MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota — Why are we talking about the holidays in October? Because with a little thoughtful planning, your holiday season can be your best eve! Alissa Daire Nelson, Transformational Coach and Owner of Daire Success Coaching, wants you to embrace boundaries and break the mold this holiday season. She said, “Creating your best holiday season ever will take thought, intention, and new conversations.” Nelson believes people should claim their space and own their voice while simultaneously expanding their comfort zone.

Sure holidays can be hard, but they don’t have to be. Keep some great traditions and reminisce with the people who mean the most to you. “However, recognize people who are toxic and set limits (with a plan) on the amount of time you spend with them,“ said Nelson. Now is the time to start having those difficult conversations to avoid extra stress, conflicts and heartaches during the holiday season
