What Is Your Definition Of a True Christmas
Posted 12/09/2021, By Michael Cavalier – Editor
How do you get into a giving spirit during the holidays if you don’t have a lot of money to spend on gifts for your loved ones? Giving back is a great way for everyone to get involved. Whether it be volunteering in your community, donating to charity, or, so why not do what we can to help others around us who aren’t as fortunate. If you don’t know where or how you can give back.
As another alternative, consider visiting people who are unable to come to see you. You might also consider volunteering at a shelter or food bank—time spent serving others can be very fulfilling and rewarding for your whole family! As always, we hope you have fun and enjoy yourself on Christmas Day or whatever other holiday or celebration day you choose to spend time with friends and family celebrating their love for each other. We wish all of our readers out there a happy holiday And Merry Christmas, Happy Hanika from everyone here at Truth Seeking Truth(Truthseekingtruth.com).
When planning a holiday feast, keep in mind that all calories are not created equal. Foods with low-calorie density tend to curb cravings and prevent binge eating better than foods with high-calorie density. Vegetables and fruits (especially citrus fruits), lean proteins, whole grains, healthy fats, and nuts all make good options for guests looking to limit their meal’s calorie count without missing out on flavor.
A true celebration is about bringing people together in a commonplace—and at a common table—to share food and drink, experiences and love. So when preparing food for your company, be sure to plan dishes that balance taste and nutrition. Simple does not have to mean boring or bland; there are many ways you can prepare classic dishes so they fit within your calorie limits while still tasting good.
Smaller portions will also help guests feel less weighed down after a meal, meaning they’ll enjoy themselves more during your gatherings. In fact, recent research shows that limiting serving sizes may be even more effective than banning unhealthy items altogether when it comes to curbing overeating during parties. In one study published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), researchers found just limiting portion size helped participants consume fewer calories without feeling hungry or dissatisfied by their meals; no willpower necessary!
When we get together with family and friends during a holiday, our sense of community is at its peak. Instead of seeing everyone in your life once or twice a year—during vacations or other holidays—it’s good to make an effort to see them more often. This will only improve your relationships, which are an important part of what makes us happy.
And that kind of happiness can help make for better health too; having strong social connections can reduce stress levels, boost immunity and even ward off heart disease. Sounds like something worth celebrating if you ask me! The New York Times reports a wealth of scientific evidence behind why people should try to be around those they love—especially during holidays. So bust out some tinsel and deck out your favorite space with holiday-themed decorations.
Get out from behind that computer screen and invite old friends over for dinner – despite that embarrassing cat video fiasco from last Thanksgiving (or any time since). Even putting aside long-term goals, feeling truly cared about by loved ones on Christmas day is likely one of the best feelings ever. If you don’t already have them, now’s as good a time as any to start gathering those kinds of meaningful connections…and give yourself some great excuses for indulging in fatty food!
God Bless America, God Bless the Veterans
