Making It Through The Holidays
When we are trying to be healthy the holidays can feel overwhelming, so many office parties, snacks, family meals etc. It doesn't have to de-rail your plans.
Enjoy the sweets and snacks that come your way, just choose wisely, eat mindfully, and use wisdom and moderation
When faced with nerve racking events remember to take a minute to find a place of calm inside, make a decision ahead of time to avoid emotional eating, breathe and look for the positives
Plan ahead for big meals, ask yourself what things you think will be there and what you would like to splurge on - treat yourself, then fill in with healthier options.
NO GUILT! Shaming yourself, eating in guilt, and berating yourself does not help your overall wellness. Remind yourself that you are on a lifestyle of health adventure and that includes special meals and holidays where you treat yourself guilt free. This doesn't mean go wild, but give yourself a break.
Gratitude is a huge part of wellness, remember to be thankful.
Just have fun.
