8. Never show up hungry

You will be much less likely to overeat foods that could make you feel bad later if you don’t show up to a party in a ravenous state. Eat a little protein before attending any get together that is serving food and you can choose wisely knowing your blood sugar levels are on an even keel.


9. Become a germapho

This is the time of year when you will be in the presence of more people than usual. Make sure to wash your hands often and carry around hand sanitizer so you can keep as many germs at bay as you can. You will be surprised at the number of people who don’t cover their mouths when they cough or wash their hands after they sneeze and then want to shake yours.


10. Don’t skip any meals

If you think that skipping lunch will mean you will eat less at the dinner party that night, think again. Being hungry will put you in a stressed-out position and you will have already eaten more than you would have for lunch and dinner before your hunger feels satisfied.


11. Choose wisely

Yes, you are going to be faced with some tempting foods and beverages. And no, it doesn’t mean you have to go cold turkey and deprive yourself of just a taste here and there. (You’re just setting yourself up for a major binge later to make up for the sacrifice you made.) Decide which items are worth the calories and which ones are not and just take a nibble.

12. Relax, it’ll be over before you know it

Don’t get so caught up in the hubbub of the season that you don’t enjoy it. Relax, take a deep breath, and try to be mindful of the moment and enjoy every second. It will be over before you know it. It’s up to you as to what kind of memories you make of it.
