The Holiday season is here! I love this time of year because it represents so many important things in life. Gathering with friends and family, generosity, eating great food, and decorating light me up this time of year.
It goes without saying that the holidays can also bring some stress and anxiety around food and make us feel sluggish. We all struggle with getting off track nutritionally, and it’s OK. I think that just having this mindset alone is helpful during the holidays because it means that you’re human. It also takes the pressure off of always thinking that you have to be perfect with food or that you can’t indulge and enjoy your favorite treat. The good news is that you can enjoy your favorite treats because it’s not about perfection; it’s about progress. Small, consistent healthy choices create major health and lifestyle habits. Balance is KEY!
