Stay active year round!
After the excitement of the Holidays have passed and the winter days drag on many people dream of traveling to a warm beach location to escape the winter chill. Unfortunately, beach vacations carry a heavy price tag and most people cannot afford a getaway.
Many people suffer from SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder. I feel this myself around this time of the year. There are many different ways people cope with the winter blahs. Some healthy, some…not so much.
Making exercise a priority in the day really helps. Don’t feel like exercising? Just get moving anyway!
Start small- go for a walk around the block. Even 10 minutes of exercise has been proven to lift mood. Too cold to walk outside? Just march or jog in place while watching your favorite TV show! Find a workout partner to keep you motivated or start a friendly weight loss competition with friends! Find what works for you.
Healthy eating is a critical piece of the puzzle when it comes to mood stabilization and a healthy lifestyle. Limiting sugar intake while consuming more protein and fiber from healthy sources (such as lean meats, beans, legumes, vegetables, fruit, and low fat dairy) all keep your blood sugar levels even throughout the day and avoid the spike and crash of blood sugar levels that come from eating processed foods or foods with high sugar content.
