What’s Coming This Episode?
Holidays. Buckets and spades, water slides, tension-filled airports and sun burnt faces. A good holiday is hard to come by and, if you’re not careful, can result in higher stress levels than before you set off.
Autumn is starting to close in here in the UK which can be a tough time for those in strained relationships (both with others and themselves), in fact, now might be a great time to take a vacation! Before you do though, let Sean and Ed fill your ears with some advice.
Some points for discussion: What do you consider to be a holiday? Do you feel at all anxious before you set off? If so, you might not be heading to the right place. IF you are heading away with someone soon, think about sitting down with them before you leave and talking about what you both want from your time away.
