One of the tips mentioned in the article is to not abandon healthy habits. The author says:
“Don’t let the holidays become a dietary free-for-all. Some indulgence is OK, but overindulgence only adds to your stress and guilt.”
I think that is wise advice. Also, don’t forget about getting plenty of physical activity during this holiday season. A nice walk or any other form of exercise can be a great stress reliever. There are plenty of excuses we can make for why not to squeeze in our exercise. We just need to make it a priority.
Enjoy this holiday season. Enjoy the food, the time with loved ones, and everything else about the holidays.
As you do so, remember your healthy habits –they can help you avoid the unwanted stress of the holidays!
