The summer always seems to fly by so quickly! I can’t believe Labor Day is this weekend and the end of Summer is already here. I know for me, September always feels like a time to get back to routine and get refocused. And although you may be looking at this weekend as your “last hurrah” before you get focused, you can indulge and enjoy without completely going crazy.
Here are 3 easy tips to follow while you enjoy your Labor Day weekend:
- Load up on Veggies: Snack on raw veggies or have a salad first. This will help fill you up and keep you feeling full longer.
- Drink plenty of water: Especially if you’re spending time outside in the heat. And if you’re drinking alcohol, mixing in water will help you stay hydrated and keep you from going overboard.
- Be mindful but enjoy: If there’s some item that you really love, go enjoy it, but do so in moderation. Being mindful yet still indulging will help you feel satisfied and not feel deprived.
