Salvere Blog: The Holidays Are Here Again

November 13, 2016

Oh, the holidays. So much gets wrapped up in these next two months starting with Halloween. First the candy from trick or treat leftovers then on to the Thanksgiving Holiday with the theme of eating and family.

From Turkey Day to New Years Eve — the end of the year parties, work parties, neighborhood parties, friend parties and family gatherings – time seems to be so filled and goes by so fast. So, what to do what to do with regard to healthy eating and moving your body (ie. Exercise!).
A few tips:
  1. Enjoy yourself and do it with pleasure.
  2. Stay consistent with your schedule as much as possible. Meaning, if something is not planned, do your thing — Keep exercising and keep eating healthy just like you do the rest of the year.
  3. Be the one to suggest a walk or something active to spend time with that friend or family member visiting from out of town. Go discover somewhere new or take them to your favorite park or city.
  4. Plan ahead and take time to relax
  5. Get plenty of sleep.

Salvere Blog: Thanks-Giving and the Holidays

December 1, 2015

by Salvere Health and Fitness

Last week, Thanksgiving started a typical month of tons of hustle and bustle – and family and friends and food and drinks and partying. FUN TIMES!! As you look to the month, all this can be stressful if you let it — It can also be a great opportunity to remember the things to be grateful for and take the chance for giving.

With all the parties, we indulge in foods we normally do not eat throughout the rest of the year and sometimes end up with a full calendar that impacts the exercise piece. Often we beat ourselves up over our decisions. Two things to think about:

  1. Go easy on yourself, enjoy this time of year and spend some time relaxing.
  2. Make a plan to incorporate healthy eating on those non holiday party days and include movement (like hiking, walking, dancing, etc.) as part of your spending time together.
