Staying Healthy During the Holidays

Staying Healthy During the Holidays

The holiday season poses challenges to healthy living, as revealed by a survey from The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. Two-thirds of respondents admit to overindulging in food, 45% take a break from exercise, and over half feel fatigued with limited personal time. Additionally, a third confess to increased alcohol consumption. Dr. Barbara Bawer emphasizes the difficulty of maintaining healthy habits amid holiday activities and advises sticking to a routine. Her suggestions include planning meals, maintaining exercise schedules, prioritizing adequate sleep, and practicing moderation with alcohol. Bawer underscores the importance of saying no when necessary and advocates for small, consistent changes for overall health goals.
