During the holidays, most of us feel stressed brought by so many things: Holiday traffic; Christmas rush; parties here and there. Of course, where there is a party, dessert buffets are always served on the table.
Oftentimes Christmas is associated with candies and sweets, thus the custom of Santa Claus giving sacks of gifts and candies to kids. This is said to be the time when most of the people gain a little pounds because of the sugar intake during the holiday season. Cakes, cupcakes, candy canes, gum balls, and other sorts of sweets are shared by everybody which makes the get-together even sweeter.
Now, sweets are also associated with sugar sickness, diabetes, toothache and more. As much as we’d like to eat more, we can’t deny the fact that too much sweet intake can pose a negative effect on our health.
That’s why we give you these three important tips on how you can still enjoy the holiday sweets without worrying about getting sick after the holidays.
STOP THINKING ABOUT THE “NO’s”
The more you think about the negative effects of sweets, the more stressed you become. Take out all the rules and go on with what you want, like eating a piece of delicious blueberry cheesecake. Appreciate what you eat, whether it’s soft or not. Don’t hate yourself for tasting a bit of sweetness, Christmas only happens once a year.
DON’T SEPARATE THE GOOD FROM THE BAD FOOD
You are celebrating the holiday season which is supposed to be the time to be happy and to have fun. Food is food and whether it looks bad or unhealthy, try to taste a bit of everything. A bite of a classic Sylvannas won’t hurt your teeth.
GET RID OF BEING A GROWN UP JUST FOR ONCE
Don’t over-exaggerate the fact that you are already 21 and you don’t have to sit with your grandma along with your little cousins as she shares her stories. Get-together is more special when everybody forgets about work and school and other stuffs. It’s Christmas! You gotta take a break!
