Redefine Indulgence

Learn to redefine indulgence by taking the focus off food and instead indulging in activities that leave you feeling relaxed and replenished. Minimize those that zap your energy, especially at this busy time of year. Everyone has a different idea about what makes him or her feel relaxed, but you may want to consider these:

  • Practice yoga
  • Try a new online guided visualization exercise
  • Enjoy quiet moments before the rest of the household stirs
  • Sit before a roaring fire or lit candles
  • Take brisk walks or slow strolls through nature
  • Get a massage, manicure, or pedicure
  • Create fun times with friends and families
  • Free up time by shopping online vs. in-store
  • Simplify food prep and gatherings
  • Sit back and truly enjoy friends and family
  • Pause to enjoy the snow on the trees, the clear starlit sky, beautiful decorations, or a child dressed in their holiday best
  • Turn off the news and find a relaxing book to read
  • Take a candlelit bubble bath
  • Listen to awesome holiday music
