10 SMART Tips to Stay Healthy During the Holidays
We know that it is increasingly hard to find time to take care of ourselves during this hectic Season. Remember these 10 easy, yet innovative, healthy tips to keep yourself calm, energized, and happy throughout the Holidays.
Healthy Holiday Tips
1.) Balance your plate
Make sure your plate is balanced with at least half leafy green veggies, one quarter lean protein and an optional quarter of legumes or whole grains.
2.) Keep it coming
Make sure to eat small, healthy portions throughout the day in order to prevent overeating at the end of the day.
3.) Have one protein or fiber drink before that big party
4.) Set your intention for the season
Be clear on your goals and boundaries and be mindful of where you are spending your time and energy.
5.) Make sure to engage in gentle movement therapy daily
Take at least twenty minutes to take care of yourself a day. Enjoy the crisp air on a power walk, do a couple yoga poses, or join your friends at your favorite work-out class!
6.) Be selective about your indulgences
No need to completely avoid that tasty looking holiday pie, but keep the portions limited to 3 small bites.
7.) Undo the damage with phytonutrients
Phytonutrients are nature’s most potent antioxidants that help your body heal and repair. Get your daily dose by tasting the rainbow of raw vegetables and fruits daily. Try our Cold Pressed Greens, the easiest way to get all your veggies in one shot!
8.) Hydrate your cocktail
If you must have that drink, load up your glass with ice cubes to dilute your holiday cheer and get more H20 while you’re at it.
9.) Schedule one act of self-care a week.
You are the only one who can take care of you. So get that massage, build up your fireplace, read a few chapters of a book, meditate or whatever it is you need to relax.
10. ) Make plans to cleanse after the holidays.
Let’s be real, we will all need a little reboot after the holiday season. Give yourself the ultimate holiday treat by joining the Guided Juice Cleanse that gets serious results. Let’s start this New Year on a healthy foot!
