Post Holiday Wellness tips - that are easy!
Post-Holiday, Wellness tips- that are easy to do!
Start the New Year on the right foot. Â Here are my personal tips to do just that- easily!
Hydrate â€“ Simply by drinking water you Â help flush out toxins Â that may have settled in your body. Drinking water also helps with bloating. Sometimes Â when people feel hungry they are actually justÂ thirsty and drinking allows you to skip snacking.Â Add watermelon, cucumber, citrus or mint for added detoxifying benefits and a kick of flavor.
Get your sweat on â€“ In addition to drinking more water sweating also helps Â the detoxifying process. When you sweat your body releases toxins such as salt, alcohol and cholesterol.Â And sweating Â increases Â pumping endorphins through your bodyÂ keeping you happier and Â those holiday â€˜ warm & fuzziesâ€™Â alive a little longer.
Eat a little healthier at each meal â€“ Add spinach to your sandwich at lunch, skip the cheese on your burger for dinner, use Â½ a teaspoon less Â sugar in your coffee, etc. All of these small things make an impact when added up,Â and are hardly missed so you mayÂ able to stick with thisÂ program Â longer than a crash diet.
Sleep â€“ Not only does sleep feel amazing and help you relax, recover, and make you more alert & energetic but adequate sleep Â also helps regulate your hunger hormones making it easier to pick better dietary Â choices.
Meditate â€“ Doesnâ€™t need to be while chanting Ohms, but take 5 minutes every day to breathe, clear your mind of Â stress and focus on positive things.
Avoid Caffeine â€“ If you are anything like me you may have over indulged over the holidays and your body needs the break, even if just for a little bit. This includes caffeine from teas and chocolate; heart breaking, I know.
Pamper yourself â€“ The holidays can be very stressful. Now that you are done taking care of everyone Â else,Â itâ€™s time to take care of yourself. Â Mix up Â your everyday routine and treat yourself to somethingÂ you enjoy and Â is good for you. Take a long soak in the tub, get a massage, take a yoga class, buy that new shade of lipstick or Â just relax with a great book.
