Hot Tubs, Sauna Dealer in Iowa Shares “Three Healthy Living Tips for the Holidays”. Offers Free Portable Spa Test Soaks to Local Residents.

Hot Spring Spas of Des Moines, a hot tub dealer selling new and used hot tubs, portable spas, swim spas and saunas publishes “Three Healthy Living Tips for the Holidays.”

“Holidays are fun and it is a time of the year for family gatherings and big party blow-outs with friends,” said Connie Peterson, General Manager Hot Spring Spas of Des Moines. “However, between the office parties, the family dinners, the gift shopping and the late, late New Year’s Eve bashes, a healthy lifestyle can take a real beating.”

“It wouldn’t be as hard on people’s health if the season were only a few days long, but the typical holiday festivities usually last for weeks without a break. The food, the stress and the lack of exercise time can really take a toll fast, and even wipe away the hard work from the entire year,” continued Peterson.

Here are 3 healthy living tips to help people get through the holidays happier, safer and with their goals for a healthier lifestyle intact.

Enjoy Food without Gravy and Sauces – Almost every holiday meal is served with ladles full of gravy. Make sure to make your own dishes whenever possible and avoid spooning on gravies in large amounts. If it is just too good to pass up, drizzle the gravy instead of pouring it on.

Sauces and jellied fruit like cranberry sauce is a common problem too. They are delicious, and lurk in an unsuspecting package. After all, cranberries are good for people’ except when they are mashed up into a jelly with a bunch of sugar and preservatives. Pass on the cranberry sauce and other sauces and enjoy the healthy choices that make up the bulk of the meal like turkey, vegetables and salads.

It is probably a good idea to avoid the desert tables too. While enjoying a bite or two of a delicious holiday desert isn’t likely to destroy an entire year of healthy living, make sure it doesn’t turn into eating constantly, or over-indulging. People who want to enjoy a little bit of the holiday goodies can get help by appointing a trusted friend or family member to keep an eye out on their indulgence and give them a little nudge if things are getting out of hand.

Stay Safe on the Road or in the Air – Holidays mean travel for millions of people. According to the Bureau of Transportation roughly 91 percent of Americans will travel using their own cars, and accident statistics go up accordingly.

Those statistics can be alarming, but there are things people can do to make holiday travel safer such as making sure the person driving is a designated driver who refrains from festive holiday drinks containing alcohol. Avoid driving when fatigued. When parties run long, or the day is so busy it is exhausting, make local arrangements to get a little sleep before hitting the road for a long journey home.

Make Time to Stay Relaxed – The stress can really build up during the holidays. Everything is so frantic and busy, and there never seems to be enough time to get things done. Add extended family dramas that can occur and stress levels get even more precarious.

Add time to the schedule to relax and de-stress. Soaking in a Des Moines hot tub is a great way to get rid of the tensions, relieve sore muscles from standing in lines, or just cooking meals all day. Make the holidays even more stress free by planning entire parties around the hot tub. It is a refreshing and unique way to spend time with family and friends that will make for a memorable holiday event.
