By Virginia Laird
The holiday season is generally the time of year many would prefer to put their health on the back-burner and choose to consume any and all holiday delights. Health and wellness experts suggest that while this may be tempting, there are plenty of reasons to continue improving your health throughout this time of year. For starters, it can be difficult to get back on track after letting go. Another reason to stay on the path of improving your health is that, no matter what, your health should always be a priority. Fortunately, experts have suggested a few simple things you can do throughout this exciting time of year to help improve your health, without avoiding some of the treats you so look forward to. These tips include:
- Head to the gym regularly
- Follow a healthy diet
- Skip the sugar
Head to the Gym Regularly
Making time to get a workout is imperative when trying to improve your health. Although many may choose to walk through the neighborhood, there are benefits to making a trip to the gym. If you are like me, as the weather begins to get cooler, I tend to find excuses to stay indoors. Times like this, heading to the gym can remove these excuses. While at your local gym, check the fitness class schedule. These can be fun and the instructors can offer a push when you need it most. Drop by your local gym today to get started on the fun.
Follow a Healthy Diet
For many, following a healthy diet can be easier said than done. With the holiday season in full swing, choosing to avoid some of the tasty treats can prove to be quite the battle. Rather than making this an issue, it is best to get in the habit of choosing healthy food. Health and wellness experts advise that your diet should include lots of veggies and fruit, as well as a variety of lean protein. This is generally limited to chicken and fish. If you are one who enjoys red meat, it is suggested that you do so limitedly, as it is fattier than the other choices.
Skip the Sugar
Health and wellness experts advise that those who are serious about improving their health will skip out on the sugar. This can be a hard pill to swallow, especially with the holidays staring at you. However, it is a great way to jump-start progress in weight and health improvements. If you are not quite ready to give sugar the boot, it is recommended that you limit your consumption of sugar. For some, this can be just one serving of one treat each week.
No matter what you decide to do to improve your health, now is the time to get started. Good luck!
