I have holiday stress. It is not that I have been going to parties or making cookies. I just have not been focused on starting my new life style. I want to, but not enough to do it. Should I just wait until January first and get the New Years incentive?
Since you are feeling holiday stress, try to let it go. The birth of Jesus is the reason for the season. Happiness does not come from having things perfect. Do what you can comfortably. Focus on His love and spread that this Christmas.
You have a desire to have a healthier lifestyle now, do not put it off. I believe the ultimate in a healthy lifestyle includes holiness, healthiness and happiness. If you are struggling with the exercise and diet angle, start with His peace. One of the ways I do this is by reading His word daily. In addition to holiness you can work on being happier. Intentionally do at least one fun thing every day. This can be as simple as letting yourself day dream. Happiness comes from within; it is largely determined by your attitude. You can decide to enjoy what you have. Focusing on your holiness and happiness will help you be healthier. To increase your fitness level and improve your diet, start simple. Take the steps you will do. Baby steps are OK. The main goal is to have a holy, healthy, happy life. Do a little something every day, and eventually you will be living a new lifestyle. Do not put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
1 Timothy 4:8 “For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.”
