Fighting Holiday Fatigue

Small Changes Make a BIG Impact

  • I don't drink at all anymore, I'm never more grateful for sobriety than during the holiday season.
  • Keeping a balance is important. Learn how to say no to certain things
  • Diabetics have to eat low carb.
  • I actually lowered my daily carb intake. I am not Keto but I think lower carb intake is beneficial to weight loss. Some good tips here but I think, like all suggestions, you find the ones that work for your journey.
  • Walnuts contain twice as many antioxidants as peanuts, almonds, pecans, and pistachios.
  • Agreed that most of the tips here are good, but I really wish they'd stop bashing on low carb on here. 'Low carbs are guaranteed to make you more fatigued'. That's not true for everyone (at least not for me) so it's not guaranteed. There are many people whose bodies do not deal with carbs and sugars the way most people can (look at how many type 2 diabetics and pre-diabetics there are). And carbs make me exhausted and give me bloodsugar crashes and binges. So when I lower them I feel much, much better. If you do lower carbs though, make sure to not just eat protein but eat plenty of green and other not-so starchy vegetables! That's what most people forget. I've been able to keep my diabetes pretty well controlled with diet and exercise alone. I just hope this site will start to see that every body reacts differently to foods and that there is no 'one size fits all' solution.

  • great article! its good to know the various activities also aid weight loss...
  • This was great! It broke down so many things for my that I printed it and saved it! Something this easy to understand I need around year long.
  • I need to do a better job of getting more sleep and rest. Today, I feel exhausted, so much so I want to go crash in some corner someplace. That's the one tip on this list that means the most to me. If I could take the steps needed to get more sleep, I'd feel better, more refreshed more often.
  • Excellent article!!! Sure hope many read it and heed the good advice given here. I get weary just thinking of how much I always did over the holidays, including special activities with my students, church and my own family. I never asked others to contribute to a dinner because they didn't make dishes just the way I did and I wanted everything just so. The last few years my husband and I have been away for the holidays so no longer fuss like in years past. The kids have to establish their own family traditions.
  • Great article and excellent ideas. I do Thanksgiving every year - I really enjoy it - but I've learned that I really can't do everything. Now everyone pitches in - even my young niece and nephews. They really do enjoy contributing and knowing that they played a part in Thanksgiving.
    On the note about slipping exercise in - I wear my sneakers to work and keep my good shoes at my desk. This way, I can go out for a walk at lunch. Sometimes I can't get out for a walk, but do need to go to the bank or somewhere. Since I wear my sneakers, I can at least make the walk to whereever I have to go invigorating.
  • Great article. I think this is the most difficult time of the year to get through and be healthy. I'm determined this year to stay on track, so I celebrate the New Year with joy and happiness and NOT regret.
