5 Tips – Stay Healthy During the Holidays

 

Don’t let the 90 degrees plus weather we’ve been experiencing in Southern California fool you, the holidays are fast approaching! Here in the U.S., we like to kick of Fall and Winter with holiday festivities which translates into a lot of face stuffing! It’s easy to fall out of your groove during the winter. The sun shines less, outdoor activities come to a halt, and you starved yourself during summer so why not take a cheat month or two?

While winter gently pushes you into patterns of laziness try to avoid this common life trap!

Staying healthy and in shape is a continual process. It might not always be fun and sometimes it is work, but like most things in life, it doesn’t come easily.

 

Here are tips to stay healthy

 

Join an indoor sport league

If you don’t live in Los Angeles or San Diego where the sun shines 24/7 make sure to find ways to stay active. A great way to stay in shape and socialize is team sports. Join a local indoor sports league! Adult sports league have levels from beginner to advanced.

 

Go for a walk or run

You’ll most likely be traveling for the holidays and your workout routine will be disrupted. Don’t let this stop you from working out. Get that run in early or plan to walk with friends and family.

 

Portion Control

I know it’s hard not to go for that second or third helping but follow this simple rule. Once your full stop eating! You can always take home leftovers!

 

Relax

I know this may seem counter-intuitive, but make sure to relax while you’re on holiday too. Take this time away from work and have a breather. The goal in life should be a healthy balance between work and life.

 

Take your vitamins

It’s common for people to get really sick during the winter. Make sure you are taking your vitamins and eating a balanced diet.
