    Here we go again...the holidays.  For some, it really is the most wonderful time of the year, but for many of us, it's more of a mixed bag: stress, added expenses, family (with all the good and bad), travel, illness, and yes, the food, fun and general festivities, too.  There's nothing new in being more frazzled at this time of year, but wouldn't it be nice to feel less frazzled?  Whatever your approach to self-care is throughout the rest of the year, the holiday season is when your daily and weekly routines - your habits - are more fragile than ever.  With all the additional demands on our time and the increased number of emotional stressors, we risk letting go of the very things that keep us on a more even keel, leaving us feeling overwhelmed, depleted and having a lot less fun than we'd like. By keeping a few guiding principles in mind, you can be more emotionally prepared to handle the stress of the holidays, and feel like your best self in the meantime.

    In this episode, Karen Rigatti discusses how self-esteem is an important part of the expat experience. Often couples have conflicts when the stay-at-home partner feels isolated while the other has the regular routine provided by a job and colleagues.
