5 Tips for a Healthy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving.  I love this holiday!  There are several associations I have with Thanksgiving as I’m sure you do too.  How about these?  Turkey, feast, family, football, naps, feeling full… heaviest

Over the years, I’ve talked with friends and acquaintances who have negative associations with this holiday too…sadness, loss, loneliness, stress, dysfunctional family dynamics, grieving, overeating…  I was just thinking this morning of a family who lost their 10 year old daughter to cancer a few weeks back and was thinking that this holiday season will be quite difficult for them.  I can’t imagine.

I’ve had a few Thanksgiving’s where I’ve allowed my circumstances to overshadow the opportunities.  I’ve let myself get stressed out over the timing of the food being ready at the same time.  I’ve let myself get frustrated for being in the kitchen when everyone else is relaxing together.  I’ve let myself be ungrateful, selfish, bored and yes, I’ve let myself overeat and feel yucky about it later.  Thank goodness, I haven’t done that in recent years and I feel like I’ve “grown up” a bit.  Along the way, there are things I tell myself each year and thought I’d share my 5 simple thoughts about having a peaceful and  healthy Thanksgiving.
