The holiday season is upon us. It’s the time of the year to enjoy celebrating and spending time with family and friends; however, for many, it’s also the time of the year that disrupts schedules and interrupts progress with health goals.
Inevitably, it seems, goals and progress are placed on hold until it’s time for New Year’s resolutions, and unfortunately, research shows that those resolutions are rarely reached.
This year, make a change by following these seven simple habits for healthy holidays:
Habit Six – Reinvent Something Old
Traditions are important. Modifying old traditions can be a way to stay on track with health goals during the holiday season. Think about the most important traditions, and then think about a way to update one tradition to make it less stressful, more nutritious, or more physically active this year. One example is trekking into the forest to chop down a tree rather than purchasing from a lot.
Comment, if you want to Commit to a challenge, if you want to Share what you reinvent...if you do
Try something new and healthy then tell us about it
Any plans for the holiday...and will the menu be healthy...tell us about holiday fare you have made healthier...if you have
'Tis the Season...to overindulge. My sister wonders if it is the two planets moving closer to one another that is the culprit or the holidays or the weather or what. I start a new week this morning so have all my weeklies available and have committed to a healthier week this week than last week. ALSO will commit to having fruit and/or vegetable at every meal.
As for reinventing something old...not sure what I will do. I will commit to being OP today, though, and then one day at a time thereafter
I am definitely in the mood for a salad today and might make one with oranges and beets for lunch or dinner. We bought beets and remember how good they are in salad with oranges...no avocado or would add those, too.
Not sure we will have anything different than usual on Christmas. Might...might not. I will let you know if my husband is interested in making a feast or just eating leftovers
