During a time when so many of our favorite pastimes have been put on hold, it’s especially important to find healthy ways to feel comforted. That’s why we’re here to help you celebrate the holidays, without having to constantly stress over your type 2 diabetes. It’s our wish that, with a little planning and support, you’ll be able to enjoy the simple pleasures of the season.
Here are a few tips to help you celebrate smarter this holiday season.
Build types of movement into your day. If you’re struggling to prioritize exercise each day, try mixing things up. Take a masked, socially distanced walk with a friend, sign up for an online yoga class, or dance to an upbeat playlist in your living room. The key is to just get your body moving in a way that feels good for you.
Prioritize nutritious foods. The holidays can be synonymous with overindulgence. By filling your home with whole, nutritious foods and experimenting with healthy recipes, like our low-carb appetizers, you can feel satisfied throughout the holiday season.
Get support with Level2. As an empowering diabetes care company, Level2 utilizes wearable technology and personalized care to help you get started on the path to remission. With real-time insight, you can eat more of the foods that work well for your body and less of those that don’t. We’re here to eliminate the guesswork!
Plan ahead. By looking at the week ahead and prepping your meals, you’ll be better able to make decisions that work well for your body. Try cooking a large batch of your favorite healthy dish at the start of each week, ensuring that you’ll have easy go-to meals to get you through the busy days ahead.
Stay hydrated. If you’re struggling to get your ounces in, try carrying around your own reusable water bottle and add cucumbers or citrus to add a little taste.
This holiday is feeling much different than usual, but we hope you’re still able to find ways to experience joy – and we’re here for you every step of the way.
