The holidays are always a stressful and busy time of the year. It is also when we tend to get the most run down and therefore end up getting sick. Here are a few tips that can help you get through the holiday season, hopefully healthy and happy.
Don’t skip meals, especially breakfast. A regular meal schedule will allow you to be less famished and tend not to over-eat.
Get enough sleep. It is recommended that you get atleast 8 hrs of sleep per night. Try to go to bed at the same time and get up at the same time everyday.
Drink water. Keeping hydrated will reduce cravings as well as help the body flush out the toxins.
Eat before the party. Eating a meal or snack before a party lessen your chances of overeating at the party.
Go easy on the alcohol. For every glass of wine, beer or spirit, have a glass of water. This will help you to stay hydrated as well and help to cut back on the number of drinks that you have.
Don’t snack on candy. Sweets can cause a blood sugar spike that will affect your mood and as well cause the highs and lows of energy. If you still have halloween candy in your house throw it out!
Get active as a family. The holidays are family time. Get out and enjoy what your surroundings have to offer 🙂
Be it a spiritual time, a family time, or just a relaxing break – From all of us at Docere Wellness Centre, we wish you a healthy and joyful holiday season.
