Originally aired: November 21, 2016
Christopher: It’s the most stressful time of the year and that’s not just because of my singing. Christopher Lawrence with Change my Life Coaching here, with Kyle Kalloo with Change my life coaching. We wanted to talk to you about this time of year, because people get stressed out and you’re going to see lots of videos, and lots of tips on holiday shopping, and learning to say no, and not burning out, don’t stress yourself out, and all this stuff but you have a unique opinion Kyle. What’s your opinion?
Kyle: Get stressed out because there’s coaches. No. You know what here’s the thing, because when people are stressed out what do we do? We cocoon, we stay at home, we don’t do anything, we don’t have a lot of monies, so we can’t take trips, we can’t do all that. My thing is you don’t have to do all that, try. Can I just kick it off with a challenge already?
Christopher: Oh let’s do a challenge.
Kyle: Let’s just say make a list of 5-10 people you have not connected with in a long time, and make a point to actually connect with them over this Christmas holiday season, season’s greetings whatever. Go to the park, go for a coffee, go for a walk, make them tea. Whatever that is for you just go out, just connect.
Christopher: Yeah just to connect.
Kyle: Yeah just connect to people; make it about networking this Christmas.
Christopher: Or just being with people.
Christopher: It doesn’t have to cost anything.
Kyle: Family or friends just say you know what, let’s go for a walk. Unless you’re in the area that doesn’t have sidewalks, Calgary.
Christopher: My family is really big on not doing gifts actually. Like we might do a stocking but we don’t often do gifts, and I think around this time of year there’s a big to do. But it’s like my favourite times are like watching Christmas movies with friends.
Kyle: Sound of music.
Christopher: While the Christmas lights are on.
Kyle: It’s still on but I still love it. But how do you solve a problem like Maria right, how you catch a cloud and pin it down? I may not have seen one or two, but anyway I hear you saying it’s not. Hey if you can do gifts do gifts. I’m not saying don’t do gifts. I’m just saying find a way to make it about connection and network.
Christopher: I don’t even think you have to do that just because of Christmas.
Christopher: So the challenge is don’t be stressed, and don’t let your stress stop you from participating in fun things.
Christopher: That’s it.
Kyle: Go do it. That was easy.
Christopher: Hashtag have fun.
Kyle: Have fun. That’s it from us.
Christopher: Sometimes we call it a hash brown, hash brown have fun.
Kyle: No one calls it a hash brown honestly. Have a great Christmas.
Christopher: Bye team. Great Christmas its November, they’re going to see us again.
Kyle: Oh okay. Till next week.
