5 Tips for a Healthy Holiday Season

Happy Thanksgiving!  I wanted to let all of you know that I am grateful for you.    I truly appreciate you taking the time to read my weekly emails/blog posts.  My goal is to help as many people as I can to live a healthier lifestyle.  I know that the holidays can be a stressful time and sometimes that means your health can take a toll.  This next month, I challenge you to make you and your health a priority during the holiday season.  Be thankful for your health, make it a priority, create a plan and stick to it so you can be healthy and be present with your family and friends this year.

Here are a few tips to get you started:

  1.  Find a routine and stick with it.  Set a bed time, set a wake up time, and schedule in time for yourself.  A routine will allow you get more done, have more time to relax and save your mental health.

 

  1. Do something active every day.  This could be as easy as getting out and taking a walk, hitting the gym for a class, strength training or going to the yoga studio.

 

  1. Stick to YOUR nutrition plan.  Allow yourself grace, but eat in a way that makes you feel good.  You don’t want to feel bloated, inflamed or uncomfortable while trying to be social with friends and family.

 

  1. Stay hydrated.  Drink plenty of water.  A good rule is to drink ½ your body weight in ounces of water per day.  You will want to increase this amount if you are drinking diuretics, such as coffee and alcohol.

 

  1. Find balance.  Don’t over indulge but don’t deprive yourself.

This year during the holiday season be thankful for your health and make it a priority.  You will feel so much better starting the New Year knowing you made yourself and your health a priority.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Be Well,
