This is the time of year when we seem to be running from this party, to that event, and then back again! Somehow, in the middle of all this commotion, we find time to go shopping for all the gifts we need, for all of those special people in our lives! Many of us feel stressed during the holidays, not only from the unrelenting ebb and flow of the seasonal tide, but for fear of not meeting people’s expectations. These are the things that can jeopardize our health.

Sometimes, through all the hustle and bustle, we have a tendency to overlook one of the most important aspects of this magical time of year – giving ourselves the gift of health, and peace of mind. This is a gift that has lasting impact. So, embrace this time and give yourself the gift of health this holiday season… and start the new year off well!

You know, most of the diseases and health issues we’re struggling with are due to our personal diet and lifestyle choices. Our health is largely determined by what we choose to feed our bodies, and our minds. This is the time of year when we tend to indulge more than we normally would, which is why when January rolls around, many of us make vows to get healthier.

Remember to take some time to breathe. Take a walk. Lay down for a nap. Nourish your body by feeding yourself plenty of fresh organic fruits and veggies. These are all things that can help boost your immune system and promote sustained energy in the body. Begin or end your day thinking about things you are thankful for and write them down. Start making these small choices everyday so that they become a healthy habit in your life!

We all need specific supplements to help us move from deficiency to sufficiency. Most people are deficient in many key nutrients. Finding the right balance in this area is what helps us to not only survive… but THRIVE!

Not only does Healthy Habit Health Foods have thousands of vitamins, supplements and key nutrients to choose from, we also have a highly knowledgeable customer service team to help you navigate your options and find the best course of action for you!

So remember, don’t neglect yourself this holiday season, and come on by Healthy Habit to celebrate the gift that keeps on giving… YOUR HEALTH!

In the holiday spirit, and to help you kick the New Year off in style, we are having a BIG party at the store the weekend of January 10 and 11! There will be all kinds of fun surprises, from special guests to healthy gifts, so mark your calendar now, sign up for our newsletter on our website, listen to our radio show, or better yet, drop by the store so we can remind you in person! There will be big sales, giveaways and lots of specials, all to celebrate the New Year… and a NEW YOU!
