It might not feel quite like Holiday Season with these crazy warm temps everywhere however Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I don’t know about you but I tend to get a little stressed and overwhelmed right about now. I’ve come up with a few tips to help keep Healthy & Sane During The Holidays.
Plan your meals ahead of time. I find I am more stressed and time crunched around this time so I try to plan out my meals for the next few days. If I know that I am going to be having a big family dinner or party to attend, I try to plan lighter meals for the few days beforehand. That way, I can enjoy a small splurge.
Preregister for a Thanksgiving or Holiday themed race. This is a two fer as I know I am going to get my workout in and it’s also a stress reliever (escape) from your family for a few hours. Just saying 🙂 Holiday races are low key and fun so why not?!
Just Say No! This time of year, it can feel like you are pulled in every direction with requests from family, friends, co workers, school to attend events and donate items etc. The pressure to do everything is stressful to say the least! It’s ok to just say no. You can’t do everything-at least not all at the same time.
Schedule some me time. Carve out a few hours for yourself to go to a movie, have coffee with friends or a date night with your significant other.
Powershop! Seriously all the stamina you’ve built up running, cycling & sweating it out has to be good for something! Check that fitness tracker because you can log in a lot of steps power walking through the mall.
