This workbook is designed to help you through the ups and downs of the holiday season as your confidante, coach and sounding board. In times of stress, you can turn to these journaling exercises (instead of the enticing tin of cookies someone brought into your office) to work through your emotions in a healthy and productive way. Each of the seven chapters represents a different day with a specific theme and journaling exercise. Block off about an hour every day for a week before or during the holidays so you can write consistently and build momentum. Within each chapter, “Focusing on Your Gifts” sections will offer bonus tips, exercises or words of encouragement to keep you going.
