There's never been a better time to be a health-conscious eater. Why? Because these days, so many delicious foods that used to be off-limits are now thought to be really good for you.Still, “good for you” and “okay to eat in unlimited quantities” aren’t the same thing.

From boot camps to SoulCycle to early morning dance parties, there’s no shortage of fitness trends with a devoted, young, fit following. But when it comes to exercises that even the oldest and most out of shape can (and should) add to their workout repertoires keep it simple.
As this year comes to a close and we are ready to begin the New Year, most of us vow to make major changes in the coming weeks. We attempt to live a healthier life, without taking the time to reflect on what that “healthier life” will look and feel like. We think we need to change everything at once, but the fact is this is not realistic and we find our willpower depleted after a few weeks and give up.

The holiday season is a time to celebrate with family and friends. Unfortunately, it’s also a time when any people eat too much and gain weight. Of course you can control whether you overeat or allow yourself to gain weight.
Eating only three daily meals? Heavy and infrequent meals tend to trigger inactivity and a feeling of lethargy. You might have had the experience of feeling like resting after a heavy meal. Instead, try eating five times a day, around every 3 hours including two mini meals between three basic meals. Eating this way stimulates metabolism, increasing your energy levels. Since activity levels decrease throughout the day, less should be consumed in the latter part of the day.

It's a crazy time of year! Celebrations, shopping, food, food and more food! Sometimes the last thing we think about is ourselves. It's times like these when focusing on your well being is vital. I am not suggesting a full out detox but just small ways to keep yourself sane during the holiday season. Here are 6 easy SMALL things you can do during this busy time of year.
1) Take an Epsom salt bath: nothing fancy just 1-2 cups of plain Epsom salts to a warm tub. Ok if you want to indulge a bit add 10 drops of your favorite essential oil.
