The holiday pace can be maddening: Nonstop hustle & bustle, parties, events, writing Christmas cards, presents, wrapping, baking, entertaining, family visiting, etc.
As we all race through December, fun & festive can turn into complete exhaustion. Are you with me? I know you all are.
It is so important to take time to rest, recharge and protect our immune systems. Refueling means saying 'No' when you began to feel overwhelmed - doubling up on organic green juice - eating that extra organic kale salad with dinner - getting a good nights sleep - turning off technology - etc. People are eating more sugary sweets as well. Exchanging processed sugar for healthier choices such as Stevia in your coffee/tea or Manuku Honey is a teeny step that will serve your body well. There are so many small steps towards preserving your wellness so that you don't completely deplete your body this month. Right now is a good time to do a 'gut check' & see where you can scale back and fill that space (or your plate) with healthier decisions.
Are you carving time out in your busy holiday schedule to get quiet with God? Are you creating space for yourself to simply 'be'? Are you taking a step back to 'pause' and make goals for the coming year? I strongly encourage you not to leave your own wellness to the wayside during this season.
This week I'll be sharing a delicious new product I have discovered from the company, Futters Nut Butters. They make this Macadamia Butter (ONE INGREDIENT) and it's so yum (also a fab stocking stuffer)! So, you can look forward to that on Wednesday. And after that, I will be wrapping up Snapshots of Wellness with one 'finale' blog for the year!
Enjoy the week & take care of yourselves!
Created and curated by Kelly, Snapshots of Wellness encourages all of you to cultivate your 'joie de vivre': Compassion for Animals via food, style & lifestyle.
