Happy Christmas Eve and welcome to week 4 and our final week of our guide to the holiday series! I hope this series has been helpful with getting through the holidays. You’ve received three challenges, three recipes and three workouts. This week you’ll be receiving your last one of each. Christmas is tomorrow… Can you believe that? I hope by now you have all your gifts, I hope they’re wrapped and I hope you’re shopping is done!
I know, I know. It’s Christmas Eve! Let’s jump into week 4!
This week’s challenge is to simply “be there” with your family! Step away from your phones, social media, video games and tv and really spend the time with your families. Year by year you will notice things starting to change, members won’t always be there, some will spend the time traveling, some will work, and that’s just life. Enjoy the time you have while being all together, because before you know it, it won’t be the same.
Your challenge for this year is to take the time to enjoy it. Take the time to slow down, go on that vacation, spoil yourself and your family, make the move, take the job. Pay it forward when you can. Show the world the love that it deserves.
