Can you believe we are about to celebrate Easter? For us, Easter is about spending time with family, enjoying a lovely meal and of course chocolate. I love chocolate and if you are my friend on Facebook you may have seen every year I manage to post something about how chocolate tastes better in the shape of a bunny or an egg. Thanks Facebook memories for showing my addiction to this tasty treat. Each year I see the same rubbish about how many burpees it’ll take to burn off a creme egg. You know what, sleeping 8 hours probably burns that amount of calories too so put it into perspective. I am tired of the guilt and wanted to give you 3 steps to enjoy a guilt free Easter.
Step One to a Guilt Free Easter:
Appreciate every bunny or egg given to you as a gift. People show their love and thoughtfulness through gifts, that are meant to be enjoyed.
Step Two to a Guilt Free Easter:
Open the eggs or bunnies and eat them… slowly.
Step Three to a Guilt Free Easter:
Sit back and enjoy. Guilt Free!
It’s easy as that!
In all seriousness though, Easter can be a time for people to go crazy and demolish the Easter aisle at Kmart. But Easter to us is about sharing quality time with family. We often give gifts of pyjamas or slippers with a small chocolate as a treat. We want to enjoy chocolate but realistically we would rather spend our money on preparing for Winter. Snuggly slippers and pyjamas are the best. We are teaching our kids that Chocolate is a treat and in the process re-teaching ourselves it’s a treat too.
So delete anyone who makes you feel bad about enjoying a treat this Easter. Tell them to stick their burpees back in their Easter basket and spend a wonderful weekend with your family. I know that we will.
Happy Guilt Free Easter from all of us at Evolution Health Services.
