Bouncing Back After A Bounty Of Holiday Feasts!

From mashed potato and gravy overload to all the homemade pies and cookies, there are so many pitfalls on our plates during the holidays.

Now that we've arrived in the new year, we can officially put that behind us and begin focusing on our new goals for 2020!

Here are a few of my favorite ways to bounce back after the holidays:

1. Reset your digestive system

When you wake up in the morning, have a cup of hot water with lemon. It helps restore your ph levels and speeds up the process of "detoxifying" your body.

2. Water, water, and more water

Whether you overindulged in dinner, dessert, drinks, or even all three, water helps recharge your body. It restores your energy levels to every cell and further cleanses the body from toxins.

3. Keep it simple

Keep the foods you eat simple and healthy. Make a homemade soup filled with dark, leafy green vegetables, onions, and garlic, or try out a green smoothie. The focus here should be simple, nutritious, whole foods. Soups are ideal for this because they also can be hearty and soothing, something you tend to feel drawn to during this time of year.

4. Move it

Take a walk, do some yoga, or engage in any physical activity you enjoy so long as you are moving. You'll feel so much better inside and out. Plus, there are benefits to sweating it out. It helps push the toxins out of your body, leaving you feeling much more refreshed. If you can, try the sauna or steam room at your gym following your workout, and you'll feel amazing.

5. Plan for next time

Consider what caused you to overdo it last time. Did you just not fill your plate with green veggies and healthier options? Whatever it was, think about how to prevent that from happening for the next time. By being prepared for your triggers, you can avoid feeling like you've fallen off track next time.

There are always ways to better your eating habits so make a plan that helps you focus, but allow for flexibility.
