No. 1 Holiday Nutrition Tip
Relax and enjoy.
You have a lot of responsibility during the holiday season.
- You need to be shopping.
- You need to be travelling and visiting.
- You need to be thinking of others.
- You need to be eating.
- You need to be drinking.
- You need to be merry.
So enjoy it!
The last thing your body wants is to feel waves of guilt as you resort to a fast food meal at the mall while shopping or you put back a second or third turkey dinner of the season. Guilt disrupts the digestive processes because your body thinks you are in some kind of real distress (i.e. locked into battle with a wild animal or some other dangerous situation) and it doesn’t want to waste energy on digestion that could be used empowering you to survive whatever you’ve gotten yourself into. The best way to avoid this confusion of your bodily processes is to relax and accept the situation you are in for what it is.
If you are being fed, then appreciate the effort the host has put into preparing and presenting the meal. If you’ve been working hard to get shopping done or your Christmas lights up and you run out of time to make a perfect meal, then go ahead and grab something quick. Time is valuable. It’s not the end of the world and it’s not worth giving yourself indigestion over.
So this holiday season sit back, relax, and enjoy the meals that come your way, even if you’re not sure if they contain the best food for you.
Enjoy yourself these holidays. Enjoy the company of friends and family. Enjoy the food. Your body will thank you for relaxing.
