The holidays are full of excitement, joy, and love, but let’s not pretend it’s ALL good! There are certainly stressors that accompany this hectic time, and ironically the added pressure of feeling happy non-stop only adds to the stress. It is okay to take a few minutes alone, a few minutes of exercise, a few minutes of self-care. Too much of a good thing can become exhausting very quickly; I use my time doing Pilates to quiet my mind and appreciate solitude during the holidays. I find this rejuvenating and have plenty of energy for family time full of fun activities and goofiness.
During the holidays there is always a ton of sugar, which I believe is what causes a lot of the overwhelming excitement…which then leads to a crash. If you don’t typically eat a lot of sugar be aware of this during this time of year. Definitely enjoy the foods you want, but be aware of how they might affect your mood if you are sensitive to sugar highs!
My favorite way to combat sugar crashes is stevia–the super secret weapon for baking and sweetening just about anything! I am so excited to host a giveaway with NuNaturals to give FOUR of you the chance to receive Vanilla NuStevia Liquid, a bottle of the new Sugar-free Cocoa Syrup, & a bottle of the new Sugar-Free Mint Cocoa Syrup, plus a 50 pkt. box of NuStevia No Carb Stevia packets!
