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 Seven – Keep First Things First
Finally, and, most importantly, keep first things first. One of the biggest disruptors to health goals during the holiday season is stress. Once the plan is in place, focus on the celebration with family and friends. That’s what is truly important. And, always remember the goal is better, not perfect.
Comment, if you want to How was your holiday? Share anything you want too Hope you have a good week
What comes to mind is "blursday" a new word my sister told me about...the word means one day blurs into the next...and that is what this year has often seemed to be.
As for the holidays...I am grateful for good friends, wonderful family, and the abundance we have in our lives. I am putting together plans for 2021 and know that goals will be set and achieved by focusing and doing the work.

My holiday went well. I wasn’t trying to restrict myself, but I didn’t go crazy either. It was “normal” levels of eating- which is overeating in my case. This morning I woke up and grabbed the food scale and put it on the counter. I like to avoid looking at what I eat, but knowledge is power. And I want the power to change.
