Peace on Earth Goodwill Towards Men (Except for the Self Proclaimed Guru) - The TFCs Navigate the Holidays - Episode 70

Episode 70

Peace on Earth Goodwill Towards Men (Except for the Self-Proclaimed Gurus) - The TFCs Navigate the Holidays

“Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.”

-John Wooden

 

In Episode 70, the Two Fit Crazies will help you face the Bermuda Triangle of Holidays. This is what Brian refers to as the time between Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year. Stress levels are high, diets suffer, workouts are set aside, money is tight, sleep is at a minimum, and there is NEVER enough time in the day to get everything done. The holidays are supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, right?

On top of that, everywhere you look there are self-proclaimed “gurus” and “experts” on television, social media, and more that make unsubstantiated promises that have all the answers, so you can live YOUR BEST LIFE. They seem to have “it” all figured out. Do this. Eat and drink that. Buy this. In actuality, no one has it all figured out….and that’s okay! Christine and Brian offer their advice on how to identify and avoid being duped by false claims and how to embrace things, people, and ideas in life that brings you joy! There is not ONE thing in life that will solve all of your problems. Take a little something from everyone out there, and if you don’t believe us, go read some quotes from John Wooden!

Peace, Love, and Joy…to almost everyone!
