Then you’ve got to start now.
Planning, that is.
Ugh! I know. I said the “P” word. Fun just left the house.
But we plan so we can have fun and still feel amazing.
Women tell me that in November, it all starts to go to hell. So, with my clients we develop strategies so they don’t deprive themselves but also don’t demolish their progress.
Because they want to enjoy the holidays. And they want to eat cookies.
I bet you do, too.
Start with a look back at recent holidays. Where did it go off the rails? What are your triggers? Why did you over-eat? Or have a few too many adult beverages? Approach it like a researcher, not a judge and jury. Promise?
By knowing the kinds of situations and scenarios that present challenges to you, decide how to prepare for them. Also consider how you want your holiday season to look and feel. What would make you smile through the next two months and on January 1?
We also need to keep in mind that the holidays will likely look different this year. We’ll be considering things we haven’t needed to before. Some temptations might be greater. Others less. Stress may come from unexpected places.
But whether you’re stressed about spending time with your mother-in-law or stressed about staying at home, the tools to deal with both are the same.
You may also be surprised by unexpected blessings from our current situation. As you encounter them, think about how to savor them. Is there a lesson you want to take into future holidays? Or simply into daily life?
So, think about having your pants fit in January. Think about starting the year already on your game. Feeling healthy. Strong. Amazing.
Sound fanciful? Not at all.
