Holiday Season Stress and Overeating

It's a fact...stress is going to happen! Here are some healthy techniques for dealing
with stress that will not disrupt eating healthy.
Whether we want to admit it or not, the holidays are here. Stores are getting ready,
and I have seen holiday commercials on TV! Stress can happen anytime of the year,
but it seems we are under much more stress getting ready for a house full of guests,
cooking, buying gifts, and everything else associated with the holidays. Yes, stress
is going to happen. How you react to it is up to you.
Some people reach for not-so-healthy food choices; such as chips, candy and high calorie
drinks. Rather than mindlessly eating your way through a half gallon of ice cream,
you may want to calm down and look for other options. Here are some healthy techniques
for dealing with stress that will not disrupt your diet plan.
Be aware that you will still have to face the stress – yes, it is still there, but
you have changed how you reacted to it and broken free of stress eating.
When you overeat due to stress, you are doing so as a way to feel less stress by overloading
on other senses. While this works to create a distraction, it will not make the stress
disappear. Staying focused on the here and now and weighing your options keeps you
from overloading on food.
Practice the pause, breathe, and think stress response at various times throughout
the day when stress seems to bring you down.
Choose peace and health when faced with a difficult situation.
This recipe is perfect for this time of year. It uses apples and pumpkin, both at
their peak during the fall months. Enjoy these for breakfast or as a snack.
