DULUTH, MN. (CBS 3 Duluth) -With summer vacation here, that can mean visits with in-laws, extended family, and more.

And while it can be a lot of fun to connect with those we love, it also can be challenging with difficult family members.

In this week’s Eye on Lifestyle, Nikki Karnowski of Metamorphosis Coaching, Consulting, and Training shares tips for making the most of things.

According to Karnowski, we have the power to choose what we want to happen by giving things a little bit of forethought.

Some tips for avoiding conflict are:

  • Choose Not To Take Things Personally
  • Stay Clear of Heated Subjects
  • Take a Walk or Do Some Deep Breathing

Karnowski also says setting hard boundaries with those difficult family members can be beneficial in avoiding stressful situations.
