“We suggest that people make the most of the season by establishing a few healthy habits and create lasting memories that are not only good for the soul, but will keep everyone looking and feeling great for years to come,” continued Eppard. Here are a few suggestions.
Choosing Treats Wisely - For many folks, the holidays are all about the delicious sweet treats and delectable goodies that seem to appear everywhere. Whether it’s the office, a friend’s house, even the gym, there always seems to be a plate available with something tempting to eat. It’s easy to keep holiday sprawl at bay by making fitness a priority and limiting sweets to only those items that will truly be missed. A slice of pumpkin pie, a tiny sliver of rum cake or a sip or two of eggnog is not likely to pack on the pounds, but setting limits and being selective is the first step in learning to have your cake and eat it too.
Embracing Family Tradition - For some, it’s decorating the tree with holiday music and the smell of evergreen coloring the evening, for others, it’s as simple as a 15 minute neighborhood tour to look upon the lights and sparkly holiday decorations. Every family has something special they enjoy doing year-after-year to highlight the season and bring the festivities into full gear. Make it a habit to embrace traditions as an excellent way to stay connected and emotionally healthy in an otherwise hectic, chaotic setting.
Exploring Charitable Giving - Nothing says holiday cheer quite like giving to those in need. Collecting a few boxes of old clothes, discarded toys, even some new items to give to the Salvation Army or other charitable organization is a wonderful way to usher in the holidays. Sharing with those less fortunate brings happiness, nourishes the soul and is a wonderful habit to establish during the holiday season. As a family affair, charitable giving is the perfect way to build integrity, develop humility and bring joy to hundreds of well deserving families in need.
Relieving Stress and Tension with a Hot Tub - Unfortunately, stress often accompanies the holidays and is difficult to avoid with all the planning, shopping and cooking that comes with the season. Using a hot tub a few times a week is the perfect way to eliminate tension that builds in the neck and shoulders and relieve pain from overworked muscles and joints. Massaging jets work out the stress while warm, relaxing water soothes the body and mind. Using a hot tub in the evenings is a great way to promote sleep, giving the body the chance to more effectively repair and nourish for the fun that lies ahead.
“To help people understand how hydrotherapy can help improve overall health and well-being, we will provide free hot tub test soaks in our 5 locations during the entire month,” commented Eppard. “We want to encourage local consumers to check out the benefits of a relaxing soak in an energy efficient hot tub for themselves.”
