Mainely Tubs, a hot tub, sauna and swim spa dealer serving Maine and New Hampshire publishes “Three Tips for Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle During the Holidays.”

“It is challenging to maintain a healthy lifestyle during the holiday season. It is a long, five-week stretch that is filled with lots of high-calorie foods and so much activity that people tend to fall into a daze and give up on trying to keep track of what they are eating and doing,” says Jim Van Fleet, President of Mainely Tubs.

“During that one 5-week period, almost all if not the entire amount of the work people did for the previous 47 weeks can be swept away,” continued Van Fleet. “That is why it is so important to avoid lapsing during the holidays and do everything possible to maintain healthy lifestyle choices during the happy insanity that ensues during the festive period.”

Here are three tips for maintaining a healthy lifestyle during the holidays.

Pass on the Gravy, not the Exercise – One of the first things to suffer during the holiday season is exercise. Things move so quickly, and there is so much to do, that people start to make excuses for skipping exercise sessions early on. As most people who have begun an exercise regimen have likely seen, the first week or two can be difficult. They have to convince themselves to go to a class, set aside time to do a workout tape or even take daily walks.

Once a week or two is past, however, exercise begins to be something they “need” and love. They sing praises about the way they feel after even the toughest workout, and they wouldn’t dream of not going to the class, doing the workout routine at home or missing their walk.

It is because they have begun to feel the dopamine release that working out provides. Dopamine is the body’s natural feel good drug, it produces a feeling of euphoria. That feeling, and the way a few weeks of working out changes their physique in general, are very convincing for the psyche.

However, missing just a few of the normal workouts quickly erases the good feelings of dopamine, and the need to convince themselves to get moving again starts all over. It is harder and harder each time to convince the mind again that it is fun to exercise, especially when other factors like holiday weight gain and lethargy also exist. Make a point to leave plenty of time for regular workouts to keep the mind and body in great shape during the holidays.

Eat Good Food and Enjoy Time with Family – The focal point of the holidays should be time spent with family and friends. All of that time usually comes laden with trays of gravy covered foods and thick pies and cakes. Spend the time with friends and family enjoying their company, and keep an eye on the food consumed. Stay away from the baked goods and eat lots of protein and high-fiber foods, also plentiful during the festivities.

Increase Healthy Activities for the Family with a Scarborough Hot Tub – Having a hot tub in the yard creates a festive atmosphere that family and friends can use to relax, enjoy soothing conversations, have fun with music or even watch television on built in stereos or TVs. Once the day’s events are over, the hot tub is a great place to relax and get rid of the fatigue and aches and pains in sore muscles.

To help celebrate the holidays, Mainely Tubs will be providing free hot tub wet tests for the entire month. They do recommend however that people wanting to schedule their free 30-minute wet test call  ahead of time to reserve their spot.
