To come to terms with the cooler months ahead of us, we've pulled together an edition of myPrinciples which is sure to provide you some interesting information to help you get more out of life.
Just after Christmas day, I caught up with a friend and we began to chat about the details of the big day, when he started to lament how he was going to burn off the 6,000 plus calories he thinks he consumed on Christmas day. I thought he was kidding.
"No, really, how do I burn off the 6,000 plus calories from Christmas day and get back on track?" There it was, he said it again, I couldn't have been hearing things, he was serious!!
Ahhh, the holiday season, that amazing time of giving and good cheer, celebration and getting together with loved ones. A time where everything is beautiful, just perfect and all is good in the world.....errr, well, maybe not! For many of us, Christmas is just plain stressful, leaving us with very little cheer!
