7 Holiday Wellness Tips

Tip #1: Prepare a budget and stick to it.

Tip #2: Move your body every day.

Take walks, dance to a song, keep up with your classes, do some stretches in front of the TV, etc. With the extra food that gets eaten, it’s essential to keep your body moving.

You already know this. This year try making it a non-negotiable each day.

“Your body will be around a lot longer than that expensive handbag. Invest in yourself.”

Tip #3: Accept compliments.

People tend to be in a good mood when they are out and about during the holiday season and may be handing out compliments. Accept them with gratitude. Accept the positive energy connection and maybe give some back. Treat them as little gifts.

“When we accept compliments, we are reminded that others see us through different eyes.” DailyOM

Tip #4: Talk to someone if you are lonely.

Everyone feels pressured to be busy during the holiday season, so we tend to isolate ourselves. Try to maintain connections regularly. Be careful about comparisons and guilt during this season. Find joy in others’ company to avoid feeling lonely.

On the other hand, if you know someone alone, reach out to them. When we say, “We are all in this together,” it means we all have to take care of each other.
