Wellness during the Christmas Season

With the Holiday Season approaching, you may be one of many starting to find that there is never time.  Shopping, entertaining, cooking, family visiting from out of town.  There is no way you can find time for yourself.

Unfortunately, many put their self-care on the back burner during this Season.  Even  more so if you have not  bought into the importance of exercise and good nutrition 100%.  Yes, 100% buy in.  You see, once you are 100% sold on the importance of exercise and nutrition, it becomes easier to continue even during the Holidays.  But if your commitment is not total, it becomes easier to let go when friends or family say something like " Oh, you can go tomorrow, or eating pizza just for once, we don't see you so often, or just taste my cake, it's so good, watch the late movie with me, just this once... please".

Coaching challenge:  remember how bad you feel when you don't eat right or when you lack sleep.  Then remember how good it feels after a workout or a good swim.  Then decide how you want to feel and make a commitment to yourself, in writing, of how you will put it in action.
