Avoid the holiday blues by not letting your diet and exercise routine completely collapse. Over eating and having way too much sugar and alcohol can really make your body and therefore, your brain feel the blues. If you are over 40 you should really be taking enzymes with most meals, but especially holiday type meals that are rich and processed. Our ability to completely digest our food is of utmost importance and helps to create a net gain out of most meals. When digestion is incomplete, it is very easy to end up losing energy when we eat a meal. In a short time we can become lethargic and more depressed. Remember the season is about giving and sharing of yourself and if you are down it is difficult to participate. Have wonderful holidays and take care of yourselves.
