Our physical wellness truly does affect our mental and emotional well-being. So everything we do and share is about getting you into healthy – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. This holiday season we want you to remember to focus on the positive and just let go of those negative things and people around you that you really can’t change or do anything about. Give yourself the gift of LOVE by making wiser choices for your self – your body and your life. Today we’re sharing part 1 of a two-part series on healthy holiday tips below. Enjoy!

Healthy Living Tips

The holidays are meant to be just that – holidays – but a lot of people find this time of year more stressful than wonderful. Worries about family dynamics, party preparation, and overeating can often overshadow enjoyment and turn the season from jolly to dreary. Here are 10 tips to boost your spirits and nourish your body through the New Year!

  1. healthy-eating holidaysDon’t skip meals, especially breakfast. Keeping a regular meal schedule will keep you from being famished by the time the big meals roll around.
  2. Sleep. It improves everything.
  3. Keep it manageable. Whether you’re throwing the party or attending six of them, just make sure your plans are within reach. Make fewer delicious dishes, or cut down your RSVPs to whatever you can handle with pleasure, not pain.
  4. Don’t worry. Remember what the season is really about to you, and keep a positive outlook.
  5. Breathe. Find a quiet place, breathe in for 5 counts and out for 10 a few times, and center yourself.
  6. Drink water. Staying hydrated is key, not only for reducing cravings, but also for making sure you can keep up with the holiday rush!
  7. Eat beforehand. Whether it’s a meal a few hours before the big meal or a handful of veggies on your way out the door to a party, it’s definitely better not to get famished.
  8. Bring a dish. Check with your hostess first, and if it’s all right, you can bring a dish you know you can feel good about indulging in.
  9. Go easy on the alcohol. After a few drinks, you might find your resolve to stick to your health goals quickly diminishing. If you steer clear of the booze, your head and your body will thank you the next day.
  10. Only go for your holiday favorites. Love sweet potatoes but don’t much care for the green bean casserole? Choose reasonable portions of the dishes you love most and leave the others on the table.
