So don’t worry we will provide you with great tips on how to stay fit and healthy even during the holiday season.
1. Drink plenty of water.
Everybody knows the importance of drinking lots of water, but how many of us actually drink enough? So here’s a tip, before you eat drink a glass of water. It helps fill your stomach so you don’t end up overeating. And yes, water aids digestion as well and keep you hydrated.
2. Moving is better option.
Walk around the place you’re visiting. Use the stairs instead of taking the elevator. Do something fun that will require movement like playing sports or biking in the park. Most people travel during the holidays. It’s easy to fall on a “lazy mode” when you feel tired due to lack of sleep. Instead of finding excuses to avoid exercise, try other ways of keeping your body active.
3. Workouts are the answer to all your questions.
Everyone deserves to take a rest and relax. If you’re taking a long holiday vacation, prepare your schedule beforehand. You don’t have to perform intense workout. Think of something that you can do indoors such as yoga or planking. Set a daily schedule for 15 to 30 minutes, just enough to keep your muscles stretched and toned.
4. Eat before going to a party.
Fill your stomach with a fiber-rich meal before going to a party. This will keep you from feeling hungry right away as well as prevent you from devouring every delicious food you see at the event.
5. Don’t eat everything you see on the table.
Holiday is usually the time most people can showcase their specialty. Gathering with family and friends could make you want to try out what everyone else has prepared. Depriving yourself isn’t healthy but you don’t have to eat five servings of everything. Just take a bite or two and share the rest with others.
6. Eat salad or fruit.
Replace one regular meal with something light yet filling. Eat fruit slices to fill your body with fiber and avoid getting bloated. You can also have a large bowl of salad before eating anything else.
7. Enjoy your time with family and friends.
Holidays is all about spending time with family and friends . Instead of just sitting around and eating food, talk with your friends or family. So we have have a pro tip for you, It takes up to twenty minutes before the stomach recognizes it’s already full. So by talking, you are giving your stomach enough time to digest your food before you end up overeating. Just make sure you’re not talking while your mouth is full.
8. Bring some healthy snacks.
Instead of loading your cart with carb-loaded treats, fill it with healthy alternatives like vegetables and nuts. Eat any of these in between regular meal hours. It can be tempting to snack on what is available, especially when you are spending the holidays in a hotel. However, you’re well aware that doing that will only fill you up with calories.
9. Dance the night away.
Take a page out of Tina Turner’s book. Don’t just sit on the sidelines get out on the dance floor and show some moves. You’ll burn more calories (up to 250 kcal in 30 minutes) than just sitting, flush the booze and food through your system and release some serious feel-good endorphins.
10. Have a green day.
At least one or two green days during the next few weeks? Everything you eat should be green: kale, greens, spinach, broccoli, avocados, green apples, green juices, etc. Eating green offers a good source of antioxidants and photo-nutrients, boosts your immune system and is low in calories.
