Deep breath, smile, the holidays are here. It can be the most wonderful time of the year or it can be the most overwhelming time of the year. We’ve put together a list of seven ideas to get the most enjoyment out of the holiday season – to have your most super holiday yet.
Enjoy the Magic
Pick a few things that you absolutely love to do and put them on the calendar. There are only three weekends in December before Christmas and Hanukkah. Find a music event, a spiritual event, a light display and a social event that you want to attend and plan the time for it. Less really is more when it comes to enjoying the holidays.
Savor the Sweets
There’s a time to diet and there’s a time to diet. Don’t feel like your healthy eating plan will come to a halt if you indulge in one or two sweets at holiday party.

Be grateful from the bottom of your heart. According to research,
Simplify Your Giving
Pare down your giving list. Or get creative. As one of your holiday activities, plan a baking night where you bake 3 to 4 items to create holiday baked good gift baskets or platters. You’ll get extra time with your family and your friends will love that personal touch. For those on your gift list, give gifts that can be enjoyed year-round like museum or zoo memberships. Or give the gift of health and wellness with gifts like Superberries Essential Combo.
Plan for a night in and give it a holiday theme. It could be board game night, cookie baking night, Christmas movie night or snowman building night. Make it as simple and relaxing as possible. Serve foods like popcorn and hot chocolate. Your family will love establishing this tradition.
Being well-rested can greatly increase your joy, energy and help you be in the moment. Don’t sacrifice sleep for getting the decorations perfect or baking 12 dozen cookies. Reach out and ask for help from family. Don’t give up your zzzz’s during the holidays.
