Healthy Living Even In This Yuletide


Florence Uwaeme

Healthy living entails much more than physical well-being. Healthy living has to do with both the physical and mental well being of individuals. In this article, we shall be discussing the physical aspect of healthy living.

It is the yuletide and we all are here for the multiple enjoyment and fun. This period is the time most people eat with reckless abandon. If you are among the fit-fam gang, you will know that moderation is the key to maintaining a healthy living even amidst the variety of delish foods set before you.

If you do not want to come back from the village (for those that travelled) looking like an over-bloated ego, you should, as a matter of necessity, be mindful of your daily consumption of foods that will leave you regretting why you joined in the celebration in the first place. And for those not travelling, help yourself by taking long walks- this is if you don’t have a walk-out routine in a gym already.

Here are simple steps to remain healthy even amidst all the enjoyments.

Take It Easy With Alcoholic Beverages

If you’ve been on a diet, too much alcoholic beverage intake will surely ruin your process. If you must drink alcohol, wine is an acceptable addition to levels beyond the Induction diet. If the wine does not suit your taste, straight liquor such as scotch, rye, vodka, and gin would be appropriate. Alcohol increases appetite. The more of it you consume, the more food you’re likely to consume.

Substitute Driving With Walking

You can do yourself good by trekking to nearby events instead of driving. This will help in exercising all your body parts. This is a good step toward a healthy lifestyle. If you can, you should include jogging in your list.

Avoid Sugary Drinks/Food

Soft drinks and processed fruit juice are one of the major ways to consume more calories than is necessary for a healthy lifestyle. The lesser junk you consume, the easier it is to not add too much flesh; especially around the abdominal region.

Don’t Forget To Drink Water

A well-hydrated body helps in unclogging all the clogged intestine. Instead of that sugary or alcoholic beverage, water is a good substitute.
