I have to admit that I am not the hugest fan of the Christmas and New Year period. It always seems so….manic. It is really hard not to get drawn into the the craziness of over-spending, over-giving, over-eating, and over-partying.
Don’t get me wrong, I love being able to spend time with those I love at this time of year, but I just wish that it wasn’t laden with so much stress, that there wasn’t the over-tone of angst to go along with what should just be a fun and relaxing time of year.
I was thinking about this the other day, and it got me thinking about what we need in order to stay sane and healthy over the silly season.
I believe that it all comes down to having people to keep you accountable and having support along the way. I mean, how hard is it to resist the delicious yet sugar-laden treats that abound at this time of year when you are being urged by those around you to indulge. How difficult is it to say no to another Christmas Cosmo Cocktail or no to another party invite when it feels like you are a solitary person trying to stay focussed on your health.
Don’t get me wrong, it is ok to indulge a little bit at this time of year- but the problems arise when indulging is every day and you totally lose focus on your health, you get too busy and stressed to focus on self-care and you decide it is easier to give in and be one of the (unhealthy) masses.
So, I have decided to provide a way for you, my loyal tribe, to get the accountability, support and motivation you need to thrive, and not just survive this holiday season.
I am offering- completely free- a Happy Holidays program. All you have to do is sign up here to get access to the Secret Facebook group where all the action is going to happn for the next 6 weeks starting from Monday 25th November.
I’ve designed this so that it is not complicated or time-consuming- all you have to do is write and share your goals with everyone in the group, check in at least once a week to get support and motivation from me and the rest of the group members, and then see how much easier it is to stay focussed and accountable over the holidays.
It is meant to be fun, easy and do-able. The more people we have involved, the better! Let’s make this is a holiday one that is revolutionary. Start your new year feeling fabulous, not frazzled and flabby from having a crazy, food and alcohol fuelled period that leaves you feeling worse for wear.
I am going to be here for you, supporting and guiding. Joining this program gets you access to FREE coaching from me (usually worth $75 an hour!) as well as the chance to connect with other like-minded people in this community.
You really have nothing to lose. Will you join us? Also get your friends and family involved!
