Post-Holiday, Wellness tips- that are easy to do!

Start the New Year on the right foot. Here are some tips to do just that.

Hydrate! Simply by drinking water you help flush out toxins that may have settled in your body. Drinking water also helps with bloating. Sometimes when people feel hungry they are actually just thirsty and drinking allows you to skip snacking. Add watermelon, cucumber, citrus or mint for added detoxifying benefits and a kick of flavor.

Get your sweat on! In addition to drinking more water sweating also helps the detoxifying process. When you sweat your body releases toxins such as salt, alcohol and cholesterol. And sweating increases pumping endorphins through your body- keeping you happier and those holiday warm & fuzzies alive a little longer.

Eat a little healthier at each meal. Add spinach to your sandwich at lunch, skip the cheese on your burger for dinner, use ½ a teaspoon less sugar in your coffee, etc. All of these small things make an impact when added up, and are hardly missed so you may able to stick with this program longer than a crash diet.

Sleep. Not only does sleep feel amazing and help you relax, recover, and make you more alert & energetic but adequate sleep also helps regulate your hunger hormones making it easier to pick better dietary choices.

Meditate Doesn't need to be while chanting Ohms, but take 5 minutes every day to breathe, clear your mind of stress and focus on positive things.

Avoid Caffeine 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!

Pamper yourself The holidays can be very stressful. Now that you are done taking care of everyone else, It's time to take care of yourself. Mix up your everyday routine and treat yourself to something you enjoy and 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 just relax with a great book.
