Christmas is upon us - the time of the year when we spend countless hours choosing the right gifts for our family and loved ones and wait with anticipation to see the look on their faces when they open them on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day (depending on your Christmas rituals). I know I want each gift to be perfect and be something that will bring joy to the recipient.

1. Eat before going to a party – Eating a home allows you to make healthy choices. Avoid “nervous eating” if you feel uneasy at parties.

One of the key ideas I stress to everyone on the Team, is the internal drive it takes to complete any endurance event. It isn't too different from any other type of lifestye change.

Last night I was very tired and actually laid down in bed realizing I hadn't done my 10 minutes yet.
Don't let the Mayan calendar stress you out! The regular holiday season is already enough to make you want to stop turning pages on the calendar. Relax, renew and regenerate so you can transition into the next phase (whatever that will be ;-) ).

What is it that makes us feel most alive...the rush that comes with a streamlined focus, moving through space, taking risk, learning a completely new activity?

Movement facilitates learning, which is why children are in constant motion absorbing information from their surroundings, organizing the info, and trying out new patterns.
