The Holidays Are Hard on Your Health: 7 Tips to Avoid Sabotaging Your Health During the Holidays

The holidays are associated with a lot of things, but good health isn’t usually one of them. Typically, this season is full of all the things we work so hard to prevent during the rest of the year. Overindulgent eating, excessive drinking, sleep deprivation, heightened anxiety and over-planning are a cocktail for disaster that many people drink straight into the new year. Here are seven tips to clean up your act this holiday season while still having all the fun:

  • Go to bed. Sleep at least eight hours to recharge for the next day.
  • Say no. Focus on the traditions and the people you care about most.

The holidays don’t have to sabotage your good health. Make these simple adjustments and start off the new year a healthier you! Visit WeChooseNPs.org to learn more.
