One thing to take OFF of your plate this holiday season
How many different things can you worry about at one time this time of year? We already have the normal holiday stresses of finances, family, and lack of time and daylight. This year, we can add the continuing worry of a pandemic as the icing on the 2020 cake.
Have you found yourself saying, “I just can’t add one more thing to my plate right now”? This is a very common response when people talk about their health and wellness goals this time of year. This is also the reason that so many goals are put off until after the New Year.
Here is the one thing that you can take OFF of your plate this season to help you reach your health goals: stress about your food choices!
Food should never be something that causes you stress or anxiety. It is merely a lump of calories on a plate; some foods being more nutritious, and some being more delicious! There is a way that you can still enjoy all of your favorite seasonal treats, and still work toward your goals (and no, this isn’t some gimmick or a FAD diet).
You can accomplish this through a habit-based approach to your nutrition. When you focus on your habits surrounding food, rather than only the foods you are eating (or not eating), you are able to apply these habits to any situation you are in, examples:
Holiday parties→ focus on eating when you are hungry, and stopping when you are full
Stress snacking → learning appropriate stress management techniques
Too busy to cook → learning effective weekly planning/meal prepping to fit your schedule
Working with a nutrition coach is about so much more than telling you what you should be eating. It is about helping you learn about your behaviors surrounding food, and ways that you can start practicing simple habits, one at a time, to improve these behaviors.
