I know that I go way overboard with my eating habits during the holiday season. Here is what my holidays look like:
It is all so delicious, but always leaves me feeling a little guilty and shameful by the time New Year’s rolls around. Does something similar happen to you too?
Mindful eating is difficult, but if we pay a little bit more attention and change a few small things, we can escape some of the guilt associated with holiday overindulgence. These are some suggestions to try. See what works for you.

In no way am I suggesting that you try to avoid all those tempting foods over the holidays. Depriving yourself only leads you to want it more, and then when you do have it you feel guilty. Indulge, just do so in moderation, and balance it out with the healthy stuff too!!
Happy Holidays and Happy Eating!
