1. Fitness First!
Yes, these days are extremely tiring, and we all are super busy. But it is very important that you do not deviate too much from your fitness routine. Whatever floats your boat, yoga, Pilates, kickboxing; make sure you squeeze in some of it as per your routine.
2. Hit the sweet spots without guilt…
You can be rest assured; there will be sweets, tons of them. From every possible corner and direction, all aimed towards your mouth. Everyone will try to take a shot at stuffing your face with sweets. Seeing people’s sentiments are involved, you will not be able to say no. Therefore, indulge! Just don’t overeat.
3. Food Fantasies
When celebrating out in the streets with friends all day and all night, you will eat out, a lot. And roadside eateries will be more than happy to cater to your every need! Limit deep fried food, though. Try to go for food that is easy to digest, like dumplings, shakes, soups etc. End your meal with a pinch of Ajwain if you feel bloated. Pure Nutrition’s Apple Cider Vinegar Plus will enhance the health of your system. Make it your go-to choice for maintaining your metabolism during this season.
4. Fruits will save the day!
There is a reason the festive season involves a lot of fruits. Fruits hydrate you; provide you with all the necessary nutrients without loading you up with pot loads of unwanted junk. That is precisely why our ancestors decided to offer fruits to the Gods. Don’t feel ashamed when taking a handful of fruits for Prasad. They will literally save you today!
5. Clean’em up!
When it comes to maintaining a good health, hygiene should never be underestimated. You will eat out a lot, probably in the streets. Carry a small bottle of hand sanitizer wherever you travel for a quick waterless cleaning before you eat anything. You really do not want to get infected and spoil all your fun.
6. A Bar of Protein
Emergency protein bars, in small packs can be a life saver in emergencies. When you can’t find any decent place to eat, or it’s late at night and the good shops are closed, a protein bar can save you from starving. Always keep a pack with you and snack on!
With all the toxins you will accumulate over these few days, it is important you detoxify your body whenever you get a chance. For starters, have a cup of green tea in the morning with an empty stomach. Wait for an hour, and then have a glass of cranberry juice. The green tea will help flush your system and the Cranberry juice will aid the process even more!
8. Sleep it off!
Late night outings, parties, booze and what not! The only person who will complain is your body! It is very important to get at least 7 hours of sleep per day in between all the fun! You must conserve fuel for the next party, mind you!
9. Stay hydrated!
This is again that time when you make your body do things it simply does not want to do! Eating at odd hours, not getting enough sleep, and travelling all day will drain you. Always carry a water bottle and drink up at regular intervals.
10. The road less taken…
A Big part of feeling Healthy is staying happy. You just cannot be healthy and glow from the inside if you are not a “happy” person. The festive season will give you ample opportunity to be happy and make others happy. Jump on them at the slightest possibility.
