Warriors always have a strategy. If you leave your health up to chance, especially during the holidays, you’re setting yourself up to fail. Here are six simple tips we use to keep our Brain Warriors on track during the holiday, which happens to be when people get the sickest and have the most reported number of heart attacks (yep Christmas Eve). If you’re one of the people complaining that eating healthy during the holiday is a drag, try eating hospital food. Or that it’s too expensive to eat healthy… Have you seen the price tag on a day in the hospital?
Every warrior knows that the most successful battles are the ones you never have to fight because you’ve prepared so well, you win before you engage. If you keep healthy snacks with you, eat prior to attending the junk food fest, and take your own healthy desserts (leading as an example), you will likely prevent the necessity of these six steps. But as a Brain Warrior, we want you to have a plan for your back-up plan.
Our desire is for you to feel vibrant this holiday season so that you may focus on all that is truly important to you. If these tips are helpful please send me your feedback and forward them to someone you love. Whether you’re a health warrior now or a warrior in training, I want to set you up for success!
