So it’s New Year’s Day – also known as ‘What the hell am I doing with my life?’ Day – but before you commit to that restrictive diet that makes your sugar levels plummet and miserable how about you just don’t?
I mean, what’s the worst that can happen here?
Chances are you’ve spent the last month being indulgent with eating and drinking and you’re ready to juice everything in your cupboard in the hope of dropping a dress size before trying to fit into your work trousers in coming days.
Sorry, kid, it’s not happening – but so what?
Did you enjoy yourself? Did you make memories with your family and friends? I hope so.
I keep seeing posts about the New Year being the chance to write a whole new book, so why waste the first chapter being hungry and miserable just so you can give up a few weeks later?
Instead of re-evaluating your major life decisions, stripping your diet down to 500 calories a day or running a 10K just to pull a muscle four minutes into it, why don’t you spend the next few days eating some veggies, drinking some water and continue being the badass you were at 11:59pm?
I’m all for self-improvement and I’m constantly on the search for ways to do so but not at the cost of my happiness.
Let today be what it be: just another day.
Relax, you’re still awesome.
Happy New Year 💕
