Christmas is a time to let go of your worries and have a good time with your friends and family. This means eating, drinking and being merry! With that being said it can be hard to stay on track on your fitness and health journey. Being surrounded by your favourite Christmas classics it can take everything you have to resist these temptations. This is why Love Yourself has put together some hacks to allow you to indulge but not overindulge!
If you are going out for dinner, then kickstart your day with a nutritious breakfast in the morning. There is a reason why breakfast is known as the most important meal of the day. Eating a nutritious breakfast will keep your stomach filled throughout the day and can help curb snacking tendencies. Breakfast also balances your blood sugar levels which improve your physical and mental performance and can help you to lose weight.
Love Yourself offers delicious breakfast options delivered to your door so be sure to check out our diet plans. My new personal favourite breakfast from Love Yourself is the coconut pancakes with summer berries.
Did you know staying hydrated can significantly improve your energy levels? This means you can be present and make the most of quality time with your friends and family. Christmas time means the drinks are flowing and the best hangover cure is water! Alcohol is a diuretic which means you go to the bathroom more often which strips your body of key electrolytes. Prevent a hangover altogether by drinking plenty of water before, during and after. When drinking make sure to not skip any meals. Your body needs those nutrients to detoxify all the alcohol from your system.
It feels like we have spent most of this year indoors and in our homes which is why it is especially important that we continue to stay active. Even the commute to work acted as a small form of exercise. Make a new tradition with your family or flatmates to go for a Christmas walk! Get some fresh air and get some steps in. There are plenty of other ways to stay active in these unprecedented times. We have put together some of our favourite ways to stay active in this article, if you are interested in finding out more.
