Day 10: 12 Days of Purposeful Wellness

Plan ahead

By now you probably know what’s ahead of you for the next three or four days.  Travelling, family and friends coming to visit, as well as all the food that will be available to you.  Take a few minutes and make some choices.  If you have turkey and dressing at one meal, focus on a less carb-heavy meal next time.  Really, you can have mashed potatoes just about any day of the year.  Maybe bypass some of the “standards” including rolls and butter and enjoy the foods you only have during the holidays.  Once you make some quality decisions, it will be easier to stick to the plan rather than sitting at that heavily-laden table with no plan at all. Keep in mind the other tips we’ve discussed here and plan to rest, have fun, focus on family, hydrate and worship God.

Make choices that keep you in balance as much as you are able

Prayer: Jesus, there is a lot ahead of us over the next few days and we really need Your help and guidance to make a plan that is manageable and will not leave us with regret when it’s time to pack the decorations away.  Remind us to choose joy in the planning and the executing of the plan so those around us can see that there is a difference in us, not only as they watch our food choices, but our faces and our attitudes.
