You don’t have to choose between the holidays or health, you can have both.
Worried about striking a balance between enjoying the holidays and maintaining your health and wellness goals?
Are you often caught up in the time warp of the holiday season?
We understand the struggle. With family gatherings, festivities with friends and colleagues, hosting duties, and everything in between, finding time for self-care can be challenging, right?
But it doesn't have to be this way. You can have the best of both worlds this year by simplifying your approach. Here are three strategies to use:
#1 Set specific goals. As numerous holiday gatherings approach, establish exercise and vegetable consumption goals to help manage the added stress that can accompany these events.
#2 Avoid arriving hungry and maintain a balanced plate. Don't attend holiday gatherings on an empty stomach. Start your day with a nutritious breakfast and stay hydrated before your main holiday meal, reducing the temptation to overindulge. Opt for a well-balanced plate using the plate method, incorporating healthy sources of protein, carbohydrates, and fats, and brightening it up with an assortment of vegetables.
#3 Make the most of your time with family and friends by socializing, playing games, and sharing laughter. Commit to enjoying a single plate of food to prevent mindless eating and create cherished holiday memories with your loved ones.
