BRING YOUR BEST HEALTHY SELF TO THE HOLIDAYS!
Healthy Holidays Ornaments
Is it too soon to think about the holidays? We don't think so! 
Start now to bring your best healthy self to the holiday festivities

Between buying gifts, hosting and going to parties, trying not to break your healthy habits (or your budget), and attending family gatherings, the "most wonderful time of the year" can also be a very stressful time of the year. That's why it's important to make time for self-care before and during the holidays. Think of yourself as an athlete who is getting ready for a big event - the holidays - and start training now!

November Wellness Webinars are great resources to help you build your self-care "health for the holidays" plan:

Mindful Mondays presents the "Cultivating Series."  Are you feeling like you are on auto-pilot, going through the motions without actually being engaged in the present? Then "Cultivating Greater Engagement in Your Life" is for you. With so much going on in our lives, do you feel like you have a monkey mind? Learn how to calm down the chattering monkey mind in "Cultivating a Stable Mind." Is it hard to accept when things don't work out as you planed? Learn the art of acceptance in "Cultivating Acceptance." And, just as we get in full holiday mode by month's end, join "Cultivating Joy." 

Looking for a healthy twist on a favorite Thanksgiving dish? Chef Sandra's Tuesday Wellness from the Kitchen showcases a new way to do sweet potato casserole (hint: smoked mozzerella gives this casserole an especially delicious flavor!)

Healthy U Wednesdays presents "Holiday Health" with tips to keep your family (and yourself) emotionally and physically well during the holidays, how to be curb  emotional eating (cookies, pumpkin pie, and eggnog, oh my!) and ways to enjoy a holiday meal without regrets

Health Promotion Thursdays Diabetes Awareness: While our theme this month is focused on "Health for the Holidays", let's take some time to acknowledge November as "Diabetes Awareness Month".  An important area of diabetes self-care is understanding your risk for diabetes and how to prevent it. Also, learn more about the link between diabetes and oral health and ways to keep your smile bright and beautiful.

And, just in time for the weekends, Unwind Time Fridays! Hit the pause button and reset your mindset after a hectic week (and before a weekend of holiday shopping) with these 15-minute reflection meditations

Ready for a bright holiday season filled with health and joy?

Get your “snow glow” on as you pile up 15 inches of snow each week by recording progress in nutrition and exercise activities. Plus, there’s a fun and simple well-being activity called Gift Box that changes daily for a gift of health every day! 

By logging your activity, you “paint” part of a magical winter scene from around the world. You’ll reveal the location and see it come to life as you practice habits to feel your best this holiday season. It's a great way to get into the holiday spirit!
