What will you give yourself?
What will you do to keep from over-indulging during holiday gatherings? Many people justify overeating (especially during the winter holidays) by convincing themselves that they "deserve a break, need to relax or unwind, or want to celebrate" and food and high (but empty) calorie drinks are a great way to do that. While it might be socially acceptable behavior in many places, food and alcoholic drinks don't have to be the center of your holiday world. Chances are, over-eating won't help you reach your health goals and will likely make you feel worse. Instead, convince yourself that you deserve to feel good and have good health over the long term. See yourself in your mind as you want to be and feel. Then pursue new ways of "giving yourself a break, unwinding and celebrating." And when you find yourself at a holiday gathering, enjoy by being selective about what you GIVE yourself.

Face-to-face on ice skates
The last few times I've been ice skating, I have noticed that young people (especially) seem to be less engaged with their cell phones while they're on the ice. I imagine there are several reasons for this--the most obvious being that ones moving body will crash into someone or something if you aren't paying attention to where you're going. But I also think that many young people aren't as comfortable on skates as they are walking around and are thus preoccupied with learning not to fall rather than reading their latest tweet. Skating also tends to be a social event....yep. Good old fashioned face-to-face interaction-- laughing, talking and holding hands. It's the kind of stuff I remember when I was a teen. And research shows that teens don't do as much of this as they used to. So no matter what the reason for this old fashioned social skating phenomenon, I think it can provide friends and families with the kind of time away from technology that we all need. So make a point to try it. The Dublin Chiller has a wide variety of skating times. It's great exercise for your mind and body (strengthening core, legs, ankles) too. On average, a 150 lb person burns 230 calories skating for 30 minutes. --Leslie Dybiec, Communications Manager
