We are well into the holiday season and the chaos of holiday traffic, shopping and crowds is only getting worse. That’s enough to make anyone stressed… A Healthline survey found 62 percent of people describing their stress level as “very” or “somewhat” elevated during the holiday season.
Fortunately, we have some helpful tips to get you through this hectic period with ease.
To help you have a more enjoyable holiday season, here are 7 ways to stay healthy and happy through the festivities…
Make Time for Yourself The holidays can get chaotic and overwhelming, but don’t let it bring you down. Remember to take a break and spend some time catering to yourself, whether that means practicing some meditation or a mini pamper session.
Eat Mindfully ‘Tis the season for holiday parties and indulging in comfort foods. Leave the stuffing to the turkey and refrain from overeating. Try taking smaller portions or sampling a little bit of each dish.
Pro tip: Take Amare’s Digestive with your meal to help support the digestive process.
Stay Active No matter how hectic your holidays may be, there’s always time for a little exercise. It has been clinically proven that 10-20 mins of exercise can increase your cognitive performance by 14%. Good for your body and brain!
Catch Some Extra ZZZ’s Sleep is a vital part of your well-being, especially during the holidays. Make it a priority to stick to a normal sleep routine.
Pro tip: Take Amare’s Sleep+ before bed to help you get a rejuvenating, restful night’s sleep.
Write a Gratitude List This time of year is all about reflecting on what we’re grateful for. Write down a couple things you’re thankful for and place it on your mirror or your bed side table, so you can refer back to it when you’re feeling stressed or overwhelmed.
Stay Hydrated Staying hydrated is essential for your body to function properly, including but not limited to boosting your skin health and energy levels.
Pro tip: Add Amare’s Energy+ to your water for some flavor and an extra boost of energy, without the jitters.
Fuel Your Body When you’re constantly on the go running holiday errands, you may forget to fuel your body with the nutrients it needs to perform throughout the day. Don’t let your health suffer this season! If you’re short on time, supplement your breakfast or lunch with a nutrient packed smoothie. Add a protein powder, like Amare GBX Protein to help you stay full and satisfied. You can also add some extra greens with Amare GBX SuperFood to provide you with a phytonutrient boost and anti-stress benefits.
