It’s hard to enjoy responsibly in general, let alone during this festive season. Here’s some quick tips:
- Avoid sugars and simple carbs
Sugary drinks, alcohol, white rice and various cookies/snacks. You probably can’t avoid them completely, but do cut down on these. Festive season or not, our bodies are not made to metabolise the amount simple sugars we consume in modern, abundant times. Hence our country’s high rate of obesity that leads to various life-long diseases.
- Stop before you’re full
Feeling full? You’ve probably gone too far already. Enjoy with moderation!
- Keep your sleeping hours consistent
Staying out later than usual may be unavoidable, but it may also mess up with your circadian rhythm which could make you have unusual cravings.
If you’re used to working out regularly, don’t let the festivities stop you entirely. Do a shorter exercise if you have to, just so your body isn’t shocked into pure complacency.
- Everything is getting too much? Including ‘inquisitive’ relatives
Take a few deep breaths.
