It’s that time of year that I call holiday madness. It is so easy to slip into overachieving and the stress goes up and up and up. We have to-do lists longer than our arm, deadlines to meet, more obligations than usual, not enough time and we are exposed to holiday feasts and treats that cave our willpower. So we think something has to give and it is usually whatever time and strategies we have incorporated into our life that help us with being happy and healthy. This leaves us feeling guilty and sometimes resentful. Unfortunately, once we let go of a routine that keeps us happy and healthy it can be difficult to get back on track.
So, right now is the perfect time to join the Change 3 Challenge set a specific time to start and goals to help you either get back on track or take incremental steps to make some new changes or additions that you feel would make your life and your family life happier and healthier in 2016.Give yourself 5 minutes right now, let go of the to-do list and overachiever hat for a minute. Identify three things you would like to try, sign up for the Change 3 Challenge, and decide on a start date. And since you will be seeing a lot of family and friends during the holiday get them to join you in the challenge and pledge to support each other.
