The holidays are over, the kids are back to school and you are back to your routine but you might still be trying to recover from a prolonged indulgence. Skipped workouts, lack of sleep and excesses in rich foods, sweets and alcohol may have left a lingering affect on you. No fear – these 3 easy steps will get you back on track quickly and jumpstart any resolutions you may have made.

1. Drink More Water. Start your morning with a large glass of water (or 2). Drink a large glass before every meal and snack and another glass (or 2) during your meal and snack. Keep a water log if you need. Most of us do not drink enough water and introducing just a little more than usual will help clear toxins, help with digestion, aid in feelings of fullness and lead to clearer skin. Try One Our Fruit-Infused Waters

2. Eat more Veggies (and Fruit). Try to eat veggies with every meal, and if you feel motivated, as your snack(s) too. Fruits are great too but they do have more sugars so try and focus on veggies. Eat the rainbow – variety of types and colors. Veggies contribute to feelings of fullness, offer natural vitamins and minerals, aid in digestion and a healthy gut and assist with weight management. Try our vitamin-rich Indian Eggplant “Salsa” or Italian Farro Salad & Roasted Veggies.

3. Get more Sleep. Between 7-9 hours – no question. This might mean missing out on some tv shows and scaling back on your screen time, but in the end you will feel so much better. A quality good night’s rest decreases your stress hormone (cortisol) and assists with weight loss, allows your body the time to do what it needs to do – repairs, digestions, healing and is key in stress management. Find out much sleep should you be getting?

It’s as easy as that – I’m not suggesting drastic lifestyle changes just a few additions to what you’re already doing. These 3 will naturally leave you feeling fuller (less snacking and better weight control), improves overall wellness by improving intake of natural vitamins and ramping up immunity, leaves you feeling more energized and possibly ready and eager to take on more positive lifestyle changes.
