Spa Dealer Shares Healthy Holiday Tips, Hot Tubs Mesa, Chandler

“Gaining even a few pounds over the holidays can be stressful. The good news is, it isn’t necessary to forego the enjoyment of the season in order to stay healthy”, said Melinda Dalacas, manager of Southwest Spas and Pools.

Here are three of the best ways to stay healthy during the holidays.

Dive into Fun with a Hot Tub –Adding a portable spa or swim spa to the yard or porch can provide year-round fun and fitness for everyone in the home. It is also a great way to get through the hectic holiday season in better shape. Warm, soothing water is a great tension reliever and soaking for a few minutes at the end of a long day lowers blood pressure and relieves anxiety. 

Forgive Food Slip-ups – The holidays are about fun and enjoying family time. With many celebrations, making the rounds to visit with friends and family can be difficult. When food temptations are too much to resist, be forgiving and understanding. The more people accept mistakes, the easier it will be to move on and do better the rest of the time. 

Spend 10 Minutes Working Off Extra Calories – Long exercise sessions are great for better health, but too often, people give up on exercise during the busy holidays. While there may not be time for a long workout, just a few minutes of physical activity can help. Consider getting up early to do light cardiovascular exercise, or take a walk after meals.
