Thanksgiving Tips

Thanksgiving can sometimes last the whole day, so you may want to be prepared. Whether you’re headed to someone else’s home or hosting a Thanksgiving meal at your own Hollywood, FL apartment. In this week’s Sunset Palms Blog, we’ve got a few tips for you on how you can make Thanksgiving just a little easier and more enjoyable.

Eat Slow

One of the downsides of Thanksgiving is the feeling you get after eating all of that food. Often times, people eat their fill, then spend the rest of the evening on the couch, regretting having eaten that much food. We suggest taking your time while consuming your meal. Eating slow allows your body time to recognize that it’s getting full, and also gives you time to catch up with your guests! Instead of being fully occupied with your meal, strike up a conversation with the people around you.

Help Out/Bring a Dish

One way to spend your Thanksgiving is by helping out. This tip applies to the people attending Thanksgiving meals at a friend’s or family member’s house. With the permission of the host, head over early to aid them in the food preparation and other tasks, or bring a side dish or dessert to share with others. Be considerate of other people’s allergies and other dietary restrictions.

Share What You’re Thankful For

Though it may seem cheesy, taking the time during your meal to express your gratitude and say what you’re grateful for out loud can be a good way to add to your Thanksgiving. Sharing what you’re thankful for can not only help you realize how much you have to be grateful for, but can also strengthen your relationships with your family and friends!
