If we’re being honest with ourselves, this particular month, we’re probably not going to get to our workouts as much as we’d like. We’ll also likely have a hard time sticking to our ideal eating plan. And our sleep schedule? Yeah, we can probably forget about that too.
But that sacrifice of self is what the holidays are all about: thinking outside of ourselves and being present with friends and family. Then we jump back in, full energy, on January 1st to reprioritize, and set personal goals for the New Year. There is a certain beauty in putting yourself aside this month, and giving your time freely and openly to others.
