Drink plenty of water
It’s important to stay hydrated even in the cooler winter months. Choose water rather than alcohol, soda, juice, etc. at your next holiday gathering.

Manage stress
Whether it’s hearing the same Christmas song 12 times in a day or butting heads with family members, stress can take a toll on your health. Stay healthy during the holidays, and keep the holidays fun by managing your stress.

Wash your hands often
Washing hands can help prevent sickness and prevent the spread of germs. Wash your hands thoroughly, and wash your hands often.

Make time for exercise
It’s easy to neglect physical activity during the holiday season. It’s cold outside, you have decorating and party planning to do, or maybe you’re busy visiting with relatives. Still, daily exercise is crucial for good health. Prioritize physical activity, and make time to be active.

Healthy holiday traditions
Consider taking up healthy holiday traditions. Go for a walk after Christmas dinner. Throw a football in the back yard. Go for a group bike ride, or walk around the neighborhood and sing carols.
