Are you getting enough zzz’s through the holiday season?
Your health and emotional well-being are your most important personal assets. Maintaining healthy sleep habits, no matter the season, can help you feel refreshed and recharged so you can truly enjoy precious times with the people you care about. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
• Try and stick to your regular sleep routine every day
• If you have an evening holiday party to attend and you plan on staying up late, try to keep your wake up time the same, even if you feel tired the next day
• Also, avoid eating at least 2 hours before bedtime. If you feel like you need something, try a glass of water or milk, rather than eating more holiday treats
• If you’ve been out and have a hard time winding down, try a relaxation technique like deep breathing, tensing and releasing your muscles or listening to relaxing music
Enjoy the holiday season – stay active and eat healthy EVERY DAY!
