How to practice mindful and intuitive eating around the holidays

Today on Instagram me (@productivedietitian) and Gisela from @bnutritonandwellness discussed the topic of "how to be mindful and intuitive during the holidays."

Highlights include:

1. The holiday is just another day

  1. checkout my video about the "holi-month" vs. holiday on instagram

2. Engage with your 5 senses

  1. sight, hear, taste, smell, touch

3. Mindful vs. intuitive eating

  1. Intuitive eating: focus on hunger cues vs. mindful eating: pay attention to the experience

4. If you're a parent treat remember that the holiday season is just like any other day or time

  1. We discussed the "family centered" approach and how to be a role model for our children

5. Keep-up with your everyday eating and exercise

  1. Modify your routine if needed, but focus on movement in a way that works for you

In closing, take the holiday season one meal at a time!
