Holiday Blues Tip 5

Tip #5: Care for the Temple of Your Body

Eat well, drink a lot of water, exercise, and then be merry. Instead of making one more feeble New Year's resolution to join a gym or take a yoga class, do it right now. You will be amazed at how the smallest bit of movement will lift your spirits, and how reducing the amount of junk food, sugar, and alcohol you consume will reduce your blues.

And sleep--for goodness' sake, do whatever it takes to get enough of it. Sleep deprivation is at the root of many people's depression.
