Holidays is fast approaching and it’s that time of the year again where we are bombarded with foods around the table. We may be caught up with all the fun and excitement that the holiday may bring, but we also need to stay on top of our health at the same time. Without watching our health, we might never do the things we enjoy. In this topic, we provided a list of ways how to stay on top of your health during the holidays. Let’s dive in!
Delicious foods are always in sight especially on holidays. But be careful, you might get a heartburn as you’re busy devouring that food in front of you. Limiting foods that can cause you heartburn is the best way to prevent heartburn. You can still enjoy your favorite holiday treats but you should also be cautious and consume them moderately. Just take it slow, small bites are enough and don’t overstuff yourself.
When you feel that your stomach can’t take it anymore, take a break. Get up and move around for a few minutes to let the food digest inside before taking another bite.
Holidays can be stressful sometimes. You’re maybe tired moving around, cooking, preparing, and all that stuff. Don’t forget to make time for yourself to de-stress. Stretch that body by doing some yoga, or find your inner peace by doing some meditation. Or maybe ask your partner to massage your neck and shoulders for a few minutes. Take your time to relax to fully prepare your body before the holiday housework begins.
Daily Vitamin Routine
There are times that you forgot to take your vitamins especially in holidays. Don’t let your busy holiday chores make you forget to take your daily vitamins. Our bodies are vulnerable to weird things especially when we are under stress. So it’s very important to take our daily vitamins to help our bodies keep up during the holidays.
Be sure to take multivitamins before you eat. It can help you absorb nutrients better especially when you’re eating a lot of meals during the holidays.
Drink lots of Water
Soda and Wine can never be absent during the holiday season. It’s okay to drink these kinds of beverages but never forget to drink plenty of water too. Always keep a water bottle beside you especially when you’re travelling or just jogging around outside in the cold weather. Water is a life source and it can help you refuel your immune system during those stressful holiday moments.
Plan some winter workouts
Finding time to workout during the busy holidays is so hard. But a simple 15-minute winter walk every time you wake up in the morning will do. You can gather up your family to a stroll down the neighborhood under the soft breeze of winter. Too lazy to go out? You can turn a spare room into a little workout hub filled with yoga mats, some dumbbells and water bottles around. Invite your friends and family to do some workouts before getting stressed when the evening comes.
With New Year fast approaching, it’s the perfect time to create some workout goals. If this is the year where you’re busy being fat, maybe next year is the time where you’re going to be busy building that muscle. Re-evaluate your daily activities, find what’s best for you and what’s not. And time to start shaping up that body.
