A Thankful November

This time of year we take a break from our busy lives and schedules to thank our loved ones for all their support and care over the years. Instead of focusing on food, what better way to show your loved ones you care than to help them and yourself put health first. Here are a few simple ways to show your loved ones you care:
• A simple phone call can go a long way. If you’re like me, you have every intension of calling an old friend to catch up but by the time you get home and unwind, all you want to do is go to sleep. We all know time is precious so take the time to call your friends if for no other reason than to let them they were on your mind.
• Go for a walk. Pick a day to meet with a friend regularly for a 20 minute brisk walk. Just a 20 minute walk equals about one mile, during which you can catch up on what’s going on in your lives, take some time for yourself to de-stress and burn about 100 calories.
• Plan a family activity. Whether it’s the whole family, a spouse or friends, strive for participating in at least one group activity per week for the month of November. You can ride bikes, have a field day or even a game night. Just spending quality time together without phones or television interrupting brings people closer.
• It is typical in our society to show love through food so if you just feel the need to give the gift of food make it healthy. Be sure you’re not setting your friend up for failure if you know they’re trying to eat well this holiday season. Instead of bringing someone their favorite dessert that is impossible for them not to eat all in one sitting, give them a healthy dish already portioned for them. Ask for the same courtesy in return.
