3 Health Tips for the Holiday Season
December is usually known for an abundance of eating and a lack of exercise. Just because it is the holiday season, doesn’t give us an excuse to put on weight. Celebrating doesn’t have to include in eating & drinking a lot. It is a time to bring back the focus on enjoying your family & friends & then traditions of the holidays.
This time of year doesn’t have to be a time to lose weight, but you don’t want to get behind on your health either. Here are 3 health tips for the holiday season to help you stay ahead for the new year.
#1 Be Active
This is one of the hardest things for me to do during the holiday season. Your schedule gets crazy and you are traveling all over the place to visit family. But you want to make sure you stick to your schedule. Schedule your workouts just as you would any other appointment. It’s ok if you miss a couple days, but make sure that you get some activity in at least 3-4 days per week.
#2 Stay Hydrated
One of the best tips I can give anyone during this time would be to stay hydrated this holiday season. Keep your water bottle with you at all times and try to drink half your body weight in ounces of quality water each day. I always try to drink AT LEAST 50-64 ounces a day no matter what. And I drink even more if I will be drinking alcohol.
Here are some of my favorite water bottles.
#3 Get Adequate Sleep
You are going to get plenty of opportunities to stay up late, catch up with family, stay out late or meet old friends at the bar. But it is very important for you to make sure you still get enough sleep. I always try to get about 7-8 hours a night in order to stay fresh but you may be different. Do what is best for YOU!
