Spa-Warehouse, a premier hot tub, portable spa and swim spa dealer serving Santa Barbara and Ojai publishes “3 Easy Ways to Stay Healthy During the Holidays”.
“The long holiday season is a real danger zone when it comes to keeping a healthy lifestyle goal,” said Jim Vishnefske, president of Coastal Softub at Spa-Warehouse.com. “No matter how good people are during the first 10 months of the year, when November and December roll around, most of it goes out the window. It doesn’t have to be that way, however.”
Here are 3 easy ways to stay healthy during the holidays, and still enjoy the fun.
Consider Focal Points – Too often the focus is on the food during the holidays. It’s understandable, to a point. However, the real point of the holidays is to spend time with people, appreciate loved ones, and remember values and goals.
Whether it is Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years, keep the really important meanings of those days in mind instead of thinking about what to eat and where it will be available. Go to parties, or host parties that serve the foods expected, but place a real emphasis on things to do.
When going to holiday events, instead of gravitating to the food tables, look around for people of interest, gather with family, start conversations, get in on the action of the televised games. Make those things the big focus of the fun of the day instead of the food. In addition, always keep an accurate track of the foods consumed. It is really easy to go overboard when there are plates full of goodies everywhere.
Plan Ahead with Healthy Meals – When people are in a rush during the holidays, with all of the shopping, wrapping, traveling, partying and get-togethers, it is easy to fall into the fast food trap. Instead of making good, healthy foods when on the go, they grab a meal at the first outlet they see, or drop down on the couch after returning home and pop open a box of cookies.
Fight the pattern of holiday indulgence and make healthy meals ahead of time, pack them for the pantry, refrigerator or freezer as needed. Then they are on hand whenever there isn’t time to make a meal, or exhaustion requires a quick fix.
Create a Different Kind of Fun for the Family – Add a Santa Barbara hot tub to the yard or porch, and have an instant party focus that everyone will love. Because stress is at a high-point during the holidays, even when people are having fun and enjoying the activities, it is also important to have a way to relax and reduce tension levels.
Not only does a Santa Barbara hot tub bring family and friends together in a festive and healthy way, it will be there all year long to encourage healthy, stress free living. Studies like the ones at the Mayo Clinic by Thomas Allison, M.P.H., Ph.D., and the McKee Medical Center by Phillip Hooper, M.D., show that soaking in a hot tub lowers stress and can indeed help people lose weight.
