Welcome to our first week of your guide to the holidays!
Challenge of the week
This week your challenge is to to focus on yourself, focus on doing things that make you happy. Every day this week, do one thing for yourself. These daily tasks don’t need to be complicated, they can be as simple as sitting outside and enjoying the view or getting your favorite coffee. During the holidays we tend to forget to take time for ourselves and let ourselves go both mentally and physically. This holiday season remember to take care of yourself.

Overnight oats! This is a yummy breakfast or an easy prepared snack!
- 1/3 cup Oats

- 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon Agave
