Ep 062 – Tips & Trends #3 – Thanksgiving Edition!

Tips & Trends #3 – The Thanksgiving edition! Because giving Thanks is always in season – even for virtual and live event professionals!

Tip 1 – Start every day and every event with an attitude of gratitude! 

Say thank you first thing when you wake up! In fact say it several times. Remember things you are thankful for. Like thanks for allowing me to wake up. To get out of bed. For my family. For a roof over my head. And if you can’t think of anything, just say Thank You over and over. Let it permeate your mind. Guarantee your entire day will be better!

And when planning an event – virtual or live – start by giving thanks for the opportunity to plan the event! Say thanks for the attendees who will be showing up, and give thanks all along the way. Do this and I bet you will get the best feedback and results! Try it!

Tip #2 – This Thanksgiving and throughout the holiday season, remember those who might be lonely. 

This has been a very tough year for the majority of us, and especially those who have not been able to leave home because of health reasons. Or those in nursing homes, hospitals, and assisted living. Reach out to them. Say hi. Even if it’s someone you haven’t talked to in a while. Even if its uncomfortable.

Do it anyway. It’s for them – not for you. Give a little bit of yourself for someone who is craving human connection. Ask questions. Share stories. Just be there and listen. You will get great rewards.

Tip #3 comes from Registered Dietitian Brittany Liberatore of Your Life Nutrition. Her Thanksgiving Tip is all about Mindset. 

OLD MINDSET – I can’t eat dessert and stay on track with my goals. I have to avoid all treats because I am on a diet.”

NEW MINDSET – I CAN enjoy dessert, eat it MINDFULLY and stop eating when I am full and satisfied. A portion of dessert won’t get me off track!

So don’t deprive yourself of the yummy foods on Thanksgiving and during the holidays! Just don’t overdo it! Eat until your satisfied. And if you do go a little overboard, don’t beat yourself up. Just get back on track! You got this!

Our Trend – eating healthier and living a healthier lifestyle during the holiday season this year! 

More people than ever are making a commitment to get a jump start on what they usually do after new years – make those resolutions to get in better shape! Think how much better shape you will be in if you exercise more and eat healthier starting now! Even if you do indulge here and there, you’ll love the shape you’re in come January 1st!
