Creative “No, Thank Yous”

It’s been a long year, and we’re in the midst of the holiday season right now in many parts of the world. In this week’s Vlog, some participants from our Bright Line Holiday course make surprise guest appearances to share their best tips for how to say “no, thank you” to any food you might be offered. During this time when so many festivities revolve around eating, having a few quick and polite responses at the tip of your tongue may be just the thing you need.

    I am so glad I do all the cooking. I am cooking meat, veggies and salad I have other stuff for the others but it’s very simple and store bought so I don’t spend any time on it. Very easy . I loved the part of the blog where some give a long explanation and others do the helping and visiting. So helpful. Thanks.

    Such great reminders. I watched the ‘no thank you’ videos on the Bright Line Holiday course but they are so worthy of revisiting. I’m taking my food with me as it is a small gathering this year just with my kids and folks,. There will be questions from my mother, but we may actually get to talk about my issues with food without her glossing over it. That would be a gift to me, but not essential for my food addiction journey if she closes off. Happy holidays to all.
