Prime three Methods To Keep Wholesome At Thanksgiving By Inspirational Group At Shazzy Health
I think the most common question this time of year is, "What are your plans for Thanksgiving?" The answer is mostly about Thanksgiving dinner. Things like "I cook" or we go to a family or a friend's house. Once the location is determined, the second highest answer is probably the menu. The only plan I've never mentioned personally is a plan to stay healthy on Thanksgiving.
In hospital emergency rooms, the number of patients they see on Thanksgiving increases significantly compared to other days of the year. Many of these visits are due to stress, excessive eating or drinking, and improper food handling. One thing we can do about this Thanksgiving Day is to add a plan to stay healthy. In order not to overwhelm you with another “task”, we limit ourselves to three things.
- First, avoid unnecessary stress that makes a significant contribution to the disease. Whether you're just cooking for your immediate household or hosting a crowd, planning your food and shopping is critical. Proper planning significantly reduces stress and makes it easier to get help when needed.
- Second, it helps you understand food safety guidelines, such as: B. how long certain foods (especially meat and seafood) need to be cooked to avoid food-borne illnesses such as food poisoning. Make sure you have enough containers and space in the fridge to properly store the food. Immediately storing food is just as important as thoroughly cooking it.
- Third, you plan to maintain your personal wellness routine that encompasses your entire being: mind, soul and body. During the holidays it is very easy to neglect yourself and to get back on track after the holidays. We have to remember that self-care is not selfish. We cannot neglect our quiet time with our heavenly Father. Let us introduce our plans to him and listen to his instructions. There is no better stress buster than to focus on what we are thankful for.
In order to maintain our personal well-being, we have to plan our food, our exercise and our rest periods. One of the biggest challenges we face not only on Thanksgiving, but also in the days before and immediately after, is the abundance of foods that we love and that we only eat on and around the holidays. So a plan can help us include our favorites in our healthy eating routine.
Time to go to the gym may not be feasible, but we can find creative ways to maintain our level of activity. Parking a little further away in the supermarket, making music while we prepare the house and the food, and my favorite: dancing while I'm waiting. And one of the most important things we can do to stay healthy is to make sure we get enough rest. A good night's sleep is a good start to a good and productive day.
May God bless you abundantly and you have a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving!
