Hello Ladies! We have missed you all! Life has been extra busy these last two weeks. So busy, we weren't able to post last week. The irony is that our the blog post was about Organization. (HA HA) When I was younger, my Grandma had a mower that she would let all of us Grandkids drive around the property. It had a stick shift that would control the speed. You had the "Turtle" that was the really slow speed, the in between speed, and the "Rabbit" fun, fast speed. That is what I feel like we are on, the Rabbit speed. Holidays sure are crazy with so many activities. Many of the important things in our lives tend to slide. Today, we are excited to feature one of our good friends with some advise on Staying Heathly during the Holidays. Five ways to stay healthy during the holidays!!
- Get some sleep ladies!! Yes busy moms I'm talking to you too!! I know you have shopping to do, errands to run, babies who need you and the older kids are fighting; your hubby needs your attention and your relatives are coming in from out of town; the house is a reck and you have Christmas parties to plan for and church activities you are involved in BUT YOU NEED to find some time to shut everything off and get some sleep. Did you know that the lack of sleep can be related to weight gain. When we don't get enough sleep it impacts our hunger and fullness hormones and one specifically called ghrelin. This hormone signals our brain and tells us when we are hungry... when we are tired our body makes more of this hormone. So guess what, we think we are hungry when in reality we are exhausted.
5 . Get some exercise.. yes I said it. Exercising does not have to take very long or be very difficult, make it fun. Go with the family for a walk around the neighborhood. If you can't find just 30 minutes in your day to get in a good workout then find ways to add movement to your everyday activities. Be creative, take the stairs instead of the elevator, park the car further away from the store entrance, stand while working on the computer or scrolling through your social media.
