Here at ReVital, women’s health is important to us. At the same time, we want you to enjoy this holiday season feeling healthy and happy! The holidays are full of stressors, and we know that women end up taking on a lot of responsibilities for their families during this time. It’s why we want to offer tips to help you have a healthy and happy holiday season. The healthier you are, the more you will be able to relax, enjoy the festivities, and embrace every special moment.
Getting overwhelmed during the holiday season is typical. There are so many pressures. Use a realistic timeline so that you don’t have to face all the events and plans in a way that’s stressful. Write down your plans on a calendar, so you know where you have to be and go during the week. And, be sure to even schedule in time for yourself – as always, you deserve it.
At holiday parties, keep drinking to a minimum. After a glass of wine, drink a glass of water. Also, be sure to avoid alcohol on an empty stomach. Alcohol tends to increase your appetite, so you can actually end up eating more than necessary. Lastly, never drink and drive. Call a sober friend or opt for one of the many ride share options like Uber or Lyft.
When walking around the buffet table, avoid over-indulging by making room for veggies, and filling up your plate to a minimum. Eat slowly and enjoy every bite.
We all tend to get a little too comfortable during the holidays. We all deserve a lazy day on the couch with the family, but we also want you to be healthy. So, be sure to stay active even if it’s just a brisk walk every day.
Pay Attention to What Matters
Instead of focusing on all the stress, and overindulging this holiday season, take time to be grateful and focus on what really matters: Loved ones. If you’re lucky enough to be surrounded by family and friends, let that be enough to bring you plenty of laughter and cheer this season.
