The holidays are a time to enjoy family traditions that include social gatherings, food and drink. Remember, in the swing of it all it is important to maintain your daily healthy routine.
Most important in bring cheer are:
Exercise- even if you are getting less than usual. Go out for a walk with others and enjoy the outdoors.
Sleep- this should be a priority for you. After a good night's rest you are less likely to be grumpy and more likely to have better energy. Give your self some alone time to unwind before going to bed.
Boundaries- it's ok to say "No" if you feel that you are over committing yourself and your family. Learn what feels good for you.
Sugar- this addictive food will zap your energy and decrease the immune response in the body.
Be Well and Happy Holidays,
