Top 5 Holiday Self-Care Tips
It’s the most wonderful time of the year—and possibly the most stressful. We all look forward to spending time with family and friends, preparing special meals and treats, decorating to the nines, and of course, finding the perfect gifts for loved ones. But this can also be overwhelming at times resulting in stress and not feeling our healthy best.
We’ve put together some self-care tips to help keep you from running on empty and forgetting to take care of yourself during this busy time.
Sleep Does a Body Good
This is really a no-brainer—good sleep has a huge effect on both mental and physical wellbeing. The holidays are often a hectic time with a lot of hustle and bustle where you’re constantly traveling and, on the go, to visit family and friends leading towards less sleep. In order to help slow down, try meditation, avoid blue light from TVs, tablets, and phones, take a warm bath or hot shower. You may also want to try 100% drug-free Nature’s Bounty Sleep3 Gummies a fun and delicious way to support a restful sleep when experiencing occasional sleeplessness.*
Keep Movement in Your Day
Don’t forget to take time to keep your body moving—in the right way. If you have a regular exercise routine, stick to it. Make sure you carve out enough time to keep your fitness levels up. If you don’t exercise regularly, make a point to get out and take a walk or put on your favorite tunes and dance like nobody’s watching. Exercise, in any form, does wonders for the mind, body, and soul.
Fuel Your Body with Goodness
It’s super important to feed your body with healthy, nutritious food to keep your immune system running on all cylinders. Sure, you’re going to splurge and have a few treats when the gatherings begin. But take the time to be mindful of your daily eating habits by incorporating lots of fruits and veggies and you can also supplement with Nature’s Bounty Immune 24 Hour +, the only vitamin C with 24 hour immune support.* Immune 24 Hour + contains Ester-C which has been clinically studied to stay in your white blood cells, an important component of your immune system, for up to 24 hours which is longer than regular Vitamin C.* Keep your body running smoothly all year long by nourishing a healthy immune system.*
Treat Yourself with Kindness
Well, this can come in many different forms but now’s the time to take care of you. It’s important that you look and feel your best so don’t forget to treat yourself. Maybe it’s scheduling a massage, attending a meditation session, or going to the hair salon for the full treatment! Speaking of hair, did you know that Nature’s Bounty offers a great supplement called Hair Growth featuring Advanced Hair Complex that has been clinically shown to help grow thicker, fuller hair in three months.* Whatever makes you feel your best, be sure to take some me-time and all the rest will fall into place.
Stress Management—Your Health Will Thank You
This is one of the most important self-care tips of all and should always be a priority—not just during the holidays. So how can you help manage stress? It’s really a combination of the four previous tips we’ve given—all solid ways to help you relax. Another possible way is to supplement with magnesium such as Nature’s Bounty Advanced Magnesium Glycinate which supports a calm and relaxed mood.*
