Have a Happy, Healthy Holiday Season

When it comes to healthy eating and exercise, the holiday season means one thing: lots of temptations. Whether you are trying to lose a few pounds or simply maintain your current weight, we could all use some extra help when it comes to surviving those few critical months full of get-togethers, cooler weather and holiday stress.

Chilly weather makes it easy to be less active and indulge in seasonal treats, but that's not a good reason to bring exercise routines to a halt. In fact, exercise is vital during cold winter months as it boosts your mood and metabolism. Low-impact exercise like walking can be done any time of year; just remember to bundle up. There are also plenty of fun, holiday-themed walks and runs this time of year, which tend to have a more relaxed atmosphere and are great for any level of walker or runner.

The holidays can be extremely stressful, and it is important to find time to relax and rejuvenate. Schedule time for you and your family to relax, watch holiday movies and decorate for the season. Or take advantage of your BluePerks® discounts, which can save you money on massages and other spa packages, gym memberships and so much more.
