Staying healthy and active this festive season

The festive season is upon us and it is important to enjoy this time with your loved ones, but it does not have to mean giving up on your health goals. It’s about balancing enjoying yourself and sticking to your healthy lifestyle.  

Here are five tips to help you have a healthy festive season. 

  • Stay active. Incorporate exercise into your holiday routine. If you are away for the festive season, go for short walks or a quick home workout before everyone wakes up. Opt for active activities and outdoor games with friends or family.
  • Be mindful. Enjoy the festive foods and delicious treats in moderation and stop eating when you are 80% full. If you do overindulge, don’t lose hope – make your next meal healthy and balanced. 
  • Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water, especially with the high summer temperatures and sun exposure, and if you are drinking more sugary or alcoholic beverages.
  • Get plenty of sleep. This will help maintain your energy levels during the day and help manage cravings.
  • The festive season can be stressful, so take the time to manage stress. Make time for activities that help you feel relaxed – reading a book, taking a bath, meditating, or taking a long walk on the beach.
