Tips for a Balanced Thanksgiving

Balanced Thanksgiving

Today I’m sharing a checklist of quick tips you can do the morning of Thanksgiving to help you feel at peace, content, and ready to start your day (without the urge to binge on all the food and then restrict the following day).

**Side note: this checklist could be done any morning before anything!**

___ Write out on paper how you want the day to look, sound, and feel like for you. This grounds you in the experience you want.

___ Repeat 3 positive, strong affirmations out loud.

• “I honor my body today by eating an amount that will leave me feeling good.”
• ” I listen to my cravings.”
• “I enjoy the day because of the loved ones around me, food is just a bonus.”

___ Tune into your body. Turn on some music and dance. Ask yourself how you want to move and do a little bit of that. Take it easy on yourself – there’s no need to punish before the day starts.

___ Sit quietly with your eyes closed and remind yourself what you are grateful for. Expressing gratitude brings positive things into your life, and takes the focus off of any food anxieties or worries.

There you have it! Altogether this checklist can take as little as 10 minutes or as long as 40, whatever you want!

If you use it — let me know by commenting on Instagram or shooting me a quick email at , I’ll be doing all these things Thanksgiving am too! 🙂

Have a great day,
