Life is chaotic and it’s hard to balance everything at once.
She really put it into perspective that you take a step back, breathe, do what you can and you can take care of the rest tomorrow – but most importantly – don’t be so hard on yourself because you couldn’t do everything in one day!
Our American way is to be on the go, go, go, to work a full-time career while trying to fit in social events, family time, exercise, healthy eating and still take time for yourself between meetings, kids and other life chaos. With a kid on the way just typing all of that out makes me stressed and overwhelmed.
What I like to educate people on and coach them on is to have balance. No one is perfect and I want to help you all ring in year 2020 by living the last 90 days in 2019 as you would your first 30 in 2020 to help keep you moving in a healthy/positive direction.
I was inspired to host this challenge as it was started by Rachel Hollis in 2019. Let’s end 2019 on a healthy note and ring in 2020 together!
You don’t need to be a superhero and do everything in one day. But, if you focus on a few things for yourself on a daily basis you will have more energy to live a happier, healthier and well-balanced life during the stressful holidays.
With the holidays right around the corner, it is so easy to drop all the healthy habits that you have achieved in the last 9 months and to just say the heck with it, it’s the holidays only to regret it once January 1 smacks you in the face.
I am guilty of it!
That doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun during the holidays. Aim for the 80/20 rule. Stick to healthy habits 80% of the time but allow 20% of unhealthy habits if it helps us stay on track. This will help us to not throw your 2019 progress out the window to only have to start back over in 2020.
