Thanksgiving is just around the corner tempting you with all your favorite foods. The good news is that you can enjoy the food and stay active at the same time. To stay healthy this Thanksgiving, just incorporate these tips into your holiday strategy!
Start off the day with exercise
Burn some calories before indulging in those Thanksgiving delicacies. Go for a walk. Play football with the kids. Have a family game of tag. Do anything to get your blood flowing and heart pumping.
Cook with music
Cooking a large meal is a lot of work, but music makes everything better! Put on some holiday tunes as you enjoy cooking with your family. You may even find yourself moving and shaking off some extra calories.
Drink lots of water
Getting plenty of H2O is a proven way to deal with digestive issues and stay healthy this Thanksgiving. Plus, drinking water fills you up and can help prevent overeating. It’s a habit you’ll want to hold onto throughout the holiday season.
Police your portions
Thanksgiving tables are bountiful and beautiful displays of traditional family favorites. Before you fill your plate, survey the buffet table and decide what you’re going to choose. Then select reasonable-sized portions of foods you cannot live without.
Maintain a positive attitude
Maintaining a positive mental attitude is also a vital component of health and fitness. Oftentimes, failure is due to not believing in yourself. Set a concrete goal, form a good plan, and have faith in yourself. That’s half the battle to success. Drive, motivation, and enthusiasm encourage you to take action as you strive toward your goal. Decide what you want, believe you deserve it, and go out and get it!
