The holidays are here! This means lots of celebrations filled with delicious food and drink. We firmly believe in enjoying ourselves while keeping our health and wellness in check so we've created a series of tips for staying healthy during the holidays:
My favorite tip from the ones listed above is the final one: don't feel guilty! Enjoy yourself and don't beat yourself up if you overdo it once in a while. Life is for living and having a good time! I also make it a point to continue intermittent fasting as much as I can throughout the holidays so my body has time to repair and rebuild itself. Have a look at our previous posts here and here to learn more about how intermittent fasting works.
Now let's have a look at the tips for healthy holiday drinking:
The key with drinking during the holidays is the same as eating - find a balance so you're able to have a good time without going overboard or being frustrated by restricting yourself too much!
Now on to fitness tips:
Make sure you get in some exercise over the holidays - even if it's just a walk at the park or a 15 minute stretch routine a day (Fitness Blender is an awesome resource and here is a link to one of their great stretch videos), your body and mind will thank you. Your body is the only place you have to live in, so give it the most love you possibly can and take care of it.
