It's the holidays and through New Years,  we will continue to be surrounded by delicious food. How can we avoid packing on the pounds – without giving up our favorite foods? Here are some helpful tips to keep your eating in check:

  • Take control the moment you wake up – Recognize that you will be tempted and just vow to not stuff yourself silly.
     
  • Don't skip breakfast – By skipping breakfast, you will be more likely to overeat later on.
     
  • Load your plate with variety, not volume – Instead of heaping your plate with tons of food, take a couple of your favorite items to nibble on. Enjoy everything, but not in mass quantities.
     
  • Forget the "all or nothing" mindset – Instead, think "moderation" and choose a smaller plate if you start craving larger portions.
     
  • Savor it all – Tasting food before swallowing leaves us feeling more satisfied, which might take the edge off our hunger before a party.

Christmas is almost here, and spending time with family can be the best — and worst — part of the holidays. Cramped quarters, conflicting personalities, and childhood baggage means tensions can run high, especially when you don't have any time to yourself. But with a little creativity, you can find ways to squeeze in alone time, and avoid a meltdown. Here are a few:

  • Offer to be the errand-runner: If you're craving a little time to yourself, speak up when your mom mentions she's out of sugar. Even a few minutes in the car blasting music (or just sitting in silence) can be enough to pull you back from the brink.
  • Go for a walk: Can't take another second of togetherness around the fire? Suggest a brisk after-dinner walk. True, you usually can't get away with doing this one all by yourself, but even the most grating of family members can be more palatable outdoors in the crisp air. And if all else fails, walk fast.
  • Put on your dishwashin' gloves: Offering to take on clean-up duty is a double whammy. You'll earn brownie points for pitching in, and since only so many helpful hands can tackle a sink of dishes, you'll get a little QT with just you and the suds.

When you don't want to slip your super, hairstylist, or babysitter an envelope of cash, it's appropriate to buy them a present instead, says Lizzie Post, coauthor of Lizzie Post's Etiquette, 18th Edition. Follow these guidelines:

1. Spend roughly the amount you would have given in cash.

2. Don't explain why you wanted to gift instead of tip. Just hand over the gift and thank them for their services.

3. If you know the person pretty well, pick out a gift for them as you would for a friend (in other words, get them something related to one of their hobbies or interests). If you don't know them well, buy a classic gift.

When it comes to holiday shopping, a lot of us are making things way harder than they have to be.

The Journal for Consumer Research, Inc. found that we tend to avoid getting people on our Christmas list the same gift, even if we think that person will really like the gift.

Apparently we look at buying the same gift for multiple people as taking the “easy way out.

For the study, researchers conducted a series of six experiments to see how participants selected gifts for others. Turns out, when picking a gift for one person, the participants were more likely to choose something they thought the recipient would genuinely like. But when shopping for multiple people, participants were hesitant to get more than one person the same type of present (even if they thought both recipients would like it).

"People will avoid getting the same gift for more than one person because it feels like the easy way out," says co-study author Mary Steffel, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the department of marketing at the University of Cincinnati. What's more, they'll do this even when they know the recipient might prefer something else.

The solution? Just focus on what you think each person on your list would like—and don't worry if that sometimes is the same thing for multiple people.

As difficult as it is to admit, there are some things about life that will never change. Politicians will always do shady things. Your mom will always be slightly passive aggressive at the dinner table. Your feet will always hurt after an hour in high heels. Resist these truths if you want, but it’s futile. Life is so much easier when you accept the inevitable. Below are some things that you shouldn’t waste your energy fighting. The sooner you give in, the better. Trust us on this one.

1. People act weird in elevators.

2. Your parents will never stop annoying you.

3. Chicken soup does cure colds.

4. You should buy the size you wear and not the size you wish you wore.

5. Quick fixes and workarounds usually just make things worse.

6. Eating lots of junk food makes you feel like shit.

7. You sleep better with clean sheets and life makes more sense when you get enough sleep.

8. Women act like crazed wildebeests at sample sales.

9. You should call your grandparents even if you don’t feel like it.

10. Your partner will never be able to read your mind.

11. Public transportation brings out the worst in human nature.
