It’s that time of the year again where your agenda is filled with endless lunches and Christmas parties. But who isn’t excited about pavlova, Christmas ham, homemade pies, cheese and of course, wine? With all of these delicious treats surrounding us, it can be hard keeping up with your fitness and healthy routine during the festive season.
Here are five tips to maintain a healthy lifestyle over the Christmas holidays.
Whether it’s a yoga session, going for a swim or a morning walk, try and stick to your routine. It will make a difference. There is nothing like a bit of exercise to help your digestion and get your blood pumping. STAY ACTIVE, track your fitness journey and brighten your bathroom up with the Yunmai Color smart scale. This smart scale is paired with an app that will help you achieve your health goals.
Don’t give up on your daily veggie intake for that slice of prosciutto. Have both of them! It is crucial to keep your gut healthy. Fruits and veggies are high in vitamins, fibre and antioxidants, which will help to maintain your health during Christmas.
Drinking 1.5 litres of water also works for the festive season, don’t just drink champagne! Sipping your full water quota will keep you hydrated and fight an unwanted hangover which may ruin your plans for the next day.
As you may know…it’s all about balance. You may eat and drink more than usual, but it is totally fine to indulge once in a while. This time of the year is made for family & friend catch-ups and laughter. Enjoy yourself and have a slice of pavlova!
After all the fun during the festive season, it’s time to detox your body and start the year on a healthy note. Green tea, drink LOTS OF GREEN TEA. Full of antioxidants, it will help to detoxify your system. You can also start the day with fresh lemon squeezed in hot water.
Get ready to celebrate the Christmas holidays but remember to stay healthy and fit.
