It’s easy to forget about personal well-being during this season of holiday gifting and get-togethers. However, there are ways to help maintain your health while eating and getting enough rest during the holidays and wintertime.
MONITOR REST & SLEEP TIME:
Getting enough rest tops Wellington’s list of things to do as we move into the colder winter months. When you consistently get less than seven hours of sleep a night, it can affect your overall health and well-being. In fact, a recent survey from Tranquility found that more than half of Americans say stress or anxiety is a barrier to sleep. Wellington adds now is the time to prioritize rest and relaxation so that you stay on top of your self-care, especially during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
The wellness lifestyle contributor suggests going to bed and waking up at the same time every day, avoiding screens before bedtime, and adding weighted blankets to your routine. Wellington noted that weighted blankets can help improve sleep quality, since they use deep calming pressure to help users relax, fall asleep and wake more well rested.
One recommended brand is Tranquility, America’s No. 1 selling weighted blanket. “These blankets make the perfect gift for anyone on your holiday list and come in a range of weights and styles, including snuggly options, like soft Sherpa, and a stylish chunky knit,” says Wellington.
Tranquility weighted blankets can be found in-store and online at Walmart, Target and Sam’s Club this holiday season.
“SWAP OUT” FOR HEALTHIER OPTIONS:
Wellington’s winter wellness tips include a focus on diet, including portion control, moderation, and substituting less caloric foods for others. She says “swap outs” are a great way to eliminate a less healthy item by replacing it with a healthier alternative.
Another brand the wellness contributor supports is Mighty Sesame Company. She likes their no mess squeezable, convenient, ready-to-use bottles of tahini condiments, which come in a variety of flavors, including Harissa, Whole Seed and Organic. She prefers to swap out ketchup, peanut butter, or creamy dressings for the tahini options.
She highlights that the brand makes their tahini from nutrient dense Ethiopian sesame seeds. The tahini varieties are loaded with protein and calcium, while being organic, vegan, gluten and dairy-free, kosher, and halal. Wellington adds that this makes the brand’s tahini a healthy alternative to butter or mayonnaise.

MAKE ROOM OF SUPPLEMENTS:
One of Wellington’s winter wellness tips is geared towards children. She says take advantage of the season and get outdoors, adding, “Now is not the time to hideout inside.” Instead, she suggests being active while getting sunshine, saying, “It helps with your health and mood.”
Additionally, she encourages the entire family to eat a rainbow of produce. Orange and yellows, like carrots and oranges, aid in heart health, while helping prevent colds. Reds, like tomatoes and strawberries help support memory. Blues, like blueberries, eggplant, and purple potatoes help prevent cancer.
However, the wellness contributor admits that kids sometimes have nutritional gaps. In this case, she turns to supplements. For quality you can trust, Wellington likes KAL Dinosaurs gummies supplements to help support a child’s natural development. The brand’s KAL Vitamin D Rex, is a Vitamin D supplement that comes in tasty flavors like mango and strawberry. She says it’s a great option for healthy bones and a strong immune system. Additionally, the brand’s KAL Sleep-a-Saurus supplement has 1 milligram of melatonin to support a healthy sleep cycle. Scientific studies find melatonin can help children fall asleep.

MAINTAIN A HEALTHY BODY WEIGHT:
Weight management can be a struggle during the holiday season. For that reason, Wellington highlights a few ways to maintain a healthy body weight with her winter wellness tips.
“Exercise is key to keeping a healthy weight,” says Wellington, “You might want to change it up because of the weather, but I always recommend spending time outdoors — science shows that it is beneficial to a positive mindset and healthy body. You can hike, bike, or take a walk in your neighborhood,” says Wellington, “20 to 30 minutes is a good goal,” she adds.
The wellness contributor also says devices can be helpful to keep you motivated. A new product that stands out to Welllington is the Sportneer Smart Scale. The scale can help people know more about their body and be more intentional with their workout routines. The scale measures beyond numeric weight and captures 14 unique metrics including muscle mass, body fat, water weight and more with high accuracy that is comparable to professional body composition scales used by fitness and health experts.
Wellington points out that the smart scale helps users understand where weight loss or gain comes from, adding “Understanding the body composition metrics can help users develop a customized approach to weight management, whether trying to lose weight, shed body fat, or build muscle in one area of the body.”
The smart scale pairs with the Sportneer mobile app, allowing users to access a health report right from their phone. Wellington loves that she is able to store unlimited profiles, so the whole family can keep track on their health and wellness journey.
