in boots is an injury waiting to happen?
So Santa has a little sugar addiction and trouble sleeping at night...don't we all at some point? So he supervises a large group of elves, at least he is a believer in transformational leadership and hasn't created an autocracy or dictatorship. How could you motivate such a crowd to produce as much as they do without leadership strategies that build team cohesion (vs. tear it apart)? And maybe Santa is carrying extra weight around his middle, but he is obviously active enough to fly and high altitudes (the VO2Max necessary to carry out such an activity belongs only to those elite athlete-types). Not to mention the amazing proprioception they guy must have to balance on rooftops like that. In addition to this, Santa is a practitioner in altruistic giving (something that research has suggested is linked to good health and a higher quality of life), he is socially connected to everyone...seriously, the guy knows EVERYONE (something that research has shown to improve health and length of life), and he is a chronic giggler (again, research suggests a good belly laugh is equal to 10 minutes on the rowing machine). So to all those health promoters who believe Santa needs a health intervention....go suck on a candy cane!
...and don't start picking on Mother Goose or the old lady who lives in the shoe for abuse of children either. Sure, some of those childhood nursery rhymes are creepy, if you really think about it, but so is the idea of an overweight old guy climbing down my chimney in the middle of the night.......nuff said?
|Yup, my Santa is healthy, happy, |
socially connected with a
wicked sense of humour!
That's all I got.
