Health tip: I know I’ve said this before, but when consuming any fruits make sure you eat a protein with it, like nuts or eggs. If you are looking for sneaky ways to not gain 1,000 pounds during the holidays–eat snacks throughout the day (one of them consisting of a fruit and protein tied together). In doing this you keep your metabolism working and lower the sugar content of the fruit.

Laundry tip: Not only should you make sure all zippers are zipped before throwing anything in the wash or dryer, but hook together those bra straps too! Also, don’t put bras in the dryer, instead hang them up! Otherwise you risk damaging the underwire and shrinking them.

Parenting tip: We all know this one, but sometimes need reminding. Mean what you say and say what you mean. It’s crucial to be consistent! The holidays are a hectic time for schedules, so be patient and plan some extra activities or projects to keep the kiddos engaged.

Mental tip: Practice mindfulness for 10 minutes of your day. Concentrate on your breathing by inhaling slowly counting to 7 and exhaling slowly counting to 7. Repeat and Repeat, and If a thought trickles in bring yourself back to your breath.
