Christian Healthy Holidays
Taking the fear out of the Christmas cookie!
Congregation love you so much that they bring you a lot of Christmas goodies? Try to resist and yet there they are… Never fear! Support is here! Thanksgiving marks the start of our FREE Christian Healthy Holiday Event! We will transform our holiday season together and start the New Year out right!
Do you want to join us? We can all do it our own way. All you have to do is set goals and be accountable for your actions and progress at least once a week. We will also post weekly Advent prayers in the FB group.
Goals should include:
- Nutrition (adding in at least one healthy food per week, and we will give you easy ways to do that!)
- Exercise (a minimum of 30 minutes 5 days a week, and you can do fun things to get there. It doesn’t have to be in a 30 min. block!)
- Gratitude (take the time to be grateful for at least 3 things in your life daily)
- Giving (challenge yourself to give without expectation of reciprocation once daily, and it does not have to involve money, in fact, we hope it will be a gift of yourself!)
Don’t be hard on yourself this holiday season. Our goal is to simply add in one healthy whole food each week. Enjoy your holiday traditions and don’t eat beyond what feels good to you.
Resolve to get at least 30 minutes of good healthy exercise in each day (with one or two days of rest). You will feel better through the holidays. Exercise is good for depression, weight maintenance and your general health.
List 3 things that you are grateful for each day. By focusing on gratitude, we see our lives from a different perspective. Instead of seeing what is going wrong, we see the more important picture of what is right in our lives.
You don’t have to brag about your giving, but if someone gives and it turns out to be really special, share it with us. You may also want to include it as a part of your goal. In prior years, my goal was to give without cost; it does not have to be an expensive gift, just thoughtful and meaningful.
Do you know anyone who is struggling through the holidays? Invite them along!
