It is one day
As the time approaches, don’t stress about the holiday meals and snacks before you get to it. It is one day. Your wellness journey doesn’t hang on what you eat on Christmas Eve, Christmas day and New Year’s, but on what you eat and how you stay active the other 362 days. Work your plan, pace yourself, rest and take time to focus on those around the table, not what’s on the table.
Prayer: Jesus, thank you for this season to celebrate you with our loved ones. So much of this journey is our mindset and we ask that you transform our minds to focus on being more like You, loving and serving others, and building relationships. We know as we do this, the temptation to use food to satisfy our emotional needs will fade. Remind us of what’s important and of the good choices you are helping us make.
