Welcome to the '5th Thing' with Amy & Kat!! Today’s quote is: "Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most." - Ruth Carter Stapleton (FYI: she is the youngest sister of President Jimmy Carter, no relation to Chris Stapelton - which was Amy’s first thought!!)

Amy gives a shout out to Kat’s ‘You Need Therapy’ podcast (her Nov 23rd ‘Couch Talks’ episode) and Kat talked about fairly splitting time between families, in-laws, and people you love during the holiday ANNNNND how to handle and prepare for harmful comments about food, body image, and weight during a season heavily influenced by food! Something that also stood out to Amy while listening was: “when emotion comes in…logic turns off” so Amy & Kat break that down a little bit. The episode is called ‘Holiday Help’ and you can listen to it HERE

Also discussed in this episode:

  • How we will never have it all figured out in life
  • A listener email from “Mama Mary” who is 65 years old that has some wisdom in her note
  • Amy’s daughter hops on the mic to remind Amy that she doesn’t have it all figured out the definition of a Homie Hopper
  • Why salt is in salt shakers at restaurants
  • How to make your house smell like the holidays (other than stovetop potpourri
  • Candles being hazardous for your home
  • & more!

    Thank you licensed therapist, Kat Defatta, for joining us with her wisdom. You can find her on Instagram: @Kat.Defatta + @YouNeedTherapyPodcast.
