No one is perfect at holiday time and more often than not, we all can overindulge. Instead of feeling guilty, easy cures are available for every imaginable "seasonal hangover."

Dr. Diet weighs in:

I loved the positive, fun spin of this article that offers small steps we can all take to improve how we feel and decrease our guilt, post-holiday overindulging.

Here's a quick review of what to do if:

You ate too much food: Focus on eating smaller meals that are lower in fat and calories and higher in fiber and re-hydrate yourself with fluids.

You're feeling exhausted from too much partying and too little sleep: Allow yourself to catch up on sleep by napping, but don't stay in bed all day or you'll have trouble going to sleep at night. Also, a 20 minute walk outside will energize you.

You have a stress hangover: Do a fun activity you enjoy like watching a funny movie, calling a special friend or writing in your journal. Take a power walk outside which will give your energy level and mood a boost.

You're hoarse from a night of talking too much: Rest your voice, drink lots of water and treat yourself to some chicken soup or hot tea.

Overdoing it can cause a small lapse in your program but this doesn't signal that it's time to completely abandon your healthy lifestyle. The sooner you can pick yourself up, take small steps so you can start feeling better, the sooner you'll be able to re-focus and start anew.
