Bring Balance to the Holidays Season
Should you go on a crash diet and starve yourself to get back into your skinny jeans before the 2020 Holiday Season takes its toll on you? No way! Experts tell us that balance is the key to being healthy, happy, and successful in our health goals. Sure, there are seasonal drinks and yummy dishes that we may not normally indulge in. We may eat more on our favorite Holiday than a routine work day. That's not only normal; it is actually okay. You see, this is a normal part of balance. Some days we eat more than others due to higher levels of hunger, availability of food, emotions, plans, or many other factors. That's just as true in June as it is in December.
Remember, being in tune with this hunger often helps us be aware of our fullness. You won't spend the entire day binging on potato latkes or Christmas cookies when you listen to when you are comfortably full. Being mindful of both your hunger and fullness helps you achieve balance at holiday dinner tables, parties, and events. This is what you should be striving for!
This Holiday Season, ask yourself these questions:
Are you getting enough vitamins and minerals?
Are you staying hydrated?
Are you getting enough rest?
Are you exercising and moving your body in the ways you normally enjoy?
Are you paying attention to your mental health?
Are you spending as much time with your social support as possible?
These are all important slices to the pecan pie of your holiday health! If you're having trouble finding and keeping this balance, there are numerous health products you can order online that will help. Give yourself the tools you need to stay healthy and balanced this Holiday Season.
