Make a Self-care Plan for the Holidays
Making healthy choices throughout the holiday season is challenging. Holidays are a busy time of giving, spending time with family, and celebrating with friends. We are bombarded with parties, tempting foods, and opportunities to eat too much. Oh, those cocktails, they are everywhere...
You need to make a plan.
MAKING COMMITMENTS TO YOURSELF AND KEEPING THEM always lead to positive results.
If you make a commitment today to take care of yourself NOW, you will better serve your community throughout the holiday season and into the new year.
If you don’t take care of yourself, your immune system doesn’t function properly.
Take time today, and write down what you’d like to see for the holidays.
Write down how you will specifically take care yourself this year. Here are some questions to get you started:
What kind of healthy snacks can you prepare to keep you from eating too much junk?
Which exercise routine will be easy for you to keep up?
Should you find work-out accountability partners?
What’s most important to YOU this holiday season? Say, “No,” to everything else.
The original intent of the holidays was to take a break. Instead, we speed up and live on junk fuel. Maybe it’s time to rethink how you do the holidays, and choose sanity and health.
Yours in Self-Care,
