Bringing balance to the festive season... and NO I’m not talking about the doTERRA Balance essential oil🙄
I’m talking about meal times at Christmas!
Meal times are not all about the food we consume, but about the company we share it with, and Christmas time is all about enjoying the company of friends and family around the table, or BBQ without feeling the guilt of eating that piece of bloody chocolate cake you have being eyeing off! 😋
The joy of spending time with loved ones and friends over the festive season may be just as powerful to your diet than sitting there negating over the side effects of stuffing that chocolate cake into your mouth.
This does not mean you go for it and eat yourself into a food coma , just don’t pressure yourself either way. Take the time during the festive season to enjoy the moment, enjoy the food, drinks ( just try not to end up under the table in a state 🙄) enjoy the company.
Just remember when that big slab of chocolate cake or massive big fluffy pavlova comes out, just sit back, take a sip of water, breathe deeply and acknowledge to yourself why you really want a slice of that cake?
Whatever the decision is remember that everything will be ok 👍 We as humans don’t get sick from eating one slice of cake , we get sick from eating a slice of cake every day of the year!! So have a bit of Yin and Yang on an ongoing basis and don’t be too hard on yourself if you fall of that food wagon over the festive season.... just hop back on it in January. 😊 Enjoy the season, eat well, drink sensibly, laugh lots and enjoy life.... and eat that slice of cake!! 🍰🎄🐊🍹#festive #christmas #family #food #cake #enjoylife #healthylifestyle #love #laugh
