How are you feeling about the holidays this year? I talk about holiday planning year after year, and every year is a little different.
The holidays give us a chance to practice the things we say we really want in our lives: boundaries, going toward what we want instead of what we think we have to or are supposed to do, flexing our emotional muscle.
This time of year is also a time to think about the upcoming year and what we really want—how we want to be at home, in our relationships, with our bodies, at work, in our business. It’s a time to dream, and at the same time, I found that the holidays have fought my dream.
- Do you want energy, but eat and drink to oblivion? And then feel the need to get your life back on January 1?
- Do you have big business goals to wrap up the year AND want to make magic for you kids who are home for two weeks? (and no plan to make either happen?)
This is the time to take impeccable care of yourself. Yes, you. I know, you expect to take care of everyone else during the holidays, but it’s time to change that story. Your Best Holiday Yet is going to help you do that.
We’re going to build a bridge between an amazing holiday season and your best year ever.
Here in the U.S., Thanksgiving kicks off the holiday season, so this is a good time to start practicing, not me first, but me too.
I’m sure you have a picture of a beautiful Thankgiving in your head. The people, the decor, the food … but how does that actually make you feel?
Start by asking: How do I want to feel?
Erase what you know about the holiday and start your planning with what would feel good? Think about who you want to be with, what you want to eat, and how you want the day to flow.
I talk about exactly how I revamped my Thanksgiving years ago and the freedom and joy I felt on that day. And our holiday continues to evolve, changing year to year, but I have a framework that helps us stay focused on the feeling we want from the day.
You can choose what you want to do and what you want to eat to make you feel fabulous.
In this episode, I’m talking specifically about the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, but there is a lot you can apply to other upcoming holidays. And because Thanksgiving focuses around food, I’ve made you a Thanksgiving food planner.
