The holiday festivities can present daunting challenges in the management of type 2 diabetes. The fun festivities can also bring depression and feelings of stress and anxiety.
· Set priorities after deciding what is important to you, to prevent feeling overwhelmed.
· Plan adequately for the holiday season and ensure that you have time for glucose testing and for exercise.
· Enjoy family gatherings and other events by celebrating in moderation. Choose low-glycemic foods and beverages.
Try not to skip your workouts. Staying active during the holidays is important for your physical health, of course, but it can help relieve stress, too. Break exercise up into 10-minute chunks if that makes it easier.
