Don’t surrender the healthy habits you’ve been working on.  Overindulgence through alcohol, food, or too many late nights, only increases stress.  Limit alcohol use, eat healthy and get plenty of rest.

Good nutrition is important for your immune system which in turn helps your body fight illness. 

  • Make healthy choices at cocktail parties and holiday dinners… the cookies! 
  • Remember to eat healthy mini-meals throughout the day.

Exercise makes you feel better.  It’s very effective in elevating your mood by boosting endorphins.  Even short walks are beneficial, both physically and mentally. (NOTE: Don't exercise strenuously without consulting with your doctor first.)

Sleep is healing.  It helps the body maximize its ability to fight disease.  If you’re having trouble sleeping, speak with your physician or other health care provider. For tips about getting the sleep you need, click here.
