You may be healthy most of the time, but almost everyone relaxes a little from his or her healthy routine during the holidays.
If you tend to fall into the all-or-nothing mentality, you could wake up in the new year wondering why your paints don’t fit and where all your healthy habits went. These tips will help you have a healthy holiday season.
Avoid extremes
Practice self self-care, by being more present with your habits. Instead of going to extremes look at your habits and see where you can cut back. Instead of reaching for coffee with extra sugar in the morning you can reach for water or tea with lemon. Eating healthy is essential but it starts with the first thing you put in your mouth.

Drink More Water
The water and lemon can work wonders for your digestive system, if you eat a lot of food with sugar or fat this water with lemon can help you feel better fast. Water can help boost your immune system; it will balance your pH levels and stimulate the elimination of toxins from your body. You’ll rejuvenate your body and help flush out your system. Water can help flush out toxins and improve your smile. It removes bacteria build up that can cause cavities, says r. Amanda M. Tinkle a General Dentist in Vancouver, Washington.

Drink more Smoothies
Give your digestive system a break and drink more smoothies or green juice. This is s simple gentle cleanse that can give your body a break from chewing and digesting solid foods and give your whole system a rest.

Move your body and sweat
Exercise is perhaps the best way to detox and move your body. You can go for a run, a long bike ride, or try yoga (the twists and inversions are good for detoxing your body). Moving your body will help release toxins from your system, plus give you an endorphin boost, and it leave you feeling super refreshed and renewed quickly. Sweating can help clear out pores as well.

Eat Leafy Greens
Eating more vegetables is one of the fastest ways to feel better. The leafy green vegetables are good for your health including your teeth, says Justin Marostica a Tigard Oregon Dentist.

No matter what, if you over eat this holiday season, be compassionate and kind to yourself.
