Your fear of seeing all the efforts made during the last months fly away in this period of festivities, does it almost prevent you from enjoying these precious moments?
With meals, outings and invitations that follow one another, the fear of losing control can indeed become a source of stress and anxiety. Because for many people, the holidays rhyme with excess and guilt. So how is it possible to let go and reconnect with the joy of the moment? Here are 3 tips to help you achieve this:
- Eat mindfully:
During this period, tell yourself that it is not a question of living in frustration but rather of being more attentive to your needs.
– Listen to the internal signals your body is sending you and its needs. Eat when you are hungry and stop when you are full.
– Nourish your body and your mind with all its senses: explore, savor, taste! How? ‘Or’ What ? Be in the moment, know how to appreciate the crunch of a crisps in your mouth, the pleasant texture of chocolate melting in your mouth and the pretty assortments of colors on your plate. Try to focus on quality over quantity and take the time to savor.
– Avoid the thought of “all or nothing”. Just because you ate chocolate fondant doesn’t mean your day and your week are wasted!
- Maintain your routine:
If you think skipping lunch because you’re invited to dinner is an effective strategy, think again! When you arrive at dinner on an empty stomach, you have a much better chance of succumbing to all the temptations. Better to eat your usual meals and work on eating “mindfully”. It is much easier to listen to our internal signals when our hunger is moderate.
- Get moving:
The holiday season is a holiday for many, so make the most of it, you have more time! Put on your sneakers and presto! Take at least one 30-minute walk daily.
Finally, even if you went overboard during the holidays, remember that ultimately what matters is not what you do during that little fortnight but all the rest of the day. year.
