Tips to Keep Health During the Holidays
The holidays can bring a lot of stress, joy and happiness and even overwhelm and sadness. Here are some things you can do to stay mentally and physically healthy.
Eat breakfast, lunch and dinner- by not skipping meals we are sufficiently fueling our bodies. Focus on healthy fats (avocado, nuts and seeds, coconut and olive oil), lean proteins and lots of vegetables. Optimally vegetables should be 80% of every meal.
Drink at least 100oz of purified water per day- Pitch any plastic water bottles and switch to steel or glass and filter your water at home. Berkey is my favorite water filter.
Take your vitamins- When we get busy they are easy to forget but very important. If you are interested in a vitamin protocol tailored just for you the ilumina office can schedule you an appointment.
Get your sleep- A good nights sleep is essential to mental clarity and physical health. If you are having difficulties let us know and we can work on it.
Meditate daily- Take 5,10,20,30 minutes and be still. Calm your mind and settle your Qi. For meditation instructions
