As the holidays are fast approaching, it can become difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle during these busy days. The most important part when going through the holiday season is to maintain balance in your diet and lifestyle.
- Portion control. Those buffets can be dangerous, especially when going up for a second or third serving. You don’t have to eat everything being served.
- Eat slowly and wait 10 minutes. Often time we eat so quickly that our stomachs don’t have a chance to tell us when we are full. Take your time to savor your food and wait before going up for more.
- Keep your body in motion! Enjoy the winter weather outside with your family. Physical activity can also lower your stress level.
- Don’t forget to get some sleep! A lack of sleep can often mean you are more tired, lethargic and hungry to for fuel (or food). Get those 8 hours of sleep.
Most of all remember what the holiday season is truly about and celebrate those times with family and friends.
