What tips do you have for managing stress over the holiday season?

The holidays can be a stressful time, especially when managing life with type 2 diabetes. Share any helpful tips for managing holiday stress with fellow community members to support them during the holiday season!

  1. Eat in moderation and in portions.

    1. Thanks for commenting. This is a great suggestion. Some find it helpful to pick up an appetizer size plate at a party to help keep portions smaller. Can always go back for more if needed. Appreciate you being part of our community. Best, Kelly, Type2diabetes.com Community moderator

  2. Eat a healthy snack before going to the holiday meal. A healthy snack may be a fiber - filled salad along with protein. This will decrease the risk of overeating or making poor choices at the holiday meal. Looking forward to the holidays, Community Moderator
