How to Thrive Through the Holiday Season!

How to Thrive Through the Holiday Season!

Did you miss the webinar on how to THRIVE through the holidays this year? No problem, re-listen to the tips and techniques that I use and make this your most successful season! Check out the list below!

1.) Choose your battles

  • Plan what parties you need to go
  • Say NO to excess parties and going out – flex your NO muscle
  • Saying no means you’re saying yes to your goals
  • Ask what you can bring and make it healthy!
  • Eat before you go
  • Drink lots of water
  • SET YOUR INTENTIONS AHEAD OF TIME! Am I going to drink or indulge? How much?

2.) Keep a routine

  • Number 1 reason people feel stress is because they are out of a routine.
  • Have a reg workout routine and plan it
  • Find a workout you can do when you are in a jam and memorize it – make sure you can do it anywhere
  • Just keep moving! A body in motion stays in motion.

3.) Find time for yourself

  • With company, family and more people everywhere, more work, more traffic, etc. we get stressed easier
  • Give yourself more time to get around
  • Plan quiet time or alone time
  • Find 5 minutes to meditate
  • Close your eyes and visualize your goals

4.) Keep your goals present

  • Don’t just write this time of year off. You can have a huge head start
  • You don’t have to be perfect
  • This is a lifestyle so begin by practicing
  • You will get better

5.) Surround yourself by a community of supportive people

  • Many of you will have to seek this out.
  • Yoga
  • Ask people

6.) Spend time giving back with others

  • Volunteering
  • Bell ringing
  • Immerse yourself in a good cause

7.) Save money by making gifts

  • Mason Jars with favorite recipes attached and some of the ingredients inside
  • Make your own sugar scrubs and put a nice saying on the outside
  • Make a jar full with 30 days of why they rock
  • Tell people you don’t want gifts this year and sponsor a family together instead or donate to a charity
  • Draw names an only exchange with a couple people

8.) Create new traditions during the Holidays.

  • Board games, walks, cards, caroling, sledding, skiing, snow ball fights etc.

9.) Shift your attitude to gratitude

  • Be grateful for what you have
  • Each night write down what you are grateful for that day

10.) Enjoy, be present and keep it in perspective.

  • If you feel restricted, have a little something that makes you feel like your indulging
  • There is no such thing as perfect
  • If you know you can have something it’s no longer off limits and the temptation is less.
  • It’s just a day, the only pressure we can feel is what we put on ourselves
  • Remember to make it about togetherness and enjoying instead of the food and presents
