It may be cheesy, but I get almost too excited for the New Year. It’s like Christmas again, but for the future of the next 365 days. It’s a free slate, a new start. New Year’s is our opportunity to dream BIG for the future and make a fresh plan to get there. I love having permission to go float among the clouds. I plan where I want to be at the finish of my life, where I want to be 10 years out, 5 years out and what I need to do in the next year for my personal (and professional) success.
Would you like the secret to actually having a happy holiday this year? To not spending significant amounts of time curled up on the floor drinking heavily spiked eggnog while hiding in a DIY wrapping paper fortress (although you can do some of that too, if that’s what you’re into)?
Lean in close…
I’m not refusing to tell you, I’m saying that’s the secret.
Many of my clients find the holiday season to be a challenging time of year, I completely get it. There have been times in my life where I have found them challenging as well. Years ago, the holidays would be a time of over-indulgence in food and alcohol, and a significant increase in inflammation and my waistline.
