Dec 23, 2015 /prREACH/ -- Oregon Hot Tub, a hot tubs, swim spas and sauna dealer with showrooms in Portland, Beaverton, Bend, Wilsonville Oregon and Vancouver Washington shares ”Three Simple Ways to Survive the Holidays and Maintain Healthy Habits”.
“Between the out-of-town family visitors, traditions, big sports events and small intimate gatherings, there is hardly any time to breathe much less eat well and get regular exercise routines into the days during the holiday season,” said Sue Rogers, CEO of Oregon Hot Tub. “This time of the year is so fraught with healthy habit pitfalls there is even a term for the common weight gain that accompanies all of the food and stressful schedules: the Holiday Ten.”
“For some people, ten pounds gained during the holidays can destroy all of the efforts of the year until then,” continued Rogers. “It is important to enjoy the holidays to their fullest, while still making an effort to maintain healthy living choices to avoid the feeling of horror and failure that can occur as a result of the season. “ Here are three simple ways to survive the holidays and maintain healthy habits.
Keep Foods Simple – The holidays are well-known for elaborate recipes, often packed with calories, fat and cholesterol. There are plenty of delicious foods that can be used to create a delicious family meal without all of the holiday health hazards. Turkey is a common tradition at most holiday meals and it is a great choice for a main course as long as gravies, heavy stuffing and sauces are avoided.
Serve up simple green vegetables and salads as sides and make fruit desserts instead of pies and cakes. When it isn’t possible to control what food is being served at a party, make sure everyone in the family eats a good portion of healthy vegetables, meat and fruit before leaving so there is little room left for the holiday hazards.
Don’t Skip Meals – All of the shopping and errands that accompany the holidays cause people to lose track of their schedules. It’s tempting to skip breakfast or lunches during those times, but that is a problem that causes binging later in the day, a time when it is especially damaging to eat heavily. Make sure everyone in the family takes the time to eat a healthy breakfast and lunch every day.
Plan Time for Fun – Enjoy some time every day just relaxing and getting rid of the stress of the season. Make it easier by adding a Portland hot tub to the yard or porch. Hot tubs are a delightful way for the family to spend time together that doesn’t involve food and actually improves health.
It doesn’t take long to get a hot tub installed and they are easy to care for. They come in many sizes, so they can be fit into almost any space, and once they are up and running, will become a place where friends and family congregate naturally.
“To show people the benefits of soaking in a spa at home, Oregon Hot Tub will be providing free hot tub and swim spa wet tests for the entire month. They do recommend however that people wanting to schedule their free 30-minute wet test call us ahead of time to reserve their spot,” said Sue.
