Why do we fall into the trap of putting so much pressure on ourselves to pull off a Martha Stewart-esque holiday? Why do we end up feeling guilty, anxious, or sad when festivities don’t go as planned? How can we set these unrealistic expectations aside and embrace/enjoy the present moment?
It’s important to shift our mentality when the holiday season arrives and actually take a break from all the planning and organizing. Surrender to your usual daily routine. Relieve all expectations and pressures you are putting on yourself.
The point of your holiday is to revitalize both mind and body. In order to leave your holiday feeling rejuvenated, you need to make rest a priority – no, in fact it needs to be a commitment.
Perhaps you are the kind of person who does not know how to sit back and relax. You are too used to have so much to do…I get that. What you need to do is schedule in rest time like you do with a meeting. I believe people are not RESTING enough and it is not doing good things to our health. You know my mantra: a rested body is a healthy body.
If you prioritize rest, you will find yourself able to connect with your body. You will also be able to embrace the present moment…special time with family and friends. See, the point of the festivities is not to stress out about creating the perfect meal…it’s about being with loved ones and celebrating life.
I want to empower you to make good choices, every day. I want you to enhance your understanding of health and nutrition. I'm committed to making sure you live the best life. Because you deserve it. Are you ready to start feeling great?
