Swim Spa Repair Oregon Dealer Serving Portland Publishes “Three Quick Holiday Tips to Maintain Healthy Habits”.
Dec 23, 2015 /prREACH/ -- Jacuzzi Hot Tubs of Portland serving Beaverton and Tigard Oregon publishes “Three Quick Holiday Tips to Maintain Healthy Habits.”
“It’s tough to stick with healthy habits when everything around seems to be dedicated to extravagance and indulgence,” said Sue Rogers the company’s President. “That’s the way it is during the holidays when parties and elaborate meals rule the principle days, and the rest of the time between is full of rushed shopping, travel and planning that ends up with most people falling into bed exhausted, usually having filled up on junk food during the day, and forgetting all about planned exercise schedules.”
“At first, most people try hard to maintain their healthy habits, but five weeks full of stress, fun and complete submersion into extravagance can take its toll and show up on the scale,” continued Rogers. Here are three quick tips to help maintain healthy habits and avoid gaining weight during the holidays.
Drink Lots of Water – Drinking at least eight cups of water per day, and extra glasses before heading out to parties can help keep people from overindulging on rich, high-calorie foods. Water also prompts the metabolism into operating more efficiently, so any big meals are digested faster and better.
While any water: warm, lukewarm, tap or cold is beneficial, cold water is actually the best choice before meals as it increases metabolism even more, and helps burn calories. When alcohol is a part of the festivities, drinking water can also help reduce the effects on the morning after.
Eat Healthy Snacks before Parties – Whenever possible, host the parties so that meals are easily planned around healthy choices. When it isn’t possible to control the food served, have everyone in the family eat good, healthy snacks just before heading out. Eat a substantial serving of bulky greens that are high in fiber to fill up, and help everyone avoid the temptation of over eating at the meal.
Have a strategy in place that everyone can follow to make it easier to focus on other aspects of the party instead of food. When eating, chew slowly and pay attention to conversations. Walk around the room in a large gathering and stay away from the food tables. Enjoy the company and activities going on, and instead of carrying a plate of food, carry a glass of water and take small sips to stay full.
Enjoy Daily Stress Relieving Hot Tub Sessions – Stress is a serious problem and during the holidays it is often elevated to dangerous levels. It is hard to recognize the levels of stress as they increase, because signs of stress, anxiety and tension are fairly common in daily life, and many times people shrug them off, but stress can lead to heart disease, stroke and even make it harder to keep weight off.
Having a Beaverton hot tub available all of the time in the yard or on a patio or porch is a great way to relieve stress, especially during the holidays. A Mayo Clinic study revealed that soaking in a hot tub lowers blood pressure and reduces stress. Hydrotherapy has long been the favorite method for getting rid of aches and pains from over working muscles and daily tension, and adding one to the home is simple and can be done quickly.
