How to have a truly Happy Holidays.
The craziness is upon us, and sometimes its feels as if you are not having a Happy Holiday. Its tough! Travel, short work weeks, long weekends with family, feeling like you are bleeding money, etc,etc,etc. Tough to squeeze in happiness.
Generally when you receive an email from somebody in the Health and Fitness field during this time they will tell you about how people gain an average of 6 lbs during the holiday’s. And how to combat that with a positive mindset, of moderation, water, walks with the family is essential. I know because I have done it! And all that is this is true, but I want to talk about what this Holiday time really is good for. Its about giving thanks. And not just on Thanksgiving. Having a truly Happy Holidays is about taking stock in the wonderful things in your life and being TRULY BEING grateful for it.
How To Truly Be Grateful And Have A Happy Holidays.
The easiest way to have a Happy Holidays is to give thanks. With all the “too do’s” and being pulled this way and that way it is easy to lose sight of the wonderfulness that is right in front of us.
Giving thanks can be done a number of ways:
- At night before you go to bed
- Taking some time on the weekend to sit down and write out everything that you are thankful for.
- When you start to feel overwhelmed and possibly angry.
- Give yourself a designated amount of time to build your gratitude i.e “The 30 days of gratitude.”
Or use this list to stimulate your imagination to design your own gratitude program.
How I am going to have a Happy Holiday.
I am going to “eat my own dog food.” I am grateful first and foremost for my family. I am grateful for my friends. I am grateful that we are in Santa Fe and it has been good to us. And I am grateful for you. All of you who have supported me and continue to support me. I love what I am doing and I love that I get to not only to continue, but to grow. Thank you
