Tips for a Balanced, "Good Life" this Holiday Season

Posted: November 19, 2012

The holidays are among the most exciting times of the year, but can also be the most hectic, causing you to become out of balance from your normal routine for eating, activity and everything in between.

To help, Hershey’s Moderation Nation—a go-to website on how to create a happy, well-balanced life—has gathered Good Life Gurus Kelsey Nixon (Cooking Guru) and Jennie Finch (Family Activity Guru) to share tips to help kick off a "Good Life Holiday" season. 

“Finding time for family and activity to even out everything else going on during the holidays is so important. As a mom, my ‘Good Life Holiday’ is all about family traditions, but the athlete in me always tries to keep them active and fun,” says Finch. “Just because it’s cold out doesn’t mean you can’t grab a coat and head outside. Use an inner tube or even a cookie sheet and go sledding with your kids if it’s snowy, or play old-fashioned tag when family comes to town. If you’re indoors, get your kids to help you decorate the house for the holidays.”
