Staying in Shape and Active During the Holiday Season

Ready or not, the holidays are here. With all the feasting and shopping and party-going and year-end budgeting, it can be tough to keep up a regular exercise routine.


Enjoy the glorious holiday without sabotaging your health.

Be a smart cookie by following these simple steps to stay healthy during the holiday season:


Eat Mindfully

When you're eating, sit back and allow yourself to truly enjoy your favorite holiday flavors. Pay attention to the taste, aroma and texture of the foods. When the attention shifts from your body, redirect it back to your internal fullness and satisfaction cues. 


Stay Hydrated

Water accounts for 60% of our body’s total weight and we need to stay hydrated in order to maintain this ratio. Water is also necessary for several bodily functions, including maintaining our cell’s fluids and delivering nutrients.


Choose Healthy Substitutes

With a few simple diet tweaks, you can indulge in your favorite holiday foods without packing serious pounds. For instance, replace sour cream with greek yogurt in your favorite holiday recipes. Trade mashed potato with mashed sweet potato. And swap heavy dips like blue cheese dip and spinach and artichoke dip with these healthy bean-based dips and homemade hummus.


Boost Your Immune System

Eating a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables is one of the best things you can do to bolster your immune system. 


Make Time For Self-are 

Don't let the holiday madness take a toll on your mental and emotional health. Whether you're caught up in cooking, holiday shopping or socializing, don't put your needs on the back burner. Take some time off to relax and unwind go for a walk, meditate, watch your favorite movie or read a good book, do at least one thing every day that makes you truly happy.


Change Your Mindset

Try to reframe the 'now or never' nature of the holidays. "Make a deal with yourself that if you want stuffing, ham or pecan pie another time, you can have it. When you de-mystify holiday food and recognize you can eat it any time, you’re in better control of your food choices.
