When the whole family comes home at Christmas, my mom has been going non-stop for weeks in preparation and excitement. Like clockwork, inevitably her exhaustion kicks in and she walks out of her bedroom one morning, sick as a dog, sounding like a cigar smoking jazz singer.

I know this has also happened to you. Right when you want to feel your best, you feel your worst.

We have all been stuck between a rock and this hard place: You’re not sick enough to call that big thing off but you know you are just sick enough that pushing it may stop you from enjoying yourself, prevent you from doing what you need to do, or even worse, make you even sicker.

In this episode I share my own story of how I got sick right before a big event abroad where I was center stage, and what I decided I needed to do to manage my very real need to rest so that I could get the job done and not get any sicker.

You´ll discover, what you can do before, during and after your “big thing” so that you make the most of it on all fronts.

Now is the time to be not only proactive but also creative in getting the job done and getting back to health.

Here´s to feeling your best.
