As you’re gearing up for the festivities, try these tricks to add some mindfulness into your St. Patty’s Day:
- Park a little farther away from your party destination, so you have the opportunity to add some extra steps.
- Going to a potluck or buffet style restaurant with friends? Scan all your choices and then, choose healthier options, first.
- When deciding to indulge with dessert, slow down to really savor what you’re eating.
- If you do drink, drink in moderation and choose drinks without excess sugar and calories.
- If there’s music, dance! Get moving and get your heart rate up, plus, you’ll have a lot more fun!
