Make a routine and stick to it.

A routine is the key to success when it comes to health goals. I personally live and die by a scheduled routine. Take some time to write yourself a daily routine to better schedule your time. This will help you stick to healthy habits. If you schedule in time in your routine everyday for a workout you’re more likely to do it.

Healthy Replacements.

This time of year is filled with cookies, hot cocoa, and chocolate. Instead of over indulging in all of these treats, replace them! Instead of putting out a tray of cookies this year at your holiday party, put out a tray of veggies.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Staying hydrated is so important, especially when your taking in salty or sugary foods. Water helps flush all that out of your system. Instead of eggnog, cocoa or soda, grab a glass of H2O. Make sure you are getting at least eight 8 oz glasses a day!

Be Prepared

If you know you are going to be at a party or event filled with treats galore, eat something healthy before you leave or pack something healthy to bring with you. You are less likely to go overboard at your event if you are prepared.

Be realistic

This time of year is about celebrating with the ones we love.  it’s okay to enjoy a treat or two without feeling guilty if you are keeping up with healthy habits. Having a Christmas cookie can prevent a binge later on. Health is all about moderation.
