3 Ways to Recover from the Holidays

Elissa Holzman
Health Coach, Health/E, LLC

The holidays are over and it’s time to get back to normal life! But for a person with Multiple Sclerosis, it can take extra time to recover – even from happy events. During the holiday season, schedules are disrupted, exercise routines are thrown off, and regular nutritious foods are tucked away while treats are bountiful and hard to resist. And since 80% of people living with MS also live with fatigue, all the excitement can be especially exhausting.

Here are 3 tips that will help you enjoy the time following the holiday season.

· Take a break – The best way to avoid a physical meltdown is to head it off. Schedule time for yourself each day to rejuvenate – take a 20-minute nap or just close your eyes, rest and read a book, or sit quietly and meditate.

· Fill up on healthy foods – There will be sweets and treats wherever you look, so put them away to remove temptation. On your countertops, put out healthy fuel – like brightly colored vegetables (carrots, oranges, peppers) – and your body will thank you.

· Keep it real – It may take some time to get back to where you were before the holidays, but stressing about it doesn’t help. Spread out your commitments and be realistic about what’s best for you so that you’re not overscheduled.

These tips can help you find your energy in a positive and enjoyable way, and to enjoy the time after the holiday season is over.
