Have a Happy & Healthy Holiday Season

The festive season is full of fun, laughter, happiness, &  toasting to good health &  a fresh new year. As a result of such jollification, it can become all too easy to neglect your body &  put it under extreme stress. As December is usually a time for frantic end-of-year tasks, it’s vital that you take the time to nourish it, look after it, &  of course, treat it. Here are six ways to make it through the holiday season. Have a Happy & Healthy Holiday Season.

Get plenty of sleep

With so much to do &  so little time, it’s far too easy to stay up to the wee hours of the morning wrapping last minute Christmas gifts. However, it’s essential that you get plenty of sleep. Any personal trainer will tell you that the key to a rested body &  mind is a good night’s sleep, so that is what you should aim for. Go to bed at a reasonable hour, don’t leave tasks until late at night, &  turn off any distractions such as mobile phones &  TVs.

Have a healthy snack before parties

You will no doubt attend more parties in December than you do at any other time of the year. At these parties, you’ll find tables laden with sweet &  savory treats that tempt your taste buds. When you’re looking to get in shape, indulging in plate after plate of high fat &  high sugar foods is the last thing you want to be doing. A good weight loss tip is eating a healthy snack before you attend a party. Your stomach will be satiated, &  you’ll be less likely to fill up on unhealthy food.

 

Drink half your body weight in water

During any weight loss program, &  in everyday life, drinking water is a must. Your body is made up of 60 percent water, &  maintaining this percentage is vital. Even though December is a frantic month, take the time to drink water. There are plenty of phone apps available to help you remember to do so as well. Keep hydrated, flush toxins out of your body, &  feel better for it.

Don’t over schedule

Between attending physical fitness classes with a personal trainer, working, decorating your home &  sending out Christmas presents &  invites, it’s easy to overburden yourself. Stay happy &  healthy this festive season by not over-scheduling. Plan your days in advance, &  allow plenty of time for you.

Enjoy the foods you love without guilt. They only come around once a year!

Your weight loss program is important. It keeps you looking &  feeling great, all the while enabling you to experience weight loss &  better feelings of health &  wellbeing. While sticking to your diet is beneficial, it’s crucial that you don’t feel guilty for eating that turkey dinner, putting butter on your potatoes, &  eating that box of chocolates.

Physical fitness &  health are vital, but you won’t be doing your weight loss journey a disservice by spending one day of the year eating food you enjoy. There are also ways in which you can get around your guilt. Opt for low salt broth in your cooking, use low salt butter, try trim milk instead of full fat, &  share your box of chocolates instead of having them all to yourself.
