The holidays are just around the corner (I can’t believe it!). The air is getting a little crisper, the leaves are changing color and you just feel holidays on the horizon. I love it! The holiday season is such a fun time of year with festive parties, time with family and lots of food. The celebration is such a treat, but this season comes with a lot of temptation. So how do you balance it all? It can be pretty tough, but with a little willpower and a plan – you can do anything! Here are my secrets of how to stop giving into temptation (especially during the holidays).

 Stop Giving into Temptation During the Holidays

  • Stick to your daily health plan. Even though your social calendar is packed, squeeze in some sort of exercise every day.
  • Fill up on healthy snacks before you head to a party. Eat a salad with lean chicken or a handful of almonds and an apple before heading out. You’ll feel full and will have no problem saying no to extra calories.
  • Keep the drinks to a minimum. Definitely enjoy a cocktail or two – but, sip them and then switch to sparkling water with a twist.
  • Get enough sleep. A crammed social calendar won’t be any fun if you don’t set some boundaries. If you’re over tired and you’ll be more likely to make careless food choices and skip out on exercise.

These are my secrets to stop giving into temptation during the holidays, what are yours?
