When the holiday season comes to mind, most of us get excited about the yummy foods, fizzy drinks and tasty treats. Not to mention the rush of the season, from parties and events to airport pick ups, wrapping gifts and the end of year work crunch, can all be a little (or a lot) stressful! While this season is meant to be indulged in and cherished with family and friends, it can be met with some uncomfortable symptoms: feeling bloated, overly full, fatigued, and downright exhausted! Keep reading on to learn the best tips and tricks for mastering the holiday season, symptom-free!
Before any food even enters your mouth, you can set the digestive process off on a good note! Digestion actually begins in the brain, with the activation of the parasympathetic nervous system, commonly known as 'rest or digest'. When the body is in this state, digestion goes much more smoothly. Before you indulge, start your day with 10 minutes of deep breathing, grab a gratitude journal, or even do a walking meditation to get some steps in pre-feast! The end of the year is the perfect time to reflect on everything that's happened for the year, and all we are grateful for. Plus it helps get our brains & digestive system in the right place!
Layering your meals in the correct order can be helpful for avoiding the holiday bloat, while still indulging in all your favorite foods. First, fiber is your friend! It keeps you full and is responsible for keeping the digestive system up and running. If possible, start your meal with a rich-source of fiber, such as vegetables or a side salad. Then, move into the proteins & fats to help you feel satiated and prevent overeating. Lastly, enjoy your carbs, whether it's the mac-n-cheese or the dessert table, eating them last will reduce a spike in blood sugar and prevent the sugar rush headache and fatigue post-meal!
