Are you feeling a little bloated after the New Year and Christmas celebrations? Does the thought of eggnog or one more slice of pie have you staring wistfully at your waistband? Is the dog feeling neglected? Well you aren’t alone, or wrong. Many people feel that they have overindulged during the holidays and then feel guilt over it after, well maybe you should reconsider that line of thinking. After all our bodies are a gift from God, the food on our table a gift from God, the friends and family we celebrated Jesus’ birth with and broke bread with – all a gift from God.
So with this it’s plain to see that we should not feel bad for the gifts God brings, or the time spent with loved ones celebrating His birth, and if we are feeling a little overindulged and that maybe we need to respect the temple of our bodies a little more, well that’s easy to do, all we need to do is head outside.
Living on Kauai means that (almost) aways the weather and temperature are pleasant, so that we can take a short stroll, a hike or run on the beach or even a marathon if you we are feeling adventurous, in fact there is one coming up.
