coach jen never yells. i wouldn't. if there was a lot of yelling, maybe i could get more attention and say, next time, try this, see how it works. let's come back and do it again. >> that sounds good. i'm sure you're hoping to see a lot of other women in the nfl in this position you're in. >> absolutely. i think what most people don't realize is how many women are really great in the game of football. you know, i played in women league for 15 years and a lot of and love the game of football and with the right training could absolutely step up and hopefully i'll see them on the nfl sidelines and the goal is it create as new normal where it's no longer history to see any minority, whether it's a woman or anything that you're not used to seeing, where it is a new normal. sarah thomas, one of my friends

anxiety. dr. joshua weiner is here to discuss what people have to deal with this time of year and a lot of things can contribute to this kind of stress. are there any top items that you see? >> the one i hear most frequently in my practice is spending time with family. it's unfortunate, right? for a lot of people, being around family is a high-stress situation, particularly if relationship that they have, maybe somebody they try to avoid the rest of the year but -- and then it's somebody they have to be with over the christmas holiday. >> are there some people more prone to sort of deal with or not be able to deal with the holiday stress very well? >> a couple of people i think have a particularly tough time. there are those people who have social anxiety disorders. these are people who get really, really nervous in any type of
well, the holiday season is going to be tough for them because you're more spoegs in general during this time of year. those people tend to struggle. the other people are people who have lost a loved one in recent times. if it's any time where somebody has lost somebody in the last year and this is the first time going through christmas or new year's without the loved ones, those people will have a difficult time as well. >> i know you have some ideas, tips from people who have to deal with holiday stress, about how they can do that. f invite a friend to your family gathering. >> right. >> here's the reason. everybody tends to be on their best behavior when they are around people that they are not as comfortable with. right? so if you're around the family and everybody is comfortable, people are going to be more likely to act like jerks. if you invite that friend over and they can spend some time, maybe that person who would otherwise say something kind of rude is going to, you know, bite their tongue a little bit because they want to make sure
front of the person they don't know that well. and it's just a buffer. it's something new to introduce. >> you don't just show up with somebody. that adds to -- >> yes, always better to say, hey, i've got this buddy, this friend. look, friends have family, too. maybe you can invite them over or their families over for dessert or after dinner drinks or something like that. you're little bit with your family. >> the next tip you say is be willing to break with tradition. >> right. and this is simple. just because something has been done a certain way over the years, if it causes stress and anxiety, preparing this big meal for a lot of people, it doesn't mean that you have to do it the same way. go out to dinner, buy preprepared meals, have a potluck. there are ways to decrease your stress. >> i think that there are people
want dinner to be this way and cooked this well. don't allow yourself to fall into that trap. >> if you can. you can't help everybody. some people are going to be the way they are going to be. if somebody is willing to try to do something differently, this might be a way to decrease their stress. >> and one of the hardest things for a lot of people to do is to just say no? >> just say no. lots of people want different things from you. it's always good to be able to i can. if you really have a hard time saying no at the moment, say, let me think about it. the answer is going to be no but i'll let you know for sure. >> and then say no. >> at least that way a person has had time to think about it and not as hard for them. >> good advice. dr. weiner, thank you. >> my pleasure. the mgm national harbor finally opens.
