If you go to the party on an empty stomach, chances are you're going to eat more than your body really wants to. We recommend eating something light before you leave—not a whole meal, but a snack—so you're not starving when you get there.
By choose wisely, we mean make good choices in terms of the quality of food you're eating, and the portion size. We never recommend avoiding certain foods—it is the holidays, after all! There are so many foods we only get during this time of year, so if
you have a favorite, don't feel guilty for indulging in it.
Hydration is very important for your overall health. Whether you're drinking alcohol or not at your holiday office party, you want to make sure you're staying hydrated throughout the night. And what's a holiday party without good conversation? Nobody wants to be that
person just standing by the food table not talking to anybody. So, also make an effort to connect with others during your office get-together.
Drinking too much alcohol at your office holiday party can lower your guard and make you act ridiculous. It can lead to arguments, or you dancing on a table (or something worse). Don't be the person who drinks too much and then makes a spectacle of themselves. Your
behavior will go down as legend, and you may even end up losing your job altogether.
