It's time to think Christmas Strategy.

Unfortunately during this time of the year because of time constraints, people being busy, financial stress, parties, bad foods, more booze etc..  it more often than not is one of the most stressful times of the year. More people get sick during Christmas and January than any other time in the year. 

Here are my 7 AWESOME Steps to Christmas Success

1. Pro-Actively Pre-Eat: Before you go to Christmas functions, dinners and parties and indulge in foods you don't normally eat (SUGAR), eat a few hours before something nutritious before you go. This will decrease the tendency for you to want to eat more food and ensure you are getting proper nutrition. 

2. Stay Continually Hydrated: People often think they are hungry when in fact they are dehydrated. Especially in kids. Staying hydrated is not only good for you it will ensure your appetite stays in control. 

3. Don't skip on your workout. Your workout is as much as a mind set thing as it is a physical thing. Exercise breaks stress, oxygenates your cells and this gives life to your tissues. If you skip your workout you often tend to skip-out on other things too. Stick to it and be committed, consistency is key.

4. Steer Clear of the Sugar. Sugar is proven to reduce the function of your nervous system which reduces your immune system. Sugar feeds disease cells. Bacterial and Cancer cells LOVE sugar.

5. Don't hang out near the bad stuff. Out of sight, out of mind. Don't park yourself beside the bar or beside the sweets table. 

6. Rest Up. We typically get this wrong and do it backwards. When we are the most busy, we need the most rest. Take a small 15-20 min nap if you need to. Deadlines, late nights, parties, extra work all add up to less rest. 

7. Take the time to be Merry and Joyful. This is so so so important. This is one of the relationships time of the year. Do not let stress and being caught up in pointless things rob you of joy. Surround yourself with loved ones and celebrate life. 

When we need Health the most, we often bail on it the most. These strategies will keep you pointed in the right direction so that you can live the life you were Designed to live. 

From all of us at the healthy family to you and your family, we love being part of your lives and on your journey towards true health. Have a wonderful Merry Christmas and a happy new year. God bless,
