Make exercise your priority. Not only will it keep off those pounds but it’s great for clearing your mind of stress.

Take Your Vitamins – Our bodies get run down because of stress. Make sure you’re taking care of the basics by taking a multivitamin.

Portion Control – It’s OK to indulge a little bit but abide by the “three bite rule.” Pick your favorite things and take three bites of whatever you like when you’re at holiday parties.

Eat Healthy at Home – We can’t always control what is being served at holiday parties, but at home make sure your fridge is filled with fresh fruits and vegetables.

Hydrate – We often think we’re hungry when we’re actually thirsty. Remember to drink water often.

Find Balance – We tend to overbook ourselves during the holidays. Remember that it’s OK to say no. Take time for your family and friends – and time for yourself.
