New Year’s Eve: Don’t Overindulge When Drinking Alcohol. But if you do…

Posted by Catherine Morgan on December 31, 2008

If you’re going to a New Year’s Eve party, then you are probably planning on having a couple alcoholic beverages too.  But there are several reasons why you should consider not overindulging on cocktails.  In addition to a hangover, if you are concerned about your weight, you should know that most alcoholic beverages are 99.9% empty calories.

Here are a few tips to help you avoid a New Year’s Day throbbing headache and hangover

1.  Eat before you drink.  Do not consume alcoholic beverages on an empty stomach.

2.  Drink plenty of water and non-alcoholic beverages between cocktails.

3.  Be a sipper.  It’s not a race, you have all night to finish your drink.

4.  Contrary to popular belief…You really can have fun at a party without being drunk.

But if you do overindulge, here are a few tips for that too

1.  Prevent dehydration by drinking water before you go to bed.

2.  Replace electrolytes by drinking a sports drink (like Gatorade) before you go to bed.

3.  Get a good night sleep.

4. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke in Bethesda, Maryland also recommends eating honey, which speeds up alcohol metabolism.

Well, whether you decide to drink or not to drink – Be safe, and have a wonderful time.

Are You Having Enough Fun And Enjoying Your Life?

Posted by Catherine Morgan on December 30, 2008

Are You Having Enough Fun And Enjoying Your Life?

In today’s busy and stressful times, some of us may be forgetting about a very important aspect of good health.

Having Fun.

It’s true. Eating healthy food, getting enough exercise and sleep is all very important.  But so is having a good time and enjoying life.

Tips for finding time to have fun

1. Schedule a certain amount of time each day for doing something fun.

2. Include activities you enjoy doing on your own, as well as others that you enjoy doing with friends or family.

3. Planning activities is important, but being spontaneous is also beneficial.

When was the last time you did something just for fun?
