During the festive season, it usually gets tough to maintain a healthy workout routine. With instant plans to meet relatives and invite friends over for a dinner party, our fitness regime gets disrupted. Since we are already having a lot of fun at this great time of the year, we often tend to overlook our eating habits as well. Oily foods, sweet dishes, chocolates, aerated drinks and snacks welcome our tastebuds with open arms while our senses become too lazy to say no!
Staying fit during the festive season is a real challenge, so let’s go through some ways in which we could maintain a healthy lifestyle at home.
Feeling hungry? Switch to salad
The sudden plans of going out during the festivals while simultaneously maintaining the household chores during a festive season generally become difficult to handle. You also tend to binge on chips and other unhealthy snacks. Instead of eating whatever is feasible at the moment, you must shift your focus towards having an easy to make sesame cucumber salad or a mixed salad during the daytime.
Snack on Nuts
Nuts are very healthy and must be included in your routine diet. You can roast cashews and almonds at your home and sprinkle a pinch of salt to add taste to this healthy snack. Also, if you want to feel satisfied and full between your meals, then adding walnuts to your diet is a must.
Go for a walk
Understandably, finding spare time to go to the gym or do a workout is a little difficult to manage between all those ongoing preparations for the festivals. Also, getting your spirits together to start a workout takes a lot of positivity and energy. So, if you don’t feel like lifting weights or doing rigorous exercises, then you must go for a walk at least. If you are not a morning person, then choose a suitable evening time to enjoy the fresh air while walking freely in a park, enjoying the sunset.
A well-hydrated body is a home to positive thinking and great well-being. Keeping your body hydrated by occasionally drinking fresh fruit juices and water, will help you feel active throughout the day. It will be beneficial if you avoid having caffeine and instead prefer organic green tea.
Inculcating the above habits in your routine will not only help you stay fit during a festive season but will also help you maintain a healthy weight throughout your life.
