7 Tips To Stay Healthy During Christmas

During Christmas Holidays people’s daily routine is usually affected. These days are often full of events, gatherings, food, alcohol and parties. Below are 7 ways to keep ourselves healthy during party season, according to The Guardian.

  1. Have a Filling Breakfast: Having a healthy and generous breakfast can help us control our appetite later in the day and limit the consumption of unhealthy and sugary snacks.
  2. Drink Less: According to Rosamund Dean- journalist and author of Mindful Drinking: How Cutting Down Can Change Your Life- we should restrict alcohol to three days each week and also limit the number of drinks we consume.
  3. Power Nap: A 30 minutes power nap within the day, makes a huge difference, according to Nick Littlehales, author of Sleep: The Myth of 8 Hours.
  4. Adapt your Exercise Routine: Don’t give up exercise. Just adjust it!
  5. Keep Healthy Snacks Nearby: Keep a selection of healthier snacks, such as fruit or nuts, in your drawer or bag. “Never go to a party really hungry,” says Holly Davidson, personal trainer. “Have a snack before you go.”
  6. Drink Water: It’s crucial if we want to avoid hangovers and remain hydrated.
  7. Wear a Scarf Over Your Mouth and Nose: A study found that the virus replicates better in lower temperatures, so keeping our nose warm with a scarf could help prevent a cold.
