Yes, it’s that time of year again…your will power will be tested and your pants may get a little tighter…but does it have to be that way???
By all means, enjoy the time with your family and friends….be merry and cheerful…but also be healthy.
Santa makes a list and checks it twice, why shouldn’t you? Seriously, planning is your ticket to success.
Making a quick Meal Plan can save you time, money and energy. Make it a habit to take 10 minutes on Sunday to write one out. It doesn’t have to be fancy.
Get picky…don’t eat it if you don’t like it. Instead of saying you don’t like it, or you are watching your waistline…just say you aren’t hungry…no one can argue with that.
People love when you share the gift of health so either bring some of your own treats or make as a hostess gift…..
Do what’s realistic and what you love
Not into writing Christmas cards…give someone a call – everyone loves this personal touch
Don’t want to bake…don’t or pick something simple. Or try all the tasty raw treat suggested.
What can you do before the holidays?
-Freeze food so that in a pinch you have a great meal, snack or smoothie you can pull out. – like your greens, Quinoa meatballs, Sausage Shepherd’s Pie, or a Smoothie pack. Don’t forget about soups and stews.
-Plan out who you would like to write Christmas cards too. What gifts to you need to buy for people, and what gifts can you wrap now.
What to do on a daily basis….
Sleep – no sleepy…no nicey…we all need sleep and if you aren’t getting enough you are going to be crabby…so get some shut eye.
Move Your Body – I know the craziness of the holidays makes this one a toughie…but no excuses…plan it into your life right now and treat it like the most important “do not miss” event!
Keep in mind to….
shorten your routine and increase the intensity.
Find a friend to walk with
Stretch and breath
Sugar and junk food will destroy your immunity…throw into the mix a lack of sleep, a lack of movement and an added dose of stress and BAM…you are down for the count.
Get your daily dose of Vegetables & Fruits with this simple shift, pump up your Vitamin D intake, add enjoy a nutritious smoothie like this Green Vanilla Maca Madness, get some fresh air and some shut eye.
As Dr. Susan Wilder suggests, avoid “The Three O’s”
Trying to keep up with the Joneses, neglecting sleep and chill time, and overdoing everything are a prescription for unhealthy holidays. Make and take time for yourself to chill, do right by your body and engage in active experiences with people you care about.
