The holiday season is about to be in full swing! Use the tips below to help keep you and your family healthy this holiday season.
Set Your Priorities.
The holiday season is a BUSY time. Gatherings, volunteer opportunities, children’s activities, etc. The list seems to never end! To keep yourself sane, schedule out the month and if necessary cut a few things out. You won’t enjoy them anyways if you’re running yourself too much.
Give Up The Unnecessary Extras.
Do you really need to make 10 different types of cookies? Do you really need to wrap all of your gifts with ribbon and bows? Find a few extra holiday “things” that you can skip. Really, do it, your sanity and energy will thank you in the long run!
While traveling or going to an event with food, take a few extra minutes to plan ahead. Having healthy snacks in the car or at home before you attend an event will help keep you from binge eating all of the holiday treats.
No matter what you are doing, make sure you stay hydrated. It can be easy to forget water, especially on a chilly day. Staying hydrated will keep your body functioning at its best. It’ll also help flush out the holiday treats and drinks. Have water with you wherever you go, this is a good habit to keep year round!
Take a Quality Multivitamin.
The standard diet does not include all of the nutrients our bodies need to keep healthy. Our diets can be especially lacking during the holiday season when our days are filled with cookies and other nonessential treats. Try to keep your diet as balanced as you can throughout the holiday craziness. Including a quality multivitamin can help fill the gap.
Keep your body moving during the holiday season. With the typical increase in calories during this time, it's especially important to keep your body going. Those extra events and calories can leave you feeling lethargic, but if you just get up and going you will feel better!
Get Your ZZZ’s.
Make sure you are allowing yourself enough time for relaxation and sleep. Without a restful night’s sleep your immune system has a hard time keeping up.
Consistent chiropractic care can help keep everyone in the family healthy! Adjustments help restore the natural balance in the body and boost the immune system.
