How to Ensure You Remain Healthy Heading Into The New Year

The holidays are notoriously a time for indulging in delicious food and drinks and taking a break from reality.

Drink Plenty of Water

Water is essential for our health and should be consumed every day, as it helps carry nutrients and oxygen to your cells, aids in digestion, helps with weight loss, and so much more. The holidays are a time where we might drink more alcohol than usual, which can dehydrate us. Make sure to drink plenty of water in order to stay healthy and hydrated for the new year!

Manage Stress

The holidays are a time of happiness and merriment. However, the stress that comes from dealing with family, travel arrangements, shopping, cooking, and everything else associated with this time of year can be overwhelming. In order to remain healthy, we recommend finding ways to manage your stress. Whether that’s journaling, taking a bath, going for a walk, or anything in between, be sure to make it a priority!

Find a Balance When It Comes to Food

There’s no doubt that everyone should enjoy delicious food and drinks during the holidays. That being said, we recommend doing your best to find a balance. Instead of over-indulging and only eating junk food or food that’s high in calories, try to incorporate healthier items, such as fruits and vegetables, into your diet as well. That way, you’ll not only feel better, but you’ll also be able to enjoy those delicious dishes without guilt!

Keep Up With Your Workout Routine

Working out during the holiday season can be extremely challenging. It’s colder outside, it gets darker earlier, and it can be tempting to stay inside with family rather than venture out into the world. However, in order to remain healthy this holiday season, our team at The Union recommends making your workout routine a priority. We offer a wide range of fitness classes to help you stay on top of your health, from yoga to HIIT classes!
