Eight More Holiday Survival Tips

In honor of Chanukah (a happy one to all who celebrate), here are eight easy ways to stay healthy:
  1. Park further away: You will burn a few more calories, and save yourself the frustration of circling for a space.
  2. Shop locally: You will save gas, help the local economy and get some fresh air.
  3. Drink one glass of water before each meal: You will eat less and stay hydrated.
  4. Share a fun activity after a big meal: If you can’t convince everyone to go for a walk, suggest flag football, ice skating or turn on the music and dance.
  5. Choose a slinky dress or snug pants:  Your clothes will tell you when you have eaten enough.
  6. Limit alcohol consumption: You will avoid empty calories and the reduction in willpower.
  7. Chew gum while cooking: It will be harder to consume extra “tasting” calories.
  8. Do just ten minutes of exercise: Even ten minutes can burn a few calories and help keep blood pressure and blood sugar in check.
