Healthy for the Holidays Tip from Dylan Cutler, aka @phruitfuldish: Prioritize Your Mental Health⠀
All the cauliflower and cardio in the world won't keep our hearts healthy if we can't stay calm and cool as a cucumber. I say this after experiencing my own panic attack just a few days ago. Many of us experience holiday stress whether it be from our endless to-do lists, that final push to complete work/projects before the holidays arrive, or even the increase in socializing with family and friends which can be anxiety-provoking.
I have been reminding myself to prioritize my mental health which means proactively scheduling time each day for some of my own self-care practices: meditation, restorative yoga and weight lifting. Just five minutes of deep breathing can center and remind myself that I am safe, capable, and exactly where I need to be in this moment.
