Turkey, pumpkin pie, cookies and holiday parties stacked on top of one another. When we’re deep in the holiday season it’s easy to put your healthy lifestyle off to the side; eating whatever you and skipping gym days. Often times this leads to intense feelings of guilty new year resolutions to lose the weight and get back into shape and on track. For many this is a cycle that repeats yearly.
How about this year we get a head start and practice mindfulness and moderation creating balance of fun and still keeping our daily habits and routine in check.
- Maybe limit to one or two cookies, a special one that is very much a treat this time of year as opposed to a chocolate chip that is available all year.
- Limit drinks at the work party to two, drinking plenty water in between.
- Be sure to schedule your gym time in your calendar and schedule everything else around it – Make yourself just as important as your friends, family and colleagues.
The more indulging and procrastination, the harder and longer it takes to get reset back to your normal, you can still enjoy the holidays in moderation and feel ahead of the game come the new year.
