Christmas is the busiest holiday for most people. It is a celebration rooted in a happy historical event; this is usually the holiday where reunions happen. Of course, the more gatherings, the more food, and enjoyment you are exposed to.
You get tons of meals around, and more than half of them are bound to be leftovers for pre-heating in the following days. These meals are not usually healthy, but they can be very delicious. Many of the secret recipes and traditional dishes will be showcased on the table for everyone to appreciate while eating.
When things are going great, the next thing you know is you are at your fourth bottle of wine. You participate in whatever fun activities are being conducted and continue to indulge in light alcohol. However, some had it worse. Before the gathering gets to be fun, there are so many preparations made before Christmas Day.
What’s the point here? How lovely the event may be, the following day will always be an awakening. This means that you have to do self-care after eating unhealthily or get burned out by preparing gifts and decorations. One convincing ‘trick’ for you to be encouraged is to think of December 26 as a preview of New Year’s Day.
This means that after overindulging in a Christmas gathering, start over the following day as if you are starting a new year at the right step. Proceed to your self-care activities and avoid self-sabotage. If you have what it takes to keep it going, then your chances of reinventing yourself on New Year’s Day can be high.
