Welcome to Day 22 and the last Wellness Wednesday before the holidays kick in full tilt. I don’t know about you, but I have plans pretty much every night between now and the 25th. Some nights, even more than one plan. Life is full, y’all. Today I made it home by 7:30pm, I enjoyed a bowl of the soup I made yesterday and I got to wrapping the presents I need prior to Christmas Eve. I did not wrap the presents that I need on Christmas Eve. I gave myself that grace. And that’s what today’s post is all about – routine and grace.
It’s the first Wednesday of December and what does that mean? That means it’s time for a Wellness Wednesday. And, hoo boy, do we all need to remember to focus on wellness during December. The holidays are (to quote a yoga instructor I had once) a very full time of year. There are demands on our time, finances, emotional energy… no wonder we might need a reminder to centre ourselves sometimes. Which brings me to the core, the thesis, the theme of this post. No is a complete sentence.
Um…. the jury is out on that one. But I more so meant it symbolically. When have we ever cared about correct grammar on this blog?
Does anyone remember in July when I confidently announced that I had set a goal not to eat out for the entire month? No? Well, that makes sense because that goal was wildly unsuccessful and, naturally, I never spoke of it again. And why was it unsuccessful? Because let me tell you, y’all.. What I needed to do was add something.
