Ways to Keep Healthy During the Holiday Season

Once November rolls around, we all kind of begin to let loose where food and beverages are concerned. But why? To make our January harder? To increase our chances of contracting viruses and the flu by shattering our immune system? To follow the masses into the popular (but silly), unhealthy winter eating pattern?

Don’t do it!

By setting yourself up for a healthy November and December, you’ll automatically be ahead of the game by being fit when January rolls around, and everybody else is panicking at the gym. Win-win!

Here are a few ways to set yourself up for success through the holiday season, when it comes to health and happiness:

Create and Start an Exercise Plan NOW

Starting the first week of November, set a schedule for yourself to fit in exercise. Try and move your body for at least 30 minutes, 3 times per week. If you can do more, then great. If not, that’s alright. The consistency of this plan is more important than the length and even quality of your workout.

Just get off your butt, and move.

Keep an Eye on Your Alcohol Intake

Although tempted by eggnog in grocery stores and the general pass we receive to drink more booze in general, don’t do it. Reserve your alcohol consumption for parties—typically on weekends—and when you do drink, try and balance it out with equal amounts of water.

Try really hard not to binge!

Also. keep in mind that sugary drinks will contain more calories and almost guarantee hangovers. Try and stick to clear spirits and mix with water and/or club soda.

Make Smoothies with NutraCleanse™ for Breakfast

This is important, because you guarantee yourself a healthy start to each day. By incorporating our product into your fruit-heavy smoothie (full of antioxidants!), you also help keep your bowel clean and lose weight by doing this!

All that extra fiber from the NutraCleanse™ mix (mainly the flax seed) can also help to lower your blood sugar. It’s a win-win! For tasty smoothie recipes, click HERE.

More Water and Herbal Tea; Less Everything Else

It’s a great idea to try and stay as hydrated as possible throughout the holiday season. Why?

  • Water helps to balance out any dehydrating activities you many partake in. (Ahem.)
  • Water assists your body in staving off viruses by lubricating the inside of your nose, eyes, and throat.
  • Water aids in general weight loss.

So ditch the sodas and juices and stick to what you know your body really craves–water.

Eat Your Veg

Consuming tons of vegetables throughout the holiday season is imperative to assisting in fighting cold-and-flu season illnesses, they assist in weight loss, they provide antioxidants that help with cellular repair, and they lend energy for days that are dark and gloomy.

Essentially, vegetables are like therapy for your whole body, from the inside-out. For a great vegetarian recipe book suggestion, click HERE.

To help kick-start the holiday season in a healthy way, find NutraCleanse™ in a retail store near you, or order online at www.nutracleanse.biz.

Good luck, and Happy November!
