Practical tips/tools to master and manage the holidays - 3

Here are some practical tips and tools to manage the abundance of food that is very typical for the holidays.

  • Don't skip meals just because there is a "special" meal.

  • Eat breakfast, lunch, and then treat the Thanksgiving meal as a dinner meal.

  • Use a 9 inch plate instead of the regular size dinner plate.

  • Keep healthy foods in sight.

  • Instead of whole piece of dessert, take 1/2 of serving. Share with someone.

Wellness Begins With Happiness Here are 5 ways to help make peace for the holidays:

  1. Make sure you set aside time for relaxation, exercise and quiet moments alone.

  2. Keep your sense of humor no matter what.

  3. Have realistic expectations about holiday visits.

  4. Do something new and creative this year.

  5. Start noticing what’s going right in your family rather than focusing only on what’s going wrong.
