Thanksgiving, man. It’s a marathon, not a sprint. If you don’t take care of yourself, you’ll burn out and end up on the couch in a tryptophan daze. Activate these tips for a Thanksgiving THRIVE:
- Stock up on healthy, non-greasy snacks in the kitchen. You can snack as you cook, and you’ll be less-likely to face-plant in the stuffing later.
- Get outside! Join the neighborhood turkey trot or touch football game, or take the family on a nature walk to watch the colors change.
- Organize a crew. You can’t do all the cooking alone. Assign safe tasks to kids and knife skills to adults to get some prep work done in the kitchen.
- Don’t beat yourself up. It’s the holidays, a burnt casserole here or extra piece of pie there won’t hurt.
- Make clean up easy. If part of your crew didn’t cook, they get automatic dish duty. It’s only fair…
