Un Hectic Holiday

 


Article Posted by: Sherri Sacconaghi - Nov. 28th, 2012

 

 


The holidays are in full swing. For many of us that means office parties, family

get togethers, and holiday outings with friends and neighbors. Add in Christmas shopping and holiday baking and…I’m just tired thinking about it.

 

Enjoy the holidays with these healthy holiday tips that might just keep the holidays a little less crazy this year.

 

  • Keep it Manageable. You may be invited to a dozen holiday parties but that does not mean you need to attend them all. Choose the events that sound fun (not draining) to you and bypass the others for a movie night at home.

  • Stay on schedule. It is easy to skip meals during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season but do your body a favor and keep on a routine. Skipping meals will leave you fatigued and prone to overindulging later in the day. You’ll need all the energy you can get for those long lines at the mall.

  • . Times are tight for many this year. Homemade gift ideas are sometimes more appreciated than a store bought gift. For some ideas try: http://www.realsimple.com/holidays-entertaining/gifts/hostess-gifts/14-creative-homemade-holiday-gift-ideas-00000000048654/index.html

  • Keep it Simple. So the centerpiece is not perfect, the silver is not polished and the turkey is a little on the dry side. If you have to let some things slide to keep your sanity, do it. In my house it is a potluck, buffet style on paper plates. (I am sure I just freaked out some of you Martha Stewart types). I get to enjoy hanging with my family, opening gifts, and helping my kids put together their new Lego sets. What better than ironing linens.

 

Many of us thrive on the hustle and bustle of the holidays while others are left overwhelmed and exhausted. Either way, remember the spirit of the holiday season. It is not about stuff, it is about people, appreciating what you have and sharing with others. Okay and a little about getting a really cool gift.

 

Happy Holidays.
