Living a healthy lifestyle means being flexible.
It’s not about feeling guilty or deprived. Instead, it’s VALUE-driven and is based on your personal feelings and beliefs. It’s something you are committed to – it’s not just a fad.
And in the case of a healthy lifestyle, those values are all about supporting and improving your health.
Taking this approach is incredibly liberating.
That means you can choose to enjoy your secret family sweet potato pie recipe and not to have the store-bought sickly sweet iced sugar cookies at the office (seriously, gross!).
Or you can get outside and enjoy some fresh air by taking a walk outside with your family/friends/yourself instead of watching another episode of your latest Netflix binge.
The point is that “all-or-nothing” thinking sets you up for being “good” or “bad.”
It’s not black and white. It’s not about being perfect … it’s about making space for your health and well-being.
Your best asset this holiday season has nothing to do with willpower or your ability to stick with strict rules.
Instead, it’s about having a flexible mindset … and making your lifestyle a priority, with some space to enjoy your favorite traditions!
That means you’ll feel fantastic during the holiday season … and also feel pretty great in January when you don’t have to “start over.”
