Unhealthy Habits to Avoid Around the Holidays
Unhealthy Habit # 1Snacking when you are bored
Who’s guilty of snacking in between arriving at your holiday destination all the way until dinner is ready? The holidays are such a fun time of year, but you don’t have to let your diet slip away. If you are going to snack then try going for the veggie or fruit tray versus the holiday sweets.
Unhealthy Habit # 2Not sleeping enough
If you are hosting Christmas or a New Year’s party at your home, chances are you have been running around busy preparing for your holiday party. Don’t forget to sleep! You still need 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night, even around the holidays.
Unhealthy Habit # 3Overindulging on your holiday meal
Holiday meals can be really be delicious but don’t overdo it. Save your leftovers and eat them the next day versus trying to eat everything in one sitting. No one wants a stomach ache the day after Christmas.
Unhealthy Habit # 4Forgetting to sanitize
Everyone is likely gathering together for the holidays, everyone from the newborns to the elderly. More people bring more germs, so don’t forget to sanitize. Sanitize your hands before and after eating. Always wash your hands after using the restroom. With all of the excitement around the holidays, you are likely rushing around and you could easily forget to wash or sanitize your hands. It only takes a few minutes, so make the time to sanitize.
