Holiday Break

Happy Holiday Break! I hope you guys enjoyed this semester and did well in all of your finals. I cannot believe we are finished! This semester flew by! 

The holiday season is a time of joy, giving, and spending time with loved ones but, unfortunately, it can also bring some stress. Many people get too caught up in the “hustle and bustle” of things and are stressed about getting all of the right gifts, balancing their time, and money can be a source of stress this time of year as well. Some people may even get stressed about gaining the dreaded “holiday weight.” Let’s all slow down a bit and really enjoy each moment of the season. Here are a few tips for making this holiday season a healthy one!

  1. Get plenty of sleep. Now is the perfect time to catch up on some sleep that we missed out on during the semester.
  2. Drink water. Aim for at least 10-13 cups of water each day. Try adding some fruit to flavor your water!
  3. Remember to eat your fruits and veggies. 
  4. Enjoy all of your favorite foods in moderation. Be mindful when you are eating and really enjoy each bite!
  5. Exercise. I have made a goal to exercise every day for 25 minutes for the 25 days leading up to Christmas. It is a great way to relieve stress and maintain balance. You can go for a walk with your friends/family and check out the Christmas lights, lift weights, go for a run or bike ride, hike, or maybe even go ice-skating!

Hope you guys have a wonderful, healthy break!! Talk to you next year.
