It’s that time of year — moods are festive but calendars are jam-packed and to-do lists are long!
Overindulgence and the craziness that can be holiday prep can leave you feeling drained.
It can be really easy to feel drained and like your body is out of sync. So, staying healthy and hydrated is at the top of my priority list. New V8 +HYDRATE® is just the thing to help you get hydrated and back into the spirit for the holiday. It’s now always in my bag during the holiday rush and after those late night parties and get-togethers.
V8 +HYDRATE is a unique beverage – using naturally-occurring electrolytes and glucose of the sweet potato, blending perfectly with water, it creates an isotonic beverage that quickly replenishes fluids and nutrients.
I love all three unique flavors, Strawberry Cucumber, Coconut Watermelon and Orange Grapefruit. They are clean, crisp and delicious tasting. What’s great is that there is no added sugar or artificial sweeteners. They are also non-GMO, Gluten Free and Vegan-Friendly. And….every 8oz can provides one full serving of vegetables, with only 45 calories. Enough said!
Now that you know how you can stay hydrated with V8 +HYDRATE, here are some other ways to take care of yourself this holiday season — put yourself on your list!!
1) Lose the Expectations – stop worrying so much about what’s expected and give yourself permission to enjoy the holiday season. If that means saying no to something, it’s okay. Feel good about starting new traditions and doing something unexpected or non-traditional.
2) Don’t Lose Sight of Healthy Habits – Don’t totally let go your standards. A good rule of thumb is still the 80/20 rule. It’s totally okay to enjoy, enjoy, enjoy at that holiday party. But don’t do it all the time throughout the season. Eat well 80% of the time and let yourself enjoy and indulge the other part of the time. V8 + HYDRATE is great for replenishing yourself after those indulgences!
3) Set Boundaries – Set a calendar and list of to-dos ahead of time that you can manage and stick to it. Boundaries aren’t negative, they’re meant to be positive areas that you know you operate best within, so use them!
Above all else, ENJOY and be with people who make you happy. Good food, good friends and good times.
