Healthy holiday hacks to get back on track

When it comes to your health, it's easy to go off the rails during the holiday season. Here are some tips for getting back on track.

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Too much sugar, salt, booze and stress over the holidays can leave us feeling lousy as we head into the new year.

It's tough to avoid these seasonal health hazards, but there are ways to get back on track if you go off the rails a little.

Lifestyle Coach Andy Churchill from Profile by Sanford joins KARE 11 News at 4 with some healthy tips to help you quickly bounce back:

  • Go for a 20-30 minute walk to snap yourself out of the sluggish snacking mode.
  • Consume extra water -- 64 ounces or 8-12 glasses -- and higher water content vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers.
  • Drink a low-calorie sports drink if you're consuming more alcohol than usual. An omelette the next morning can also help.
  • Take time for yourself -- read a good book or get outside.
