7 Healthy Holiday Tips

The holidays are here and it’s time to see the people you love and care about as well as celebrate all that you’ve accomplished this year. Staying active through the holidays will

  • increase your energy levels
  • strengthen your immune system putting you at less risk of getting sick
  • give you a boost of endorphins so you feel less stressed and full of joy 

and much more. Here are 7 Tips to keep you on track this holiday season.

1. Make the choice to see the positive in every situation this holiday. Don’t stress over the small stuff. If you look for the bad you will have a bad experience. If you look for the good you will have a good experience. The choice is yours!

2. Hydrate! Drink plenty of water before your meal. We tend to eat larger portion sizes when dehydrated.

3. If you’re going out for drinks, order water or iced tea for the first round. By the time you finish, your friends may have already finished two or three cocktails, while you’ve saved yourself 500 to 600 calories. And sometimes you’ll be so into the entertainment of everyone else, you might not even want a drink by then!

4. Make it a family affair. Get active with your family members by doing a fun workout together like Cardio Kickboxing or a fun activity like ice skating or even just a walk around the neighborhood. 

5. Eat your veggies first. Don’t dive right into carbs! Start with a green salad followed by protein, and then go for another vegetable. Save a treat-size portion of carbohydrates for last. When you have stuffing or mac ‘n’ cheese, have a half cup or full cup — no more.

6. Offer healthy spins on holiday favorites. When it comes to sweet potatoes, people always want to add marshmallows and brown sugar. Enjoy some fresh sweet potatoes, and don’t add anything. Instead of a broccoli cheese casserole, opt for broccoli with shaved almonds flavored with chicken broth.

7. If it’s too cold outside, find an online exercise program to do at home. There’s so much fitness instruction available on social media and the Internet. Use it to your advantage. I created an online club, The Hollywood Trainer Club, where I have 330 workouts and challenges! I even do the workouts myself in a small space — either an office or a hotel room if I’m traveling. Not only do at-home workouts let you avoid the cold, but you save time by not having to commute to the gym. Best of all, there’s no worrying about your outfit when you’re working up a sweat in the living room!
