Festive seasons come accompanied with the promise of happiness, celebrations, prosperity, affection and love. However, during this season it becomes extremely important to not over-indulge in sweets, mouth-watering delicacies, and other foods that might affect your health.
Since socializing is unavoidable during the festive season, it becomes important to keep a track of what you eat and keeping things in moderation. Listed below are some of the tips to stay healthy during the festive season.
1) ADD GREENS AND FRUITS IN YOUR DIET
Health experts at AMRI Hospitals advice avoiding fried and oily food and replacing them with fruits and vegetables for keeping your bowel movement smooth and the skin glowing.
2) HYDRATION IS THE KEY
It is important to keep yourself hydrated during the festive season. Drinking water at regular intervals, adding fruits and mint leaves will help you flush out toxins from your system.
3) DON’T INDULGE IN THE SWEET’S AFFAIR
We all know how difficult it is to keep oneself away from delicious sweets but people who suffer from diabetes need to keep a steady check on their dietary chart.
4) AVOID LATE NIGHT EATING
While it is not advised to sleep with a hungry stomach, late night eating is not encouraged either. One must eat at least 2 hours before going to bed, especially when it comes to the high-calorie food during the festive season.
5) START YOUR DAY WITH SOME EXERCISE
To maintain a healthy lifestyle, it is important to relax and ensure regular exercise to help you feel less bloated, state health experts at AMRI Hospitals.
7) KEEP YOUR MIND FRESH
It is a must to keep your mind fresh and avoid thinking about the stressful stuff of your professional life during festive holidays. Enjoy, when it is time to have fun without overthinking about the monotonous things.
8) BEWARE OF YOUR MEDICAL COMPLICATIONS
Festive season may be a perfect time for the foodies to munch onto their favorite delicacies. However, one should also be aware of the long-term implications it can have on your medical condition. So, take precautions and beware of your healthcare issues.
9) MONITORING BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS AND CHOLESTROL
Although it might not be possible to avoid calories, it is important to keep a track on blood sugar levels by avoiding carbs. Using healthier cooking oils help in maintaining the levels of cholesterol.
10) AVOID INACTIVENESS
We all tend to get lazy during the festive season and inactiveness leads to indigestion. So, one cannot undermine the importance of indulging in some physical activities to keep the metabolism going.
AMRI Hospitals’ experts suggest scheduling an early yoga class, going for regular checkups and keeping a track of your eating habits. It isn’t necessary that festive season should come with restrictions, but the key is to maintain a self-care routine and not compromise on your health.
