Don’t miss this massive opportunity to be ahead of your health goals as the new decade starts.
You will learn a lot about yourself when you are faced with every imaginable situation where a binge or a bender is appropriate. In other words, you will be able to compile a list of red flags or improvement areas to work on.
This person, this activity, that venue each lend themselves to excess. Now I can troubleshoot each scenario one by one.
You can never do this January because everyone’s gone back to doing their own thing, and these events are no longer available for analysis.
Know Who Matters
When you decide to do something outside of the norm, people get upset. It’s not personal. People see themselves as better than you in one way and when you do something that is “better” than them, (such as eating healthily over the holiday period) you are shattering their image of themselves.
These people will encourage you to break your goals with excuses like “You’re not living,” “You’re being extreme,” “Be kind to yourself.” What they’re actually saying is, “I feel insecure when you are successful.”
So when you declare that you’re keeping it clean, watch out for people who don’t dig that. What they’re actually telling you is that they think they are better than you. Smile and wave…..
Let’s say you have two work functions, four social dinners, one week holiday with family and friends, a big celebration meal and a bender on New Year. You’re looking at fifteen events that could derail you. If you get through fifteen events in quick succession, where you would have been tempted to eat filth, you would have built some serious mental strength and resolve.
The next time you would have faced that kind of temptation, is in the April holidays (in South Africa, at least). You will have the mindset of “If I can make it through the holidays, I can make it through anything.”
Have More Fun
Have you ever heard anyone say they felt really good after eating and drinking for the month of December? If you go easy on the wheat, sugar, refined carbs and dairy (for some), you will have more energy, a clearer head and you will sleep better. Fact.
More energy and better sleep will make you more tolerant of your kids, better equipped to deal with whatever family politics rear their head, but most importantly, more excited about taking the family adventure, the morning beach walk or the team hike.
Get the Unfair Advantage
In January when everyone is trying to remember their New Year’s resolutions, you won’t need one. You can just carry on as normal with less pressure and more practice under your belt.
You will come into the office, the home, the school term, or wherever you go after holidays, with a clear head and possibly a smaller pair of pants – ready to kill.
One More Thing – Break the Pattern
If you’ve been peaking and troughing in and out of healthy eating your whole life, this is an opportunity to break the pattern. A new year presents many challenges and opportunities, but your health should not be something that you swing in and out of. If you intend on being healthy for the rest of your life, you will have another holiday and those events and people are going to be there.
How long do you want to wait before developing a way to be unshakable in those situations?
