What if you looked at wellness differently? What goes around comes around. You set the traditions; the habits that fuel your every day.
This is your day to see all the possibilities. It’s like unboxing the ornaments, untangling the lights, and fluffing the stockings.
Your wellness is based on traditions passed down throughout your family. Experiences have shaped your tastebuds. Lifestyle has dictated your schedule. Beliefs have formed your expectations.
So what do you treasure most during the Christmas season?
I can think of so many different things that light up my heart. Each Christmas tree has a story based on where the tree became a part of our lives. We’ve moved so many times, trees tell stories. Surely, you can’t leave out the Christmas wreaths. Oh, how many doors they have hung upon over the years.
Then, the ornaments share the good news of what each child brought to us throughout the years. Stars from Christmas pageants, snowmen from classrooms, the nativity from lightbulbs. You’ll have to ask my oldest about that project. But believe it or not, we still have that and the bulbs aren’t broken.
Christmas is built on stories shared over the years based on one belief; the birth of Jesus Christ. Within those beliefs are traditions created to remember this important time in our history.
When you look at your wellness journey, it too is built on stories shared over the years. You were raised a certain way with influences as to your activities, eating habits, and the people around you helped to create an environment that set you on your wellness journey.
For some, those are awesome traditions. Ones you want to keep for a lifetime.
For others, the traditions of health are not real good ones. The traditions become more of a burden.
Where are you in your traditions for your wellness?
What belief do you carry that sustains goodness or attracts badness?
You have the opportunity to decorate your life the way you know you need to.
Give yourself the present of wellness every day. Decorate your life with hope!
The K.I.S.S. ~ Decorate your life with hope!
Earlier, I mentioned Christmas wreaths. Each one is so unique, decorated for a particular season on a specific door. Think of how there is no beginning and no end to a wreath. It just comes and goes, round and round.
So does your wellness journey. It’s a wreath with no beginning or end. You get to choose what you want on it; goodness or badness. It’s a continuation; a journey of a belief shared throughout the years with morsels of sweat and good treats.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! You get to choose what traditions you want; the habits that fuel your every day.
So let’s decorate your life with hope!
- What ornaments will brighten your days? What will give you a boost in your day? For example, drinking lots of water or more than you currently doing. Maybe it’s eating more fresh fruits and vegetables.
- What color lights will you use? What will sustain your energy? More intentional movement. Maybe it’s stretching more.
- What bow will make you sparkle? That’s the motivation. That’s your belief.
What goes around comes around. The wreath has no beginning or end. You have a choice to choose what you want to do. You matter!!!
As you prepare for the Christmas and holiday celebrations, remember what you are creating. A tradition to fuel your life!
“Be present. Be incredible. Be YOU!!!”
