Free download to help you to cut down on Christmas stress and control your eating in December
Thanksgiving is over, and that dreadful shopping bunfight known as Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which seem to have made their way across the pond whether we like them or not.
Whether you joined in enthusiastically with these events or let them pass you by, one thing is sure – now that they are over it is emphatically Christmas season. And with Christmas planning comes Christmas stress.

For most mums the first 24 days of December are a whirlwind at best, with all manner of stress thrown in for good measure. There is shopping and wrapping to be done, cards and other greetings to be sent. There are parties, plays, assemblies and fairs to attend at the children’s schools, some requiring donations or clever dressing up costumes. There is secret Santa, maybe a visit to the real Santa, plus planning for the holidays.
No matter how organised we try to be in advance it seems to sneak up earlier each year and something will always catch us by surprise.
During this time it is no wonder that our eating can get out of control. There s so much nice food around at this time of year and so little time to plan and cook healthy meals. Throw in a work Christmas party or two, and a couple of buffets at the children’s events and it starts to get silly. A few extra glasses of wine & some nibbles in front of the telly in the evenings? Of course, why not, after all haven’t you earned them? And then of course Christmas itself: eat, drink and be merry – it would be rude not to.
Please somebody help me!
I have only two wishes in December – the first is to try to carve out just a little bit of quiet me time each day, so that I don’t completely lose the plot, and secondly I wish that I could control my eating just a little bit, so that when I start the inevitable weight loss quest in January I’m starting from a better place. Does this sound like you?
My friends at Thinking Slimmer have come up with a genius idea. Their Christmas download takes just 9 minutes a day to listen to. During this time you are encouraged to relax, unwind and de-stress. It’s a wonderful short break out of a busy day.
But not only that, the purpose of the download is to retrain your brain so that you control your eating and drinking over the Christmas season. You can still have lots of fun and attend every party, but you may find that you are turning down that extra mince pie and little drinkie here and there. You may even find yourself wanting to take care of yourself and do a bit more exercise over the course of the month.
For me this is win-win. Even I can find 9 minutes each day and the relaxation does me the power of good. Last year I got through December and didn’t put on a single pound – this is definitely a first for me. So I will be listening every day this month – the children get their daily Advent calendar chocolate and I get my daily 9 minute chill out. So we are all happy!
This probably sounds too good to be true, but Thinking Slimmer Slimpods have been clinically proven to work and an NHS consultant calls them “profound and life changing”.
And best of all, I am allowed to give this special Christmas download away for free to my friends between now and 10th December. So if you would like to join me, reducing your stress and keeping control of your eating during the next few weeks, then download your copy here.

Please share this blog with anybody else that you think would like to cut down on their Christmas stress, as I would love to give away a download to every stressed mum in the UK, or anywhere else for that matter. Then we can all relax and have a Merry Christmas.
