Tips for Staying on track this Holiday Season
It’s not just about the food. Don’t make food the center of your attention, focus, or obsession. Instead focus on what the season truly is about, spending time with your loved ones, caring for others, showing and expressing gratitude, and being mindful of your actions.
Drink up! Water that is. With running errands, cooking, traveling, and having one too many cocktails- it’s easy for our bodies to get dehydrated. Drink water throughout the day!
Relax. Most of us get to have a couple days off from work to relax… so relax! Enjoy the time away from the busy workdays and enjoy yourself. Also, there’s no need to feel guilty about indulging in foods for one evening/meal- as long as your back on track first thing in the morning, it’s OKAY!!!
Don’t forget about the veggies. Oh yesss, the powers of vegetables during any time of year, but especially around the holiday season when you’re eating more dense foods. Veggies are a great way to create a lot more volume in a dish to make you feel like you’re eating a lot more than you actually are.They’re full of water, fiber, nutrients galore, and taste amazing when prepared in a way you love.
Enjoy the little moments. Constantly tell yourself daily reminders and mantras of being present, living in the moment, connecting with your true self, and not allowing thoughts of “what if’s” interfere with daily living. The more you concentrate on being present, the more you’re able to enjoy spending time with family and friends, enjoy the spirit of the holiday season, engage in fun activities, shop.
