Happy 2017! I can’t believe it’s official the New Year! Time flies! I hope you all had a fabulous holiday and rang in the new year with those you love most! I don’t know about you but January 2nd always seems to leave me exhausted and feeling sluggish. Between Christmas meals the champagne toast at midnight my body is in need of some TLC! I’m ready to get back in to my routine and start this year off on the right food! Today, I’m sharing 3 tips on how to cure last year’s hangover!
First, drink some water
How many of you have woken up in the morning (whether after a night of drinking or just staying up late) with your heart beating out of your chest? That’s dehydration! Aim to drink at least 32 ounces of water first thing after waking up in the morning. This helps saturate your tissues and gets your digestion moving. What’s even better for that dehydrated feeling? Electrolyte water. Your sodium, potassium and calcium are all out of whack and you need to fix that. Grab a bottle of coconut water, it tastes delicious and it’s great for your body!
Next, break a sweat
Get out of the house and hit the gym! Or put on a heart-pumping workout video. Sweating will help to release all of the toxins floating around in your system. If you’re still feeling a little queasy from your New Year’s Eve celebrations the gym may be the last place you feel like going. But trust me, after about 5 minutes you will feel like a whole new woman! Just keep it at a lower intensity.
Lastly, eat a nutritious meal
After you workout you need to rebuild the muscle you just broke down. Grab some eggs, some multigrain toast and some veggies and whip yourself up an omelet. Even if you didn’t make it to the gym it’s still important to eat a nutritious breakfast. Your body is lacking essential vitamins and minerals which is why you feel so lethargic and run down. Stay away from greasy food and opt for nutrient dense choices!
Your body is drained and needs some love and it’s time for you to take care of it. If you’re really looking to kick start your New Year pick up the Women’s Mind Body Wellness Summit! It’s a six-part video series focusing on women’s health. It also includes four never before seen bonus videos and our broadcast notes! P.S.
