Four tips to stay healthy this festive season!
The festive period is here and that means you’ve likely spent the last few weeks eating, drinking, gifting and being merry! While this season is certainly something worth celebrating, all the hustle and bustle often causes us to develop some less than healthy habits. Rather than correcting these choices after the new year, why not incorporate a few healthy practices into your daily routine now? Here are four tips to stay healthy during the festive period.
Drink Plenty of Water
Cooler weather combined with Christmas get-togethers means dehydration is calling. Festive options like fizzy drinks and alcoholic beverages makes drinking water all the more vital in order to ensure you stay hydrated and glowing throughout the festive season.
Support Your Immune System
A diet incorporating a healthy mix of fruits and vegetables will help you feel more energetic and avoid the extra weight that tends to creep up at this time of year. Try incorporating your daily serving of fruits and veggies into your Christmas diet to avoid that sluggish post Christmas feeling.
Make Time for Exercise
Get up and get moving! Use the few quiet moments you have during the day to incorporate a bit of exercise. Consider doing sit-ups after you wake up in the morning and before bed. You could also break your cardio sessions into two, 15 minute runs rather than one 30 minute run to make it feel less daunting.
Serving others is what the festive season is all about. But don’t feel guilty for taking some time to treat yourself to some self-care this season, too. Try meditation, reading your favourite book, or indulging in a special hair treatment. You’ve earned your time to unwind after a long year!
We hope you find these tips helpful! The festive season is a special time, and we want everyone to be happy and healthy alongside their loved ones.
