Most of us are already in the midst of the holiday season. For those who celebrate, the holiday season already started with Thanksgiving. This will go on to include Hanukkah,Christmas, Boxing Day, Kwanzaa, New Year’s Eve and New Year. This is usually a period of time when there is a lot of celebrations among families and friends going on. Unfortunately the holidays are also associated with stress, eating too much and not having enough time to exercise. These three factors usually lead to weight gain during the holidays unless we take steps to overcome their potential effects.
Stress affects all of us in many different ways. Sadly for some of the way we react to stress is to eat more. We may do this buying more food, taking more snacks or drinking more. Stress and anxiety during the holidays may come from getting ready for parties or hosting end of the year parties or Christmas parties. These are times when disagreements are bound to happen.
If you do not want to gain weight during the holidays, you have to learn to quickly overlook little disagreements so that they do not become conflicts that will completely stress you out. Secondly if you are stressed out, go for a walk or find ways to exercise instead of trying to cope with it by eating.
EATING TOO MUCH
One little trick that will help you not to eat too much during the many parties and celebrations you will have to attend during this holiday season is to eat at home before you go to the parties. Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying you should a full meal , however if eat a little and snack fruits and vegetables, you will be full enough to enjoy your parties without overeating. The logic is quite simple, if you do not eat too much during the holiday season, you will not gain too much weight.
MAKE OUT TIME TO EXERCISE
During the busy holiday season, people find themselves having less time to keep to their exercise schedules. They end up exercising less. Whatever do make out time to exercise, even if it means doing so at unusual times and in unusual location. The problem is that if you cut down on your exercise regimen while eating a lot more, you will end up gaining weight during the holiday season.
“Are you transforming your moment or is your moment transforming You?”
First, I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving. This is usually the beginning of the holiday season which will include Christmas and New year. This is a time when we spend a lot of time buying presents for our loved ones and dealing with family relationships. Though this is supposed to be a time of joy and happiness, it turns out to be a time of stress for a lot of us. We all already know that stress can be bad for our health. Chronic stress can lead us to sleepless nights , tiredness and reduced concentration. This can lead to health problems like hypertension and heart disease. It can also lead to unintended consequences like drinking too much alcohol, drunk driving and accidents. Did you that heart attacks and accidents occur at a very high frequency during the holiday season? One way you to avoid putting yourself at risk, during this Christmas period would be learn to stretch your limit. I will share with you three ways you can expand your limit and a live a more abundant life even as we deal the challenges of health, finances and relationships. You can stretch your limits in your relationships by keeping quiet when you feel like talking. This can be at home, at work or when you are shopping. How many times have kept quiet and in the next sentence, all your concerns resolved ? In your mind your you are glad you kept quiet because you were just about to yell and make a big fuss!!!!!
The other two ways to stretch your limits and overcome daily stress would be to mange time better and deeper your understanding of your self so that you can live more congruently with your inner self.
