Good Tidings We Bring: Health & Wellness During the Holidays
AURORA, Colo. - Dec. 23, 2022 - PRLog -- The holidays can be the best time of the year but also the most stressful. However you spend the winter months, there's no doubt it can be overwhelming. Maintaining mental and physical health is especially vital this time of year. So, here are a few suggestions and tips to help you maintain balance as you prepare for the holidays and the new year!
Tip 1: Self-control with Food
Stress eating is every day for many and can lead to various problems like eating disorders. While struggling with eating disorders is common, it is a constant battle for those dealing with it. So, to keep your physical health, consider the food you eat and how you may turn to food when coping with stress. Refrain from hindering yourself from enjoying the plethora of sweets and great food you may encounter! Just think about the contents and your body so you are not creating complications in the long run. Enjoy life & everything in moderation.
Tip 2: Know Your Limits with Alcohol
While it is okay to consume alcohol (21+), it is vital to know your limits. Most parties wouldn't be a party if there were no cocktails involved! Drinking and driving are not okay and are a leading factor in deaths in the United States. To avoid such a loss, don't drink if you plan on driving. Additionally, know your limits and avoid overdrinking, as it can have long-term effects like liver complications. Be smart & think before you act when you drink.
Tip 3: Get Quality Sleep
With busy schedules, it may take much work to get 8+ hours of sleep suggested by many. Today, many people run on caffeine and power naps. However, this creates mental and physical exhaustion we are not designed to live off of. So, to avoid burnout, find time to rest. Find rest when rest is due. While getting 8 hours of sleep may only be feasible for some, find ways to relax and unwind. If you have trouble sleeping, try mindfulness practices that help you assess your mind and body while living in the present. Seek medical attention if insomnia or other sleep complications occur.
