5 Tips for Your Healthiest Holiday Ever

5 Tips for Your Healthiest Holiday Ever

  1. Be prepared. Going to a potluck and the host is providing Turkey? We’d take deviled eggs made with Primal Kitchen mayo and a green salad and we’ve got a meal! Or throw together your own charcuterie board with clean meats like organic turkey and salami from Whole Foods, deviled eggs, pickles, veggies and hummus and fruit for a meal in itself.

  2. Keep exercising. Have you had a workout routine going this year? Don’t quit! Maybe your nutrition isn’t what it should be and maybe you won’t be losing weight, but the mood-lifting benefits of exercise alone are enough to make this a priority during the holiday season. Enlist a friend to hold you accountable to getting to the gym at least 3 times a week and take a power walk another day or two. If nothing else, do just the walking.

  3. Manage stress. This is easier said than done any time of year, but especially during the holidays. Try the Walking Meditations app and get your exercise and meditation done together. Also, consider taking Ashwagandha 500mg daily to help manage cortisol levels and help you feel more at ease.

  4. Sleep. This may give you the biggest bang for your buck. Getting in bed before 10 gives you more quality sleep and helps with cortisol balance. This will not only help you feel better, but might also prevent some of those unwanted pounds.

  5. Strengthen your immune system. Getting a cold or sinus infection definitely puts a damper on the holidays. All the above suggestions will help build a strong immune system. But make sure you are also getting adequate vitamin D, vitamin C, and zinc and consider taking Echinacea and Silver hydrosol. Our Immune Enhance IV is great for an immune boost, as well!
