The holiday season can be so busy that many of us, often, let our health take a back seat. There are plenty of tempting, unhealthy, habits that we can pick up during this time of year. Here are five, simple, holiday habits you can adapt to make sure you stay in tip-top-shape through this hectic and fun season.
Drinking an excess of alcohol is one of the biggest problems people face during the holidays. The ideal of having “more fun” at parties and treating yourself can easily get out of hand. Drinking too much can equate to feeling much worse later on in the day, evening, next day, and some times more. Drink smarter and healthier this holiday season by sticking to champagne and dry wines which contain less sugars and carbs than eggnog, beer, and sweet wines. Stay hydrated and remind yourself to slow down by drinking water or a ginger ale throughout the night. Stay hydrated!
