 Home on Holidays with Family and Friends

Being at home for holiday gatherings, spending time with my family and friends as we gather around each other, Giving Thanks to God for bringing us together again, and sharing stories are special memories. The things we share with each other are deeply felt from within our hearts that neither of us will ever forget. For the gifts that are priceless are the ones that are heartfelt; their roots are within our soul.

The warm words of “Hello, it is so good to see you, again” and the hugs we share showing each other how much we love and care, bring tears to my eyes and warmth in my heart, with each day of knowing we will soon depart.

God sitting upon his heavenly throne has looked down upon us and smiled, as he poured out his blessings of love and kindness to each of us.

The peaceful atmosphere is filled with joy and happiness, as we sit around our table to express thanks to God, is one I will always cherish. I feel a special kind of love for my family and friends, with gratitude to God for allowing us to spend this holiday together once again.

Happy Holidays to my family and friends,

Face the Challenges and Maintain Good Health Habits during the Holidays   Leave a comment

Face the Challenges and Maintain Good Health Habits during the Holidays

 

The challenges we face to maintain good health habits become more aggressive during the holidays.

More time is spent eating and entertaining ourselves with family and friends, and less time is geared toward continuing the routine exercises and paying close attention to eating lesser calories and our salt intake as well as, eating smaller portions of food, during the holidays.

Eating unhealthy snacks between meals, and replacing water with pop and other beverages that are high in calories, can become a challenge to resist, while vacationing during the holidays. Cooking during the holidays can create a challenge. Over-sampling the food while preparing holiday meals is a weakness. The challenge to resist the temptation to eat a meal rather than a sample is aggressive.

 

 

 

To maintain good health habits during the holidays, we have to face each of our weaknesses and learn how to control our eating habits.

  1.  Continue to do as many exercise routines as possible
  2.   Eat smaller portions of food
  3.   Drink more water
  4.   Avoid salty foods
  5.   Monitor the calorie counts
  6.   Include fruits and vegetables in the holiday meals

Salty foods along with other seasoning used in foods, are tasty and enjoyable to the taste buds; making it easy to become addicted to them, while they present a challenge to our health. To deal with these challenges we have to face them and find the strength within ourselves to resist the temptation to yield to them, and maintain good health habits.
