Healthy Holiday Habits
3 Healthy Holiday Habits With Amida Wealth
The holidays are a busy time of year, packed with festive meals, family commitments, and additional fun activities. This extra hustle and bustle can make it difficult to maintain your fitness and lifestyle goals—but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Repetitive behaviors done consistently are easier to maintain than ones you do sporadically. Here are some tips to help you maintain a conscious and positive healthy lifestyle this upcoming holiday season!
Communicate Your Commitments
First, talking to your friends and family members about your commitments will hold you accountable with your healthy choices. Do you want to exercise everyday? Make healthier choices at dinner? Perhaps drink less alcohol or none at all? Remember that your health is personal and how you choose to eat and move your body is no one’s business but your own. Preparing your friends and family ahead of time helps them be more supportive. They may even offer to join you! In other words, do not be afraid to ask for their encouragement and assistance.
De-Stress Over The Holidays
Taking some time to relax and wind down is perfectly acceptable during the holidays. The holidays can be stressful. Taking time for yourself is not a selfish act. Self-care will help you treat others and yourself better. Try going for a walk, exercising, meditating, taking a warm bath, or spending a day at the beach. Don’t feel guilty about taking time for yourself. In other words, letting others know that you need some time for yourself is perfectly reasonable!
Get Proper Sleep
Both REM sleep and deep sleep have unique restorative qualities for your overall health and happiness. REM sleep plays an important role in emotional health and resilience, while deep sleep helps restore your body, so you can wake up with the energy you need to take on this holiday season. Aim for seven to nine hours total!
