How to Keep Your Holidays Healthy

Here are some tips on maintaining your health during the holiday season:

  • Don't do too much. Give yourself some time to relax.

  • Share the workload. Let everyone play an active role; make the holidays a family affair so you're not burdened with all the work.

  • Establish priorities. If you can't do everything, say no to some demands on your time.

  • Simplify your life. Be less elaborate this year. Relax your housekeeping and holiday preparations.

  • Continue to exercise. Don't let your regular regimen lapse.

  • Eat healthy foods and limit your consumption of high-fat holiday treats. Serve healthy fare at your family's holiday party.
