31 Five-minute Small Moves that will Create More Ease and Joy in Your Life (and Business) this Season

PLUS supportive community
PLUS a workshop and planning sheets to help you plan and follow through on your plan in December


December often gets idealized as cocoa and cookies, beautiful gifts, fun family moments, or exotic trips… but let’s be honest, it can be exhausting!

Maybe you find yourself...

  • Shopping when you’ve been trying to declutter all year
  • Going to holiday parties at the expense of your wellness
  • Getting busy when you really want tea by a fire

So many women end up feeling overwhelmed, disconnected, and not able to fully enjoy December. When you add in the heaviness of world events and the busyness of the fall, some of us want to hide under the covers until January!

Rethinking “doing it all”
this December

Why should we start the new year feeling depleted, when we could actually enjoy the season and feel energized come January 1?

If you thought you had a long list of “to do’s” before…most of us find that it doubles during the end of the year holidays.

What happens by default:

  • The burden of being the “magic maker,” creating
    magazine-worthy memories 
  • Navigating difficult personal or political divides
    during “happy” holiday moments
  • The traditions that everyone expects you to indulge in

But what if instead, we prioritized and planned for:

  • What we actually want (despite other’s expectations)
  • What our family actually needs
    (despite what the rest of the world is doing)
  • Making a realistic, and intentional plan so that December is joyful (and not draining)

Get grounded so that you’re ready to go in January

Most of us worry that we haven’t “made the most” of the closing year. 
Whether it’s money, body, family, clutter, or logistics, we tend to unnecessarily judge ourselves on what we have (or have not) done. This leads to behavior that maps more to what we don’t really want than what we do really want.

Make December Matter is your solution to put the judgment down, get things done in an easeful way, and find your joy. We'll make a map, so you land in 2024 ready for what's next.


You are signing up for three important components to your success.

I know how it goes when left to do this all alone. But you don't have to.

Here’s the full picture.

Make a December plan with Mia.

Mia will take you step-by-step through the process of thinking about food, family, selfcare, spirituality, work, and all things holidays for the last weeks of 2023. She will then cover how to follow through on your plan. The training and planning sheets are waiting for you on the other side of signing up.

Each weekday, you get a 5-minute tool or strategy from an expert.

We’ve hand picked some incredible teachers to bring transformations to your mind, body, spirit, home, and work during December. Each day you will be invited to integrate a new practice, tool, or strategy into your day. Each video is only 5 minutes, so it is doable, even in this busy season.

You join an amazing community of women.

We are opening up a private community, off Facebook, so you can get inspired, crowd source, and follow through in a more holistic way in December. We will be giving away prizes for participation!

I know there’s so much on your plate right now, but this magical half-day of planning, the connection you crave to help you stick with your plan, and daily inspiration and support will actually make it more easeful and more joyful.

Teachers that will change your life

We’ve hand picked some incredible guides to bring transformations to your mind, body, spirit, home, and work during the month of December. Each day weekday, you will get a 5-minute practice, strategy, or tool that will support how you want to feel this season.

What past Make December Matter attendees are saying...

This is our 5th year doing Make December Matter. Each year we respond to the vibe of the season to give you the best result. In the center of Covid, we all met onlie for 3 days. This year we will have a planning event, followed by mini doses of support throughout December. Our intention is always the same — you experience a December that leaves you feeling great in your body, mind and spirit.

“I think we all get so caught up in the daily grind that we forget what slowing down, breathing and refreshing our plan feels like.”

Melissa, entrepreneur and mom of 2 young adults

“This helped a lot with clarifying how I want the holidays to feel this year. That clarity is going to make December feel more peaceful and purposeful for me”


“What a great day. Thank you, Mia! I really loved this format... the care you took in coordinating everything... meditations, meals, time for walks. So well done.”

Jenna, entrepreneur and mom of 2 teens

“I feel that I am more of a role model to my kids- I’m staying calm and present while also productive. I like the planning aspect because it means that we are all looking forward to a positive future.”

Brigid, manager and mom of 4

“I’ve been feeling so overwhelmed and taking this time to listen and come up with ways to self nurture myself right now and making the days count in such a crazy time.”


“Thank you Mia for putting on this planning event! I loved it last year and this year is just as good! I love the associated planning sheets as well!”

Cynthia, business owner and mom of 2

“I have gotten and am getting so much out of this! Thank you for putting it together - I am so glad I made time for it. What a great gift it was - THANK YOU!”


“I think the MDM workshops come at a great time to ramp up to the stressful holiday season. Although, I think this year will be different for many reasons, so maybe this will be the year many will find their rhythm thanks to your amazing workshop. I shared with 3 friends.”

Angela, entrepreneur and mom of 1

Give Yourself the Gift of a
Sane December

Let’s make this your best holiday season ever, from the inside out. 

Retreat with us to center, plan and be supported with new tools and ideas.  This is YOUR time to make your December really matter, no matter how full your plate is with work, your business, home, health and family.... and have fun doing it.


A note from Mia.... My wellness adventure became a full-blown ride about 14 years ago when I understood the power food could have on my health, my family connection, and my productivity. That experience led me to become a student of life. I have studied mindfulness, yoga, coaching, entrepreneurship, parenting, mindset, relationships, to name a few. 

At the foundation of Make December Matter, are two unforseen gifts from this journey. First, the practice of finding time to plan, especially at times when my plate feels so very full at work and home. Second, the gift of a restorative December. 

Join me and our AMAZING GUEST TEACHERS to MAKE your DECEMBER MATTER. I promise that EVERYONE in your house will thank you!
