This time of year, many of my clients share with me that they are anxious about the fast-approaching holiday season. They feel like they’ve been making great progress in eating healthier, feeling better, and achieving balance in their lives. They don’t want the holidays to wreak havoc on their wellness routine. This concern is based on past experiences of feeling out of control during the holidays.
1. Keep most of your meals healthy and home-cooked
It is easy during the holidays to get thrown off course and then feel like you might as well give-up completely. Instead, choose to keep most of your meals the same healthy fare you were eating before the holidays. Then you can choose to fully enjoy those special holiday meals, guilt-free.
2. Eat mindfully
This is always important, but it is particularly important during the holidays when there are treats everywhere we turn. When we feel guilty about what we’re eating, we tend to eat quickly and standing up (perhaps even with the frig door open). Instead, try sitting down and eating without distraction (no phone, computer, TV, newspaper, etc). Then, chew each bite thoroughly so you get the full enjoyment of your food.
3. Continue your exercise routine
