There is usually no time of year that I feel more crazed—or question my decision-making more—than in the stretch between Thanksgiving Eve (“Why did I think I could host a meal for 33 without taking off work the day before?!”) and New Year’s Eve (“Why did I buy a dress that requires those stick-on boob thingies I know never, ever, ever, ever work for me?!”). But last year, things changed. My mother and aunt decided that instead of having one person make the whole T-Day meal, each family member would bring a couple of dishes.

kick back with connie

Connie Britton brings quiet strength to her characters and a lot of love to the table, onscreen and in real life—just don’t ask her to cook. “I am most definitely not the chef,” she says. “I am so not a chef that really nobody [in my family] wants me to do the turkey.” Her contribution? “You know, I’m very entertaining.” Well, that’s the understatement of the century. Connie’s soul-deep characters have served as some of the chief entertainment for millions of families’ lazy weekends and snowy afternoons. If you haven’t seen them in a while, now’s the perfect time to re-binge-watch Friday Night Lights and Nashville. And later this month, we’ll be glued to our sectionals watching her next project, Dirty John. The television series is based on the popular podcast…

10 proven ways to feel more joyful

When good things come around, like the holiday season, people think they’ll automatically feel happy,” says Fred Bryant, Ph.D., a social psychologist at Loyola University in Chicago and coauthor of the book Savoring. “But we don’t always react to these good things in a way that maximizes their benefits.” (You might, for instance, futz around with the place settings instead of drinking in your family’s laughter, or dismiss a long-deserved promotion as just extra work.) Enter the technique psychologists call savoring, a way to fully absorb life’s wonderful moments, large and small. “Through your thoughts and behavior, you extend and intensify a good experience, extracting every morsel from it,” says Bryant. The result: not just more delightful moments but a boost in overall happiness levels as well. “Savoring gives you a…
