- While it’s important to take time to relax and enjoy the holiday season, it’s also important to incorporate healthy habits to feel the best version of yourself.
- Boost your immune system by washing your hands often, staying active, considering the flu shot, and prioritizing sleep.
- Keep your mental health strong by managing alcohol consumption, consciously indulging, managing stress, and maintaining a healthy routine.
While the holiday season is a time of year that many look forward to, it can also come with its stress. During this time of year, many people tend to fall out of their healthy routines and indulge, especially with the time off work and a long list of gatherings with friends and family. With the holidays around the corner, let’s take a look at some habits you should consider this holiday season to keep you feeling healthy and happy:
Wash Hands Often
The holidays are a common time for the spread of germs. It’s flu season, and with the increase in gatherings with friends and family, there is a higher potential for viruses to spread around. The best way to protect yourself during the holiday time is to wash your hands frequently.
The proper way to wash your hands is with soap and clean running water for at least 20 seconds, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
