Surviving the Holidays: How to be Happy and Fit In Your Clothes

Welcome to Podcast Episode 41 (listen here) on how to survive the holidays while being happy and not worrying about your waistline in the process!

Let’s not kid ourselves, the holidays aren’t the “happiest time of the year” for recovering alcoholics and addicts. It’s the time of year when most relapses occur and some of us slip into our deepest depressions. Whether it’s past trauma, being triggered by family, or just the general change in weather and light, it’s a tough time for so many in recovery. What if there’s a better way? One that doesn’t involve self-medicating or relapsing. As a bonus, what if you could get through the holidays without adding those extra holiday treat pounds?

Enjoy this conversation today about Chris’ adventures over his 7-month journey walking across America for recovery. We talk about the undeniable connection between him and his twin brother.
