Chocolate for breakfast, Lunch in PJ's ...

LIMBO… After counting down the days until Christmas, everything after Boxing Day becomes a bit of a blur, time breaks down and becomes an abstract concept. It probably doesn’t help if I’ve done nothing other than sit and watch Netflix or movie marathons in my pyjamas, but the lack of structure means I barely know where I am in the space-time continuum. Between Christmas and New Year all I know about the days of the week is that they might have a ‘y’ in them. Existence is a confusion. Some people call this period the Festive Perineum. More elegantly, the Norwegians know this time as ‘Romjul’. It’s a lull. A gap. Not a creature is stirring.

There is no denying, though, that relaxing can be complicated. Most of us aren’t used to it. We know how to wring every drop of usefulness and impressiveness out of the weekend, but we are not practised in the art of doing nothing.

There are officially no rules – so functioning adults with mortgages and children are absolutely allowed to tuck into a box of Celebrations before 11am. Should I get dressed? This is one of the toughest questions we'll face between Christmas and New Year. Unless we’re changing from one set of pyjamas into another, the answer to this will always be - no. When do schools go back? If you’re a parent, you’re an absolute saint if you haven’t secretly longed for this moment at least a few times 😉.

However you’re spending your Crimbo limbo, I hope you’re rested, relaxed and ready to make the new year one to remember for all the right reasons. Challenge and love yourself in every way - your body, mind and soul.

“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. Life is a beauty, admire it. Life is bliss, taste it. Life is a dream, realise it. Life is a challenge, meet it”. - Mother Teresa
