4 Body and Mind Health Tips

Internist Dr. Kayode Sotonwa notes that holidays need not be stress-inducing or fattening.
Amid all the celebrating from Thanksgiving Day through New Year’s, many people fill their schedules, and stomachs, with unnecessary things. Internist Dr. Kayode Sotonwa offers some suggestions for maintaining sanity and bodily health during the holiday season. He says that anyone can make just a few changes in their schedule in order to cut back on unhealthy eating and keep their bodies and minds strong and fresh, even in the face of gigantic meals, unending chores, and family get-togethers.
Dr. Kayode Sotonwa says that four sensible tips are the keys to a sane season. He suggests the following:Go for walks every day: Cramped schedules can be a huge stress on the body and mind. Taking a brisk walk alone or with a friend can do wonders for mental health and the metabolism. Too many holiday revelers skimp on exercise when the sun sets earlier and there are all kinds of extra chores to do. A daily walk, Dr. Kayode Sotonwa suggests, can be the perfect remedy for overburdened brains and bodies.

When shopping, park far away from the store entrance: Doing so serves a double purpose: it encourages more walking, which is good for the body, and cuts down on the often stressful task of finding a parking spot.

Try to stretch each morning or night: A relaxing 10 or 20 minute session of light stretching can do wonders for sore muscles and busy minds, according to Dr. Kayode Sotonwa. Many stretching enthusiasts do a session each morning and evening, which helps the body wake up after a long night’s sleep and gets it ready for sleep at bedtime. In many Asian cultures, particularly in China, morning stretching is a routine for most everyone.

Keep healthful snacks within reach, and junk food out of sight: It is easy to overeat during the holidays. That’s why Dr. Kayode Sotonwa recommends keeping sliced fruits and vegetables in a big bowl in the kitchen and elsewhere in the house where people can reach them conveniently. It is also a smart idea to hide or just get rid of extra bags of chips and cookies. There will be plenty of opportunity to enjoy snacks during the holidays, so there is no need to tempt fate.

Dr. Kayode Sotonwa notes that people can enjoy the holidays to the fullest while keeping their bodies and minds healthy and well rested.
