10 11 BE THE CHANGE GET INSPIRED CELEBRATE IN NEW WAYS Like I mention above - you can inspire and ask your friends and family to join you for a walk or run or perhaps a dip in the ocean but don’t stop doing it if no one wants to join you. Be the change you want to see and you may be surprise who you inspire along the way. Know you’d love to tackle all the above but get stuck thinking what to make at Christmas. Then hop online and get some recipes going - Pete Evans has some wonderful family food ideas as does Jaimie Oliver and our very own Alexx Stuart from Little Black Dress Group. I will also be sharing my top Christmas snacks and salad ideas and easy to make recipes on the blog. For me Christmas is about calibration, time out, being able to head to the beach, spend the whole day in a bikini and not have a particular time limit. Avoid using announcements that you “can’t have this” or “shouldn’t have that” - just make quiet decisions and stick to your guns. It will all pay off when you’re up on a beautiful morning and everyone else is nursing a food hangover. Get your kids involved too. Making bliss balls for example are ideal as fun healthy snacks at Christmas time. Health & Happiness this festive season!

What’s your way to celebrate? Put some thought into what really makes your heart sing this Christmas and do more of that! End the year with a sense of vitality, energy and gratitude that we all have the choice to create the life we want.
