For sure, you are already excited for all the festivities that are about to take place in the days to come. In your head, you can already picture all the parties you will attend and how fun each of them would be. You may also be thinking about all those relatives and friends whom you haven’t seen for a long time. Once again, you will be reunited with them. Food is also something to look forward to. Just imagine all the dishes you’ll devour in every feast!
Yet, in the midst of everything, don’t forget about moderation. With all the happenings and the excesses they come with, it pays to remain mindful of what you do with your body and what you consume. Have fun but try to be healthy during the holidays, so you can make the most of the Christmas season.
Here are some tips you might want to consider:
Learn how to say NO
In the Philippines, it is normal for family members and friends to express their love through food. When you visit relatives, they are usually very eager to cook for you. Same thing goes for friends who like to treat you to nice meals. But as we all know, too much of anything can be bad. What you can do is say no sometimes. Is a friend inviting you to a buffet dinner? Say no, but suggest to go a la carte instead, especially if you are not really hungry. Try to explain your reasons and for sure, they will understand. This way, you can avoid taking in what’s more than needed by your body.
Eat healthy and detoxify whenever possible
Eating healthy can be difficult when you’re in a party, where there are lots of fatty and sugary food. To make up for all these, it would be great if you could try to eat healthy when there are no special occasions. Have more veggies and fruits when eating on a normal day at home and choose healthy and fresh juices over soft drinks. You may also detoxify to flush toxins out of your body in between feasts. There are lots natural day to do this. It is also something you can do at Nurture Wellness Village.
Get enough sleep
Sure, it usually gets difficult to get enough sleep during the holiday season because of all the things happening around. Yet, it isn’t something you may simply give up on. Remember, enough sleep is important because it allows your body to rest and regenerate. Lack of sleep may also weaken your immune system, making you more vulnerable to sicknesses.
Wash your hands regularly
Since you are dealing with lots of people in every event taking place during the holiday season, it’s best to be more cautious to lower your risk of catching common colds and other viral infections. Apart from eating healthy and getting enough sleep to boost your immune system, wash your hands regularly.
Staying healthy can be challenging during the holidays, given all the temptations and events taking place. But this doesn’t mean that you should give up easily. There a lot more things you can do to protect your health! When you’re healthy, you can have enough time and energy to spend moments and make more memories with family and friends.
