You know I am a big believer in being “in the moment,” right?
(easy… no. important… yes.)
It’s huge for helping you relieve stress, focus on what’s important, and get the most out of every day. But …
→ I HAVE AN IMPORTANT EXCEPTION.
And it has to do with something I hear EVERY SINGLE YEAR from my clients.
Pretend it’s January 1st.
How are you going to feel if you use the holidays as an excuse to put your health and wellness on the back burner?
And not just on the back burner …. but end up going BACKWARDS?
Did you know that the average person expects to gain SEVEN POUNDS over the holiday season?!
Pretty crazy stat.
Based on my experience as a coach, I can tell you how you’ll probably feel.
You’ll feel like you’ve lost ground on any progress … you’ll feel tired … more bloated … have more headaches… and, yes, you’ll probably feel regretful.
It’s not a good spot to be in.
The good news is that you can make a few small changes NOW so you don’t end up in the majority of people who let their health and fitness slide.
oh and NO JUDGMENT here… I know t’s NOT easy!
What it’s about is keeping things REALISTIC to keep yourself on track.
Which leads me to a little assignment for you.
Take two minutes right now … and think about how much time you can devote to your self-care through the holidays.
What can you REALISTICALLY commit to?
- Is it 3 x 30-minute workouts a week?
- An hour of meal prep twice a week?
- Can you commit to getting 7-8 hours of sleep each night?
- Staying hydrated?
- Choosing only your favorite treats (and leaving the rest for someone else)?
Whatever it is, schedule it in your planner and/or make a note of it wherever you see it.
Not only will you likely feel better and maybe have more energy, and sleep better, you just might also ENJOY the holiday season more … hard to believe but true. And I have seen this a lot!
And you’ll also build momentum to kick off 2022 strong, empowered, and in control.
SO … what specific actions are you going to commit to starting THIS WEEK?
And you know what?
Telling someone else makes it more likely that you’ll actually follow through (yup.. accountability helps!)
