How can you stay feeling healthy and motivated when you know the cookies are endless, the eggnog doesn’t stop pouring, late night work deadlines become common and our eating patterns are no longer consistent? I call it … juggling the holidays! The holidays are one time of the year when you really want to feel your best.. but the daunting question is how?
Speaking on behalf of many busy bee’s, this is hardest to tackle throughout the month of December. So how does one juggling all these challenges?
We make the change,
focus on fun not food
and stay motivated!
Make the change!
Staying active during the holidays is the habit we want to aim for all through December. But, how does one incorporate that with a busy lifestyle? We know that regardless of having a busy lifestyle YOU come first and our health is most important. Studies have proven that on average, adults gain more than a pound of body weight during the winter holidays. Those that stayed active gained the least weight (if any) and kept a positive attitude during the winter season. Stay happy and avoid the winter blues! Stay active and let is become a habit!
Keep the focus on fun, not food
Most holidays are associated with certain foods. Christmas at your house may not be the same without your table looking like a food explosion, but that doesn’t mean food has to be the main focus. Whether it's something active, a new hobby or taking the time to relax, throw yourself into the other rituals a holiday brings.
2015, You Did it!
You may be celebrating, but that doesn't mean that you should send your meal plan (and your judgment) on holiday. Don’t allow yourself to "think that you can't" because really all that you have to do is press pause on work and think "it's me time" instead! Continue with your meal plan and weekly prepping, being active and you’ll be juggling the holidays like it’s just another busy month. We often forget that our inner happiness is hard to juggle, just take the first step in making it happen and you’ll be healthy, alive and smiling.
