7 simple tips to help your clients stay on track with the holidays

This is the most fun time of the year, but it is also the most challenging time for your clients to achieve healthy goals. The temptation is everywhere. From sugary flavors, summer cocktails and the stress of too many commitments, it has become difficult to focus on good habits and good health in the last few months of the year. With some planning and encouragement from you, they will enter the New Year better than ever.

Here are seven tips to share with your clients to help them commit to their health (both mental and physical) during the holiday season:

1. Practice awareness

Choosing healthy food does not have to mean equal deprivation. Your customers can still enjoy traditional holiday meals and even desserts. The key to smart eating is to make sure that all your attention is paid to eating. Encourage your customers to breathe deeply between meals. With each bite, they should focus on the taste of the food they eat and take the time to decide whether they are starving or actually full.

Too often, people eat unnecessarily and without thinking what and why they consume. By focusing on each bite, it is much easier to identify when you are satisfied and prevent overeating by distraction or boredom.

2. Plan ahead

If your customers have dietary restrictions or specific calorie goals, advise them to plan holidays and get-togethers. If they have a small healthy snack before arriving, they will feel fuller and less likely to get over-supplied. They may be able to provide a healthier version of sacred supplements or desserts. There are many recipes for delicious, low-calorie alternatives to rich, sugary foods that fall in love with most holiday tables. We recently took the time to come up with seven simple and healthy holiday exchanges that are perfect for today and other holiday gatherings. Who knows – your client can introduce the rest of the guests to their new favorite and plant the seeds for a healthier habit.

3. Stay hydrated

Our bodies need water and when dehydrated we often experience thirsty hunger. Encourage your customers to consume more water than usual. It helps keep your appetite under control, makes your skin drier in the winter months, fresher and healthier, and eliminates the endless storm of candy and snacks around the corner.

Since alcohol consists of empty calories, it is better to limit it or to avoid it altogether. However, if your clients plan to consume alcohol, remember that they should drink responsibly and replace a glass of water with each alcoholic beverage they consume. Not only does this reduce the amount of calories they consume, but it also slows down the effect of alcohol on the bloodstream and reduces the severity of the hangover symptoms.

4. Eat vegetables first

While it may be tempting to carbohydrate first, your customers will feel fuller and more satisfied when they fill their plates with healthy, vegetable-based dishes and eat them first. They can still enjoy a variety of decadent dishes. The key is just enjoying a few bites and using fresh vegetables and healthy sides as the main attraction of every meal.

5. Keep your goals in mind

Your clients have worked hard to achieve their health and fitness goals. They should refuse to let their hard work in the last months of the year or slow down development. Ask your clients to write down their goals and post them on your bathroom mirror, dashboard or other prominent place. Focusing is easier when the goals are front and center.

6. Stay spiritually and physically active

Holiday doesn't just mean food. It's an opportunity to connect with friends and family. If you focus on activity rather than food, your customers will not only avoid taking your diet off the rails, they will also feel better, more relaxed and ready to embrace the New Year. Encourage them to spend time with their family reading or preparing healthy meals. Another idea is to walk outside with friends or sled or skate. Even avoiding a buffet and finding a group to talk to is a long way from staying focused and reaching your health goals.

7. Be flexible and forgive yourself

It is realistic to assume that during the holidays the health rules are bent or broken. No one is perfect and everyone gets out of the way from time to time. It is important for your clients to remember that when they are eating poorly or being in poor health, they simply cannot feel guilty and defeated. They have to dust themselves down, remember they are only human beings, and decide to go back to achieving their goals.

Holidays are for enjoyment. While there are many foods, activities, and pressures that can take your clients off course, remind them that moderation is key, and if they temporarily lose, forgive them. Good health is a lifetime endeavor and cannot be permanently insured or destroyed in a single season.
