Getting a healthy headstart on 2018

(CNN) - (12/22/2017)  Do you want to celebrate a healthy holiday season? We have four ways you can get a head start on getting healthy for 2018.

Holidays are notorious for situations you can't control with things like surprises, friends, family, the traffic. However, what you can control is your ability to make healthy choices.If you're looking to kick start a healthier lifestyle, there is no better time than now.

Go easy on the booze during the holidays. Adding all those extra empty calories to your diet will not help your hangover. Not only could your blood sugar skyrocket from all the additional sugar,
alcohol temporarily keeps your body from burning fat.

Stay active. With all of the extra days off from work and school, don't just sit around all day. A study from the annals of internal medicine found that people who sat for less than 30 minutes at a time had the lowest risk of an early death.

also, try not to stress out too much and don't skip sleep. The holiday season only comes around once a year, so enjoy it.
