As the countdown rolls on, I'm sure you are feeling the pressure of the holidays. There are lots of parties to attend, presents to shop for, baked goods to avoid. But take a deep breath, you are not alone.
In a perfect world, I could say that you would still be able to make long lasting, sustainable changes this time of year. The reality is, there are clients I am working with that are and do. But, I'm not saying it's for everyone. Most of the time, people are tying a knot and hanging on for dear life until the new year rolls on. If that's you, it's okay. I'm not here to judge or bully you through the holidays, that's just not my style. But, I am going to share with you some easy swaps you can make between now and then that will make a big difference. Here are ways you can set yourself up for success, rather than failure this holiday season:
But, as you can see, with small, easy changes you will make a BIG difference in your self and your health. Plus, once you get used to some of those swaps listed above, you will never go back! I prefer the latter on the ones I mentioned now that I've changed my palate. It works, it just takes time.
Whatever you decide to swap from a nutrition perspective, do not compromise on what this season is truly supposed to be about: sharing love, compassion, joy and good thoughts for the next year to come. I think now more than ever we need more people coming together, as opposed to the opposite.
I hope that this holiday season is merry & bright for you and your entire family. I wish you all health, happiness, and prosperity as we enter into 2015.
Remember to hold your loved ones tight, as life is very short and can change in an instant.
In Peace & Joy,
