Ready or not, the winter holidays are upon us. However you commemorate them, consider one guiding principal: Go stress–free! Naturally, that’s easier said than done for many people. Given so much packed into one month–holiday cards, shopping, wrapping gifts, parties and social obligations, cooking, entertaining and/or hosting extended family, it’s easy to get overwhelmed.
The holiday combination of stress and revelry can pose a major challenge for people striving to lose fat–and even those determined to maintain their current weight. Can you actually make it through the season without gaining a single pound? Yes! If you’re committed to protecting the trim, healthy body you’ve worked for all year, these effective tips will serve you well.
Though you may not be thinking of health issues, December is also Colorectal Cancer Awareness and Education Month. Since this form of cancer is highly preventable, it’s well worth taking a moment to learn here how to protect yourself–and those you love.
On a lighter note, December 13 is National Cocoa Day, which is sure to bring a smile to faces young and old–especially when you factor in the many health benefits this beloved natural food delivers. You’ll be well informed after this short read.
We hope you enjoy this festive month to the fullest. Happy celebrating!
