Christmas is not known as a season of balance. It tends to be about excess, decadence and over indulgence.
Personally I think that’s OK.
Being balanced all the time can get a bit bland – and maybe a bit of unbalance is sometimes required in a balanced life in order to balance things even more….
But here’s the thing about excess – you have to stop it before it starts to become normal.
I hope you’ve eaten, drunk and been Merry, but it’s time to thinks about redressing the balance.
I have a few friends who are going to be dryathletes in January – They’ve taken the pledge to steer clear of alcohol for a month. This is a great way of supporting your body and mind returning to a more healthy routine. Whether you have a problem with it or not, alcohol is a poison. You really do yourself a favour by keeping clear of it.
I don’t drink much as it is so going dry for January is fairly non eventful for me. I’m going to try to redress the balance of eating too much meat and sugar over Christmas. January is going to be about fruits and vegetables. Soups, stews and salads for me! I have to say I’m rather looking forward to it.
Have a think about what you may have been overindulging in and what you can do in January to help find your balance.
