Holiday Reminder: Strategies for Feeling Great this Holiday Season
FEELING GREAT THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
Let's be honest; for many of us, the holiday season isn't always picture-perfect. They can be chaotic and often come with stress. Considering this, I thought I'd offer a holiday reminder about how to fully enjoy the holiday season without unnecessary burdens.
Imagine finishing the festive season healthier and even more joyful than you started. This is the holiday reality you can manifest for yourself.
A crucial holiday reminder to start with: prioritize yourself. While it may seem selfish at first glance, consider it as doing a favor for those around you. Meeting your loved ones from a place of vibrancy and happiness naturally makes everything more enjoyable. The surroundings might remain the same, but when you're feeling great, minor irritations won't affect you as much.
Now, about gifting: instead of overwhelming yourself with buying gifts for every single person, why not simplify? Buy gifts for the kids and consider making donations or purchasing wellness services for the adults in your life. This strategy not only reduces the rush but also provides an opportunity for meaningful quality time. Ultimately, the best way to enjoy the holiday season is to cherish the moments you spend with loved ones.
When it comes to feasting, "Clean Eatz" offers wholesome choices. It's common to encounter less-than-healthy options during holiday festivities. While it's challenging to decline festive treats, especially when trying to enjoy the holiday season, you can make balanced choices. Remember, many holiday foods can be taxing on the body, leading to feelings of fatigue and discomfort. Drink lots of water, perhaps cut down on alcohol or sweets, and consider taking digestive enzymes to assist your body in processing rich foods.
A quick holiday reminder for the morning after start your day with a glass of water and a squeeze of organic lemon. This simple ritual can help neutralize excess acid that contributes to aches. On days you're not attending parties, give your body a break. Minimize caffeine, grains, and fruit; focus on lean proteins and non-starchy veggies. These little changes can help counterbalance the indulgences of the festive season, ensuring you continuously enjoy the holiday season.
Feeling good, especially during festive times, transforms your perception. When you're vibrant and content, everything around you seems to hold more promise and joy.
Remember to enjoy the holiday season and be kind to yourself. Happy holidays!
