Every year I hear so many people complaining about the holiday season, the amount of food and drinks we "have" to consume, and how everyone just feels tired, stressed, and weighed down.
I myself used to get so anxious around the holidays, and board this viscous cycle train every single year. I would insanely prep myself for the holidays by exercising like a maniac beforehand, and go on super strict diets. I would deprive myself of everything, so I could enjoy the eating and drinking during the holidays. It meant I deserved it. I would literally train my butt off, just so that I would deserve to put it back on again.
Of course this backfired in so many ways; the foods I ate made me feel exhausted all the time, which actually meant I wasn't really able to enjoy myself. Because I wasn't focusing on nutrient dense food during the holidays, my immune system would shut down, and at least for part of the time I would end up sick in bed feeling sorry for myself. And of course I would gain much more weight than I had originally lost, meaning I would start the New Year with shame and guilt, and a deserpate need to diet and exercise like a maniac again.
A while ago I got tired of starting every New Year with insane New Year's resolutions, just do "undo" the damage from the holidays. Over the years, I have come up with many strategies and rituals to make sure I get through the holidays without stress, sickness, or weight gain.
Now I have compiled all my tips and tricks into an easy-to-read guidebook, so that you, too, can make it through the holidays stress free and healthy. Come and join me for a guilt free holiday time this year.
