5 Tips For Staying Healthy During The Holidays

To stay happy and healthy this time of year!

Can you even believe it’s 8 days until Christmas?  It’s been a crazy weekend as I’m trying to finish shopping, work projects, and getting everything ready as we prepare to leave to visit family for the holidays!  I’ll be the first to admit that I was feeling the stress creep in earlier this weekend so I had to take a step back to re-center myself.  It’s easy to let the busyiness of the holiday season overshadow the joy that is the real meaning we celebrate and come together.  If you’re in the same boat as me, I’m sharing a few of my tips (that I had to remind myself of this weekend!)


1.  Get out and play.

Take advantage of all the fun there is to do this time of year and get out to enjoy yourself!  Taking a mental break from all the todos and breathing in some fresh air sometimes is the best way to get disconnect.  Getting to the gym may be a struggle but you can still stay active just by enjoying all that the season has to offer!  If you have little ones, even better as you can do it all together!  Go ice skating, walk to see the holiday lights (we’re hitting up the Enchant light maze soon!), or even just play in the snow / leaves!  It’s a great opportunity to make some great memories!

2. Have a mindful moment first thing in the morning.

I used to check my phone first thing in the morning but I’ve realized that it just fueled my stress.  Instead, I now spend the first few moments when I wake up just thinking about what I want my day to look like.  Visualization is a huge factor for me in helping me achieve goals so I make sure I picture in my head the tone my day.   I actually find that it makes me more focused and less reactive, something that helps tremendously when unexpected events occur or when I’m juggling multiple tasks at once!


3. Nourish your body with fruits and vegetables

Fueling my body with fruits and vegetables gives me the stable energy to make it through my day without the highs and lows of sugar spikes.  Green juices and smoothies are a staple for me year round but even more so this time of year as I may not be able to fit in enough leafy greens otherwise.

4. Chew slowly. Choose your indulgences.

I’m not one for abstaining from all treats but I do try to choose my indulgences wisely.  I can’t say no to pumpkin pie so I’ll let myself have a few bites instead of finishing an entire slice.  Or share a dessert with others and split the calories while getting in some time with your friends / family!


5. Wear the skinny jeans.

It can be discouraging to step on the scale this time of year but my recommendation is to keep wearing your usual skinny jeans.  Personally, the way my clothes fit is the best way for me to know if I’ve indulged a little too much and need to scale back!
