7 Pointers For Staying Healthy During The Holidays

The holidays can be a great time of the year.  However, during this time, it is sometimes difficult to stick to healthy habits.  The hustle and bustle of holiday shopping, parties, and other events coupled with the never-ending temptation of delicious holiday treats can test the willpower of many people.  so here are some simple things to help keep you happy and healthy during the holiday season.

1. Eat breakfast

When you eat a good breakfast, it sets a healthy tone for the day, which means you continue to choose nutritious foods for the rest of your meals and avoid mindless snacking.

2. Drink up

As soon as you wake up, drink a big glass of water and continue to sip throughout the day. Keeping my body hydrated gives you energy (for holiday shopping) and wards off hunger pangs in between meals, so you can save you calories for holiday treats.

3. Be thankful

The holidays are a time of giving thanks, so start each day by thinking about something you are thankful for in your life. Having a grateful attitude first thing in the morning positively affects the rest of your day.

4. Take a walk

Every afternoon, take a walk. Simply getting outside and moving makes you feel great. It gives you time away from the craziness of the season, so it clears your head and adds some physical activity to your day.

5. Stretch

Make it a point to get up and stretch every hour or so.  Taking a break and stretching eases tension in your body while helping you regain focus.

6. Find quiet time

With the hustle and bustle of the season, it's important to take some quite time for yourself. Try to find at least ten minutes a day to read a book or magazine, practice yoga, or just sit quietly.

7. Take a multivitamin

Although you may try your best to eat healthy during the holiday season, we all like to splurge, which means our food choices are not always incredibly nutritious. To make sure you fill any nutritional gaps in your diet, take a multivitamin every day.
