• Avoid getting exhausted, sticking to a regular time to rise in the morning and go to bed at night when possible.
• No matter how busy your day is going to be, prioritise some “self-care” time every day ~ however that may look for you; a bath, meditation, journaling, walking your dog, yoga or a daily run.
• Whilst alcohol has become a mainstay of Christmas parties, overconsumption causes many adverse effects, such as worsening depression and adverse effects when mixed with medications. If you do choose to have a tipple, perhaps a large glass of filtered water between drinks.
• Limit your consumption of processed and sugar laden food. Ensure that you are still eating regularly and aiming for 5-7 handfuls of brightly coloured vegetables each day with 1 or 2 serves of fruit, we are so lucky here in Australia with the abundance of beautiful antioxidant rich fruits we have available at this time of the year.
My final tip to you is possibly the one that we find the hardest?
Be kind to yourself.
See you on the other side.
