Get Your Sleep On
We all know when you’ve had a bad night’s sleep or lack thereof, the next day is thrown for a loop. A restful sleep is so important for your health not only for energy, but productivity and focus. You’re a better version of yourself rested!
Schedule Time Off
Holidays mean running around to parties, work events, community fundraisers, and family gatherings. Make sure to schedule some time off for yourself to recover from the social events and prevent burnout. Also, communicate boundaries for when you are leaving a function (and stick to them). Surround yourself with positive people and say no to unnecessary obligations.
Keep Drinking Water
With the cold weather, sometimes we forget that hydrating is even more important to keep up with. Don’t forget to keep up your water intake to half your body weight in ounces per day. For example, someone who weighs 180 pounds approximately would need to have 90 ounces of water per day.
Listen To Your Body
- When your muscles feel tight, stretch! Each stretch should be 30 seconds or longer to get the benefits.
- When you feel sore or hurt, rest! Resting allows your muscles to build themselves back together again.
- When you are hungry, feed your body! Eating balanced meals is important for your overall health. Don’t worry over treats, enjoy them! Just keep in mind how your body is feeling.
Comment one way you’ll prioritize rest/recovery this holiday season!
