We’re right in the midst of the holiday season right now, and even though with everything going on in the world, some of our exploits may be a bit more subdued than in other years, most of us are still intending to make the most of the season and have as much fun as we can.
If you’re planning to party throughout the holidays and New Year celebrations, here are some tips to help you stay healthy during the holiday season:
Maintain a Healthy Diet
Eating a healthy diet is something that we should ideally do all year round for obvious reasons, but during the winter party season, it is even more important as it will give you a good base from which to enjoy your events on.
What constitutes a good diet? One that’s high in fruits, vegetables, and whole foods. You should also eat plenty of protein, and maybe a probiotic yogurt or milk drink as these will help to stabilize your sugar levels and stave off illness as you eat, drink, and be merry.
Practice Mindful Drinking
Mindful drinking may seem a little phony, but it is actually a really good practice that can help you to pace yourself and have fun without drinking do much that you end up with a hangover or drink so much that you end up hurting or embarrassing yourself in some way.
Basically, when it comes to mindful drinking during the holiday season, you should aim to know your limits, pay attention to how you’re feeling, and drink slowly enjoying every sip rather than slamming them down your throat faster than they can be poured.
Up Your Vitamin Intake
If you do end up getting a bit too tipsy during the holiday season, hangover kits that give you a vitamin boost can be a real godsend, boosting your immune system and helping you to feel better almost immediately, which means less time stuck in bed feeling sorry for yourself or recovering on the couch. Vitamin supplements can similarly be sussed but you should probably start taking them well in advance of any events, and continue to do so throughout the winter.
With so many fun events to fit in, it’s easy to let exercise fall by the wayside during the holiday season, but this could be very counterintuitive, You see, the more exercise you do, the better you’ll feel, the better your immune system will be working, and the better you’ll be able to take on the season and all those events with gusto.
Drink Plenty of Water
Staying hydrated during the holiday season will help you to avoid many of the worst consequences of drinking alcohol at all of those parties. If you alternate water with alcohol it will also help to effortlessly limit the amount of alcohol you drink. Your skin will look better in the morning, your head will feel better, and you’ll be happy you had that H20.
Now, all that remains is to pick out your finest party dress and start having some amazing seasonal fun!
