The feast is over, so now what? Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I love the chaos in the kitchen and spending time with family. It’s all fun and games until after the meal. After the meal, the scene is very different. It’s in this time of self-induced misery that I am no longer thankful. I’m sure you know exactly what I’m talking about. We all think “Why did I eat so much? Why did I do this to myself? Was it really worth it?” Well here are some tips on how to handle the post-Thanksgiving meal blues and stay thankful through the seasons:
- Wear pants with a little room in them. I find that wearing stretchy pants or pants that are a size up during the holidays are very forgiving when I eat more than a normal person should during one meal. They leave room for your swollen belly and aren’t pushing on your insides. They also let you know that a little holiday weight never hurt anyone, so don’t be too hard on yourself.
- Start a Secret Santa list. Giving gifts is always more rewarding than receiving gifts. Think about a few people who have impacted your life recently and send them a secret gift to say thank you.
- Donate warm clothes. This is similar to #2, in that you are giving to someone else. Donating essentials that you normally don’t think twice about really makes you step back and realize what you have and how fortunate you are.
- Brush your teeth with Crest Pro-Health toothpaste. My mouth feels so fresh after using Crest Pro-Health toothpaste. Not only does it freshen breath, but after eating all that food it will help tartar and plaque. Halloween to Christmas is what I call “sugar season” and I do not hold back. Crest Pro-Health is my key to healthier gums and stronger teeth.
Another thing to be thankful for is this $2 coupon found in the 11/25 Sunday newspaper that will be good on a variety of Crest toothpaste, so you can continue to feel fresh throughout the coming holidays. It’s so easy to pick up when you are at Walmart getting all your Christmas cookie ingredients.
