And how about those holiday dinners!
Holiday dinners can be a marathon for the books. So in the spirit of the holidays and getting ahead of the problem, drink plenty of water throughout the day and establish healthy eating habits now. My family eats a pretty standard Mediterranean Diet. Mostly because it is in my blood, quite literally – we are of Italian descent so that’s what I grew up eating. I also believe that dieting should be easy- if you love a good hamburger, don’t go vegan. You can check out everything I do diet-wise HERE.

This is probably my favorite healthy habit:
Walking. I do my best thinking, when I get in a solid #nothoughtlegworkout , I can bring along my pup, and I can even include my whole family when I feel like it.
Adding a nice walk after dinner will ensure that your brain AND body are both tired, relaxed, and ready for tomorrow. And during the holidays, this could be key especially when dealing with those overbearing family members.
Think of this holiday season as a way to finish the year strong. Use these tips as solid holiday fitness help. Establish healthy habits both in your workspace and with family. Your body and brain will thank you.
