Pre-New Year's Resolution
And so it begins. Halloween is the kick off to the holiday season, which means parties, potlucks, and plenty of treats. While providing several occasions to cozy up with great people and eat delicious food, this time of year calls for cold temperatures, which puts a damper on outdoor activities and the opportunity to get out and move. This could be why so many of us give up on our healthy habits during the holidays, reassuring ourselves that we will start fresh at the beginning of the new year.
So here's my thought. Why wait until New Year's to make a resolution? Make one now! Set one or two goals to keep yourself healthy during the holiday season. Some ideas include:


  • Have only one sweet treat per party
  • Take the stairs at work instead of the elevator
  • Steer clear of second helpings
  • Make time to exercise even once per week during the extra busy periods (even if that means bundling up to take the kids sledding or ice-skating)
  • Say no to the second or third cocktail
  • Accompany heavy meals with a glass of water instead of sugary soda

Sticking to even one of these goals might help you feel healthier during the holidays and cut down the things to "resolve" come January 1.
