All the year peoples wait for the Christmas for a time to indulge so make sure not to overindulge. Health is always an important issue and you can enjoy the Christmas or all the festivals of the season without too much impact on your health. A research showed that average people gain weight during the Christmas and face fatigue problems. Follow our essential health tips in this Christmas to stay healthy.
Keep the focus on fun, not food
Festival means excessive foods and alcohols. So Christmas would be the same at your house. It doesn’t mean you have to focus on food instead of having fun. Get yourself busy in other rituals or fun activities like caroling or tree trimming.
Modify your eating times
Modify your eating times so that they can cop up with your relatives. Wake up later and serve a late breakfast at around 10:30. You can skip lunch and serve dinner at 3 PM. You can have early morning snack to keep your blood sugar steady before your relatives rise and shine. Enjoy 3PM meal and have a small snack at 8.
Don’t sit down all day
Don’t spend all the day at home sitting in front of the TV. Encourage or insist the whole family to get out for a walk at some point after the meal to help digestion. You can do more activity like skating, playing basket balls, footballs or any other outdoor old-fashioned game.
To be specific, most of us go through the whole Christmas without any fruit. You should really feature fruits on the Christmas menu. When overindulging and partying is more important than to get your vitamins and minerals is would be harmful for your health. Make sure to buy some fruits when you shop for Christmas.
Mental stress is the worst thing for human health. Try to keep the sense of humor and if there anything to be tensed solve that out. Don’t forget, Christmas is just one day out of 365 and it isn’t worth stressing over.
Be a careful cook
If you cook Christmas food or dinner by yourself, you should know that the FSA (food standards agency) announced that December is one of the common months when food poisoning is a common issue.
