Leadership & Life Chat - Lonely this Christmas redux

Many will be feeling the ‘pressure of Christmas’ after another challenging year of rising costs. James and Mark are here as your mindfulness gurus in this Christmas special, with their top tips on what you can do to manage expectations and pressure.

Christmas is a wonderful time of year for many, but it can also be a time of great demand, monetarily, socially, and emotionally. We put great pressure on ourselves to be happy, generous and organised, and many will be struggling to balance pay cheques through the rising costs of, well, everything.

James and Mark believe mindfulness is key to surviving the season – it’s so easy to get wrapped up in the idea of a fairy-tale Christmas. Learn how to embrace imperfections and manage expectations as they sprinkle some Christmas cheer and give us one of the best free gifts, some sage advice and wisdom, with a little bit of humour, in this re-release of the 2021 Christmas special episode, as relevant now as it was then. We also announce some exciting changes for Leadership & Life Chat Season 3!

We wish all our listeners a joyful, relaxing and mindful festive season, and we can’t wait to see yule in 2023!

GET IN TOUCH! We would love to hear your thoughts on today’s episode, email us at or leave us a voice note here.
