Holiday Health


The holiday season is in progress, which can mean our healthy routines we worked so hard for during the fall may be taking a hit this winter.  What healthy habits can you bring into your daily routine as we end 2011 and begin a new year?  Looking for ideas?

  • Train for a 5k (bring a friend for extra ways to commit and someone to chat with).
  • Join the Meatless Mondays campaign.
  • Get into a sleep routine; try going to sleep and waking up at the same times each day.
  • Check out a fun new fitness class in your area. You could see if they offer a free trial, or use a Groupon or Living Social type deal.
  • Eat seasonally fresh fruits and veggies.  It's tasty and less costly for your wallet.
How will YOU finish 2011 on a healthy note?
