Monitor what you eat
As celebrations are inevitable, eating consciously and mindfully is key to being healthy. Study what is beneficial to eat and know the foods that are with good or bad cholesterol. Always remember to choose what is fresh and organic. And refrain from foods that are greasy, fatty, and sugary.
Do not over indulge
Food is love in the merry season. But too much love can hurt. It’s okay to binge on food for a night but binging for an entire season is a different story. Eating three times a day is good enough. More fruits, vegetables, and lean meat should be on the menu. Eating right is not that complicated at all. Focusing on variety, choosing lean meat, avoiding added sugars is a start.
Move your body
Now is the time to get moving. Pick a workout and start the sweat. Refrain from sitting all day for too much is bad for the physical and mental health. Do sports, jog, dance, or do anything that keeps the heart pumping. Being physically active isn’t just for a healthy body, it is for a brighter life. After all, it’s the season to be jolly, not lazy.
