Our words shape our perceptions. Our perceptions shape our intentions. Our intentions shape just about everything about us.
Around this time of year, we hear people talk a lot about “surviving the holidays.” How to survive holiday parties, how to survive family gatherings, how to survive a busy and stressful season filled with events and festivities.
These survival guides are usually aimed at stress management, and what we should eat or drink over the holiday season. And rightfully so! If you are mindful of your fitness and nutrition, the holiday season can be a difficult time to stay on track, between extra activities on the calendar, and treats in abundance.
But it strikes me that in all our talk about surviving, we’ve forgotten how to enjoy the holidays!
What if we flipped the script?
Thrive through the holidays.
Thrive by filling yourself with mostly nourishing food that fuels your body and some extra special treats that feed your soul.
Thrive by doing awesome workouts at Prowess with friends.
What if, instead of approaching the holidays with fear, we let the things we love to do—being with friends and family, eating well, moving with intention, and resting at the right times—take us through this holiday season?
