#71: Holiday Strategies for Anosmia, Hyposmia & Parosmia
In this episode, Frauke sits down with acquired anosmic Anthea Bull and parosmic Anne Heloise Dautel to discuss strategies for making it through the holiday season.
An episode geared for both the non-smelling and smelling, this conversation provides insights and understanding to help make everyone's time spent with family and friends as joyful as possible.
We discuss ways to prepare for the holidays both mentally and practically, what to do if going to someone else's house vs. hosting yourself, as well how to make the most out of going to a restaurant.
Anthea and Anne also share their strategies for making holiday meals enjoyable (and tolerable), and reveal what drinks they go to, and avoid.
They also tells us smellers how we can support them best.
This episode is filled with tips and tricks for making the holidays a memorable and positive experience for all.
