Tis the season to overindulge…. more sweets, more lattes, more late nights, more of everything. The kids are out of school for a couple of weeks so the pressure to do homework and study is off. It’s the time of year people let go of their self-discipline and act as if every day is a holiday. This time of year many people take vacation, often extended ones. With so many people missing at work, the focus for the few working is to just keep the boat floating. Isn’t that what we do too when we overindulge? We just do what it takes to keep ourselves floating?
I’m one of the active participants in over indulging and ready to get back to self-discipline. We have a few more days though of holiday cheer and I’m thinking about how to leverage the time and make my last few days of 2011 count. I’ll start by getting back on my “healthy eating plan” and I’ll get moving (maybe not a run, but at least a walk) and I’ll take advantage of the quiet time at work to clean out my office. I know next week and the start of the New Year will bring back the pressures I’ve been missing and my plan is to get ahead of it. Do you succumb to over indulgence? If so, how do you get back on track?
