Dr. Kayode Sotonwa Highlights Ways to Stay Healthy and Happy for the Holidays
Dr. Kayode Sotonwa is one that relates to his patients in wanting to be the healthiest possible. That’s why he hopes to disprove the belief that many people out there might have that it’s a difficult task to stay healthy during the holiday season. This is usually due to an abundance of sweet treats, fattening food, cold/flu season running rampant well as the occasional moments of holiday-related stress. But Dr. Kayode Sotonwa shares with that with incorporating the following tips to a routine this season, anyone will find themselves in well health and feeling great.
- Fuel the Body: Knowing what foods will help a person feel and do their best throughout the day is a key element of health and wellness. Dr. Kayode Sotonwa shares the holidays are one of the most important times to consume them. This allows people to focus more on giving your body what it needs (things like leafy green vegetables, protein, fiber and healthy fats) and less on trying to avoid certain foods, which can make it easier to crack into temptation.
- But Still Have Fun with Food: It is still okay to eat sweets, foods high in saturated fat or sodium content as long as it is in moderation. Dr. Kayode Sotonwa shares that eating a healthy snack before going to a holiday party or event makes it much easier to indulge in those types of food more moderately. Try a crunchy pick like carrot sticks or celery, or something sweet like a piece of fruit or a box of raisins.
- Relax (In Both Ways): When people think of relaxation, they most ultimately think about how to do so for the body. But the truth is that the mind is something that also needs to take time to relax and unwind as well. Take some time to do something you enjoy to clear you head of all the Christmas shopping lists, meal plans/preparation and more.
Dr. Kayode Sotonwa knows employing these tips in any routine will help anyone feel their healthiest this year.
