Do you have any plans for St. Patty’s Day? Just asking because I want you to stay on top of your game. What I mean is Holidays are one of those things that usually throw people off track which causes them to lose site of their goals and promises they made to themselves at the beginning of the year. I don’t want that to happen to you! Think about the days ahead but take one healthy step at a time. I can help you with that. Let’s get the party started with some of these healthy options!
Ah, St. Patrick’s Day. While this was once a celebration that was rooted in tradition, today it seems to have become little more than an excuse to get incredibly drunk – at least for many people out there. Add to this the unhealthy meals usually associated with the holiday – greasy Rueben sandwiches, for example, and it becomes clear that those of us who are more concerned with our health need a better way to celebrate.
Instead of celebrating like most of the country this St. Patrick’s Day, consider some other options.
• Head to the gym! It’s likely to be a bit emptier than usual since others will be out partying, so you can get in a serious workout. Or you can sign up for one of my coaching, training or mentoring programs.
• Take a nature walk. Don’t get green beer – get green scenery by heading out into the spring air.
• If you really want to imbibe, a single glass of wine with dinner should suffice. Sparkling grape juice is a much better alternative, however, and well worth using instead.
St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t have to be about alcohol – and it’s only recently that it became focused on that. This year, choose a different approach.
