Have you ever heard of Transition Week?
If you haven't heard of it, you've definitely experienced it.
It's this time between Christmas and New Year's.
It's this time when you aren't really sure what day of the week it is. Or what the date is.
You might be so full of turkey you haven't gone back to the gym yet.
You're not sure what commitments you're actually expected to... well... be committed to. (Is that meeting really going to happen this week?!)
For Troy and I, the week has been full of transitions. From my family leaving, to his family arriving. We've welcomed an old friend to be our new roommate for a few months. We're transitioning from a snowy winter wonderland back to rainy Vancouver.
Transition week is a beautiful time. Many of us are on holidays or in holiday-mode. If you're the one still working, work is probably pretty laid back these days.
The days are short and the nights are long. You're sleeping more. You're eating more.
Doesn't sound so bad, right?
It turns out that most of us aren't great at transitions. The internet memes talking about how awkward this week is tells a story in itself.
Think about it - we don't naturally love change. And we certainly don't love "in-between" periods.
Often, we're so excited to get to "the next big thing" that we don't relish the time in between. The space. The transition.
This week, I encourage you to soak it up. Stretch this transition week.
For each of us, this might mean one of two things: relax and rejuvenate... or ramp up for 2017.
If you want to relax and rejuvenate:
It's time to let go of the guilt that's attached to that leftover stuffing you're still enjoying. It might mean you need to stop beating yourself up for sleeping a little extra. Or it might mean you need to be gentle with yourself. Give yourself permission to relax and reflect on the past year. What went well? What would you change? What did you learn in 2016?
If this week is all about ramping up for the next year:
Go for it. Set your alarm 10 minutes earlier and start that mediation practice today. Put your sneakers by your bed and go to the gym or for a run first thing when you wake up.
Squeeze in one last book you were dying to read. Book a last-minute vacation (gotta love airline Boxing Day sales!). Sign up for a ClassPass or Gym membership and - most importantly- start using it today!
Either way, make the most of this "Transition Week". If you're going to rest up, do it guilt-free. If you're going to ramp up, get it done!
I want you to make the most of Transition Week. And I want you to make the most of every week, especially in 2017.

PS. The first step is always the hardest. I know how hard it was for me to invest in my first group program. I was nervous about spending that much money and kept trying to talk myself out of it. I literally waited until 5 minutes before enrolment closed (and risked missing out!).
