This week I wanted to write to you with some tips for events/parties in the new year.
Many of us still have holiday events around this time of year and it is a time when even the best
intentioned can find herself going astray.
Here are my suggestions:
1)Eat before the event.
If you aren’t directly involved in the planning of the food/ very confident that there will be healthy choices
available do NOT attend an event hungry.
Aim to eat some protein and veggies– even a small snack- before you attend.
2) Go into the event hydrated.
When you get there, if the host offers you an alcoholic beverage ask for a water along side of it.
Aim to maintain at least two waters-ideally three- for every drink.
Don’t drink alcohol? GOOD FOR YOU!!
Be mindful of the sugary alternatives and aim to stick to carbonated water or good ‘ole H2O.
3)Catch up on your sleep.
We are meant to be getting rest and downtime over the holidays but most of us
up the ant on everything and cram months of socializing into just a few weeks.
Listen to your bodies folks.
If you are up late, you will need to nap or sleep in.
While it is best to maintain a solid sleep/wake schedule around this time of the year
you’ll probably need to nap.
4)Schedule a little time alone.
Hey you introverts (and everyone really) the holidays bring a lot of people together
which is GREAT. BUT, for those of us who are introverts it is a Lot.
Even for those of us who are extroverts it is a lot. We still need a little alone time.
Make sure to take it so that when you are around your people you’ll be your best self 🙂
5)Remember your vitamins.
More people => more exposure to germs, flu and colds.
and your Multi Vitamin/ Multi Mineral are your friend right now.
6)Move your body
Go for an ice skate
a cross country ski
a home workout
or come to Boot Camp.
Hopefully this holiday season some of your events can include physical activity.
Current clients, we would love to host your out of town guests. Please remember the shoe
rule and that we need your people to sign a waiver. Otherwise they are welcome as our guest.
