The Christmas season is in full swing, and that means plenty of parties, family gatherings and social occasions in general. It's important to enjoy these occasions of course, but moderation should be the goal over the festive period. With that in mind, here are three ways to enjoy your Christmas with a sense of balance and moderation.
1. Ensure you get a few gym sessions in
December can be a quiet month for working out. However, more and more people are recognizing the need for exercise over the Christmas period. It's important that we keep our training ticking over during December, so that we have a good foundation heading into the new year. Believe me, you'll be happy you kept up your exercise when January comes around!
2. Control what you can, when you can
Of course, we don't expect you to be logging your meals into a calorie counter over Christmas but it's good to have some awareness around your food and drink choices. Why not try non-alcoholic beer or prosecco this Christmas? Try to limit the sweets and treats, too. We've all been there, the box of chocolates is passed around and next thing it's empty. Don't fall into that trap. Think moderation. You'll feel a sense of pride knowing you had a plan and stuck to it!
3. Enjoy yourself
This is the time of the year to completely switch off and enjoy good quality time with family and friends. Embrace the Christmas period, nights out, food and drink and enjoy them fully. Just don't go overboard and you'll feel good! Get your morning walks/coffee in, sprinkle a gym session in here and there and drink lots of water. This will go a long way to ensuring your Christmas is both enjoyable and relaxing.
