During the holiday season, many of us put aside healthy habits in favor of rich traditional meals and sweet treats. This year, take a stand against overindulgence and stay focused on what your body needs most. Avoid overeating at parties by keeping yourself satiated all day long. Start by eating a proper breakfast, complete with plenty of water to stay hydrated. Then, right before the party, snack on fresh veggies and dip so you’re less likely to binge on sweets or calorie-laden cocktails. Don’t deprive yourself entirely, however: The holidays aren’t the same without a few of mom’s famous snowball cookies!
Part of staying healthy during the busy holiday season means keeping up with regular exercise. One way to stay motivated is by moving your workouts to the beginning of the day so you’re free to focus on last-minute gift shopping or food prep. Also, if you plan to travel this season and are worried about the trip cutting into your exercise routine, try non-conventional means of staying active, like taking the stairs or staying in hotels with gyms.
