Should I stay, or should I go?
If I go there will be trouble
And if I stay it will be double.

Do these lyrics from The Clash sound a little like the questions spinning in your head when you think about where you will be for the holiday season?

If you go – you max your credit cards and pull your kids through through multiple continents and timezones.
If you stay – you save money and stress, but your family will be crushed, and you will miss out on your local traditions.

When you are faced with staying put for the holiday season, or making the long haul to loved ones abroad, you might be struggling with this same question.

Should I stay, or should I go?

To know whether you should stay or go during the holidays, you have to name what you need now.

This is the focus of this week’s episode of Expat Happy Hour, “Should I Stay or Should I Go?”: An expat holiday guide, including:

  • How to know whether you should stay or go
  • What to do when you have decided to break tradition and stay put
  • How you can lower resistance, uncertainty or stress for your loved ones to visit you
  • Why it is so important to answer the question “stay or go” with your whole heart
  • The one thing you need to keep in mind if you are in a binational relationship
  • And more!

Let’s face it, we put ourselves under so much pressure during the holiday season to make the most of it. Now is the time to get crystal clear on what you really want so that you can start creating it without the stress.

Here’s to celebrating without regrets.
