Avoid sabotaging your hard earned healthy habits and ensure continued success on Thanksgiving (and the rest of the year) with these life preserver tips!
1) Get a health sponsor. Choose a friend or family member you can trust or a professional health advocate…anyone you can trust to be there for you to text, call or talk with in person when you need reminders or help with stress management around the holidays.
2) Take a long time to finish your meal. Seriously, make it a goal to take at least 20 minutes to enjoy your meal.
3) Converse and give thanks between bites to encourage mindfulness and
avoid eating rapidly. The practice of being mindful and thankful is more sustaining to feelings of pleasure than the short-lived pleasure of the tasty food itself.
