How To Thrive -Not Just Survive- The Holidays

Words matter.Words shape perceptions.


Perceptions shape intentions. Intentions shape just about everything.


Around this time of year, the phrase surviving the holidays begins to pop up everywhere: blog posts, news bits, etc.We hear and read about this often: How to survive holiday parties, family gatherings and a busy season filled with events and festivities.


And let’s be honest, these survival guides are usually aimed at what we should eat and drink over the holiday season—less, usually. Or more and then less, to make up for the “more” you ate during the holidays. It’s hard to keep track. There is never any real advice given. Eat less, or eat big one time. What does eat big even mean?


Leaving aside the peculiar notion of survival as nutritional deprivation, this strikes me as a pretty rough way to treat yourself. What are we surviving, really? Have you ever "not survived" from what you ate over the holidays? If you're a ghost and reading this, let me know!


What if we flipped the script?


Thrive through the holidays.


Thrive by eating delicious food that makes you feel full and warm. Don't just eat all the holiday treats.


Thrive by doing awesome workouts powered by that great food. You know when your holiday parties are. Plan around them. Make sure you find a time to workout rather than just not workout that day.


Shoot, thrive through a long winter’s nap after a delicious meal or night out.What if we let the things we love to do—being with friends and family, eating well, moving with abandon and resting at the right times—take us through this holiday season?


What if we thrived?
