      Stay healthy through the festive season!

      It’s that time of the year when there’s cheer in the air and the festivities have begun. It’s also the time to care a bit more for your body as you are more susceptible to flus and colds. With parties and dinners aplenty, there is also the tendency to pile on the calories.

      Careful with the eats and beverages

      The festive season comes with loads of food, be watchful of your portions. Do not go to a party hungry, make sure you have a small snack before you leave, this will make sure you don’t overeat. Make wise food choices, pick sushi, guacamole or hummus dip and veggie sticks over deep-fried or battered foods, chips and creamy dips. Take probiotic supplements to help with your digestion. Eat healthy foods along with those cakes and biscuits.

      Go slow with the alcohol. Make every other drink non-alcoholic and pace yourself well. Alcohol can deplete your B Vitamins rapidly as they get used up in alcohol metabolism. Take a Vitamin B supplement before you go out partying.

      Stay active

      Don’t be a couch potato. Keep yourself active with exercise and activity during the festival season. Schedule in time for exercise as the holiday season could keep you pretty occupied. Go for an early morning walk, or walk an extra round while shopping, take the stairs, find ways and means to add in a little more activity to your life.

      Prevent flus and colds

      Get a flu shot. Try and stay away from those infected by flu and cold. Wash your hands well before eating. Keep your surroundings clean.

      Make sure of quality sleep

      With all the parties around, your sleep is sure to get affected. Keep a tab on your sleep and make sure its adequate. It’s important to get quality sleep between  10pm and 2am as this is the time when the adrenal glands rejuvenate and they handle most of the body’s hormonal system.

      Keep time for yourself

      Do not overschedule holiday plans as these can be a cause of stress by themselves. Unplug from technology and do a bit of tech detox. Conflicts even within families can flare up during festive times so make sure you have some ‘me’ time to help you stay calm.
