I’m a big fan of the holidays because I love food. But there’s also so much going on! However, it can begin to take a toll because everything seems so busy. This is my first holiday season since I started my fitness journey so I’m excited and nervous because I’m learning to take care of myself throughout the tons of tamales my family will make. Caring for yourself throughout the holiday chaos is so important mentally and physically.
I need ways to keep myself restored while things are happening. V8 +HYDRATE is the delicious new way I get an easy recovery after working out and a break to all the chaos of the season. But thankfully, V8 +HYDRATE is isotonic contains/has natural electrolytes from vegetables to achieve superior hydration. So I’m ready to take on the season. Here’s how I’m doing it.
‘Tis the Season to Indulge
I have been consistently working out this year and now that I’m going into the holidays, I am making sure I don’t fall off the wagon. One of my favorite ways to stay active is by taking pilates classes. I always make it a point to get to a class regardless of what is going on in my day. One of my classes is Saturday mornings so I love having a V8 +HYDRATE on hand to help my recovery as I get on with my day. Since it has no sugar added, no artificial sweeteners and every 8 oz. can provides one full serving of vegetables while only being 45 calories, it’s the perfect drink after a tough workout. Thankfully, V8 +HYDRATE comes in three refreshing plant-powered flavors: Strawberry Cucumber, Coconut Watermelon, and Orange Grapefruit.
Don’t Worry if You do Indulge
One of my biggest fears is overindulging but it is okay to let yourself enjoy things during the holidays. Go from braving the busy mall to a holiday party with this non-GMO, gluten-free and vegan-friendly drink! I get overwhelmed easily and I usually stress eat. Since I’m still trying to stay active and only treat myself to goodies sometimes, I can easily grab a V8 +HYDRATE while I’m on the go.
This holiday season will be my busiest and although I’m excited, I know it’s going to be tiring. It’s important to take some time to rest and just refresh yourself because from busy stores to getting the house ready for the family, it becomes a lot. So regardless if I’m decorating every room in my house and will be partying up with friends and family, I want to take a “me” moment to breathe and refocus myself to be able to enjoy it all.
How do you care for yourself in the holiday chaos?
