No. 1 Give a smile : A cheerful look brings joy to the heart – Proverbs 15:30
Some people might say that Christmas is the most unhealthy time of the year, and not just because because of all those Christmas parties and Grandma’s fat-saturated shortbread and Christmas cake.
There’s the frantic spending, exhausting socialising, crazy traffic and the frequently fraught family negotiations over just where and how to spend Christmas day. Yes, Christmas can be downright dreadful – exceedingly lonely or excessively stressful. But it doesn’t have to be.
It’s easy to forget that Christmas is all about celebrating the greatest gift the world has ever received: God’s gift of his son Jesus to anyone who wants to accept it. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world but to save the world through him. John 3:17
So on this theme of giving , I’m doing 12 healthy Christmas tips – spread out from now until Christmas. They cover not just healthy food and exercise but also ideas for emotional, social and spiritual health. I would love to hear if you try any, or if you have any healthy giving tips you would like to share.

We’ve bought the presents, sung the songs, glazed the ham, stuffed the turkey, prepared the puddings, sampled the shortbread and sneaked a few chocolates. Everything is ready… for what? Take a moment to remember the true reason for this celebration – the first ever Christmas gift from God to us – his son Jesus. This verse from the Bible explains it all: “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world…” John 3:17
I hope you have a fun day with good food, family and friends. Happy Christmas!!
