas, the tips I gave can be used all year round for any holiday parties, birthday parties and whenever your family gathers.

So, what could be so stressful? There may be different personalities and a whole lot of history. We all have the relative who likes to stir the pot or family members that may not always see eye to eye. Add kids to the mix, maybe some wine, and any other factors to the mix and you have a recipe for family drama.

How do you keep your sanity and your family in tact? Watch this video and see what I said to make Hoda speechless!

I hope you and your family had a lovely holiday and have a Happy New Year!
