But how do I do that?!
- I balance my diet by making sure to eat lots of fruits and veggies to make up for any Christmas treats I indulge in. Don't deny yourself a few little goodies, just make sure you balance out all the sugar with some greens and nutrient dense foods.
- I balance my mind and spirit by making sure to schedule some time for quiet. Whether it's a warm bath, reading a book or heading out for a run. Sometimes you just need to shut things off for a bit and enjoy a little peace. And with all the festivities, family and friends visiting this time of year, I find it absolutely necessary to keeping my sanity.
- Keeping my family balanced can be tricky. The kids are all about Santa and Christmas and presents and cookies!! So I try my best to let them enjoy the season but also work in some good old fashioned fresh air and exercise to combat the Christmas crazies. A walk in the woods, playing at the park or looking at Christmas lights helps everyone to wind down and just enjoy the season.
On top of all this I've also had some help from Phenoh 7.4. What's that you ask?

I've grabbed one of these delicious drinks as a post-run boost and even just as a mid-afternoon hydrating pick-me-up. Phenoh 7.4 has a nice light taste without being overly sweet and I've found it works great for quenching my thirst. I also love that it's not packed full of sugar and that it's alkaline so that I'm not adding any more acids to my diet, especially this time of year when we're surrounded by all those sugary treats.
What's the big deal about pH anyway?
Well, your body functions best if it's slightly alkaline or having a pH about 7.4. Most of us have diets that fall more on the acidic end of the scale. Things like sugar, coffee, alcohol and processed foods all make our bodies more acidic and that can leave us more susceptible to some unpleasant things. Parasites, yeasts, toxins and even cancer cells prefer and acid environment so that can mean we end up with more illnesses and inflammation. Yuk! But by keeping our diet on the alkaline side we can help avoid some of these diseases.
So whether you're working out hard or just trying to make it through those busy holiday days, Phenoh 7.4 is a great natural way to boost your energy and help keep you balanced.
