It’s that time of year where there will be plenty of opportunities to indulge. My secret for enjoying the holiday season and all the guilty pleasures that come along with it is easy. I do whatever is going to make me feel good and I focus my energy on the positive versus the negative. I feel good about that piece of pie because it was exactly what I wanted. I don’t shame myself for having seconds on Thanksgiving but instead practice gratitude for being lucky enough to have a meal to enjoy. I also make it a point to not participate in those after holiday discussions where people share all that they ate and how bad they feel about it. I don’t need to feel guilt because I am doing nothing wrong. When you feel good about your decisions you are rewarded with an equally good outcome (i.e. no increase on that scale).
It has worked for me thus far so I challenge you to do the same this year!
What is your favorite holiday indulgence?
P.S. This post is meant to promote positive thinking and I am in no way taking responsibility if you decide to eat the entire pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving! 😉
