3 Survival Strategies for Thanksgiving Stressors

While the Thanksgiving holiday is intended to be a day of giving thanks, it can also be a day of stress. Here are some tips to help you survive travel, relatives, and the buffet line.

  1. Travel early and pack light. With so many families traveling and notoriously bad weather conditions, allow yourself extra time for your trip.  Pack light because planes and busses are expected to be full.
  2. Prepare your house properly for guests. To ease family stress, prepare by putting away breakable valuables, renting kids movies, stocking up on healthy snacks, and planning an out-of-the-house activity to somewhere local, like a museum or zoo. 
  3. Fill your plate with greens and drink water. To reduce your portions of heavy foods like potatoes and bread, try filling up your plate with non-starchy veggies and salad first.  It also helps to drink a glass of water before each course to avoid overeating and help you stick to your healthy diet.
