TIPS FOR A HEALTHY FESTIVE SEASON

Posted by Danny Williams  | 12 Dec 2019

- TIPS FOR A HEALTHY FESTIVE SEASON -

 

With the festive season fast approaching, we know how easy it is for our healthy habits to take a backseat. 

-
With work Christmas parties, endless supply of celebratory drinks & dinners and BBQs on balmy evenings, it’s easy to consume less fruit & vegetables and instead, increase portion sizes, drink more alcohol and put your gym routine on pause. 
With a little planning and creativity you can keep healthy without affecting the waistline nor sacrificing your social life! 
-
Here’s how:-
-
1. Eat more seasonal summer fruits - December is the perfect time to enjoy fresh strawberries, blueberries and a big juicy watermelon! All full of antioxidants. The best part is they are fresh and cheap! Apricots, nectarine, corn, and beans are all on the summer menu!
-
2. Skipped the gym? Replace with an active commute to work- Make the most of the warmer weather, longer days by cycling or walking to work. We are so lucky to live in a beautiful city and the Yarra trail is our local favourite but there are so many hidden bike tracks around Melbourne that most don’t know about. Follow one and you will soon discover! If work is too far and you have to drive, then try stopping and parking 10 mins before you get there and walk the rest. Just that little bit extra into your day makes a world of difference.
-
3. Watch your portion sizes - So hard when your work colleagues are endlessly offering you Christmas cake or there is a beautiful buffet of food at your Christmas lunch. Go for the healthy option first before you decide to load on the more appealing bread & cheeses. If you’re asked to bring something, try making snack bite- sizes, you end up chewing more and feeling fuller quicker. 
-
4. Space your drinks - December can be a hot month (Well, usually in places other than Melbourne!)  it’s important to remain hydrated & alcohol consumption can lead to dehydration. It’s also very high in kilojoules and it’s very easy to consume more than you realise. Alternating one alcoholic beverage with a soda water can do the trick. Also, if you struggle drinking water in general, try adding some fresh fruit pieces to it, to add a beautiful fruit flavour. Eg Strawberries, oranges or lemon can be a tasty touch!
-
5. Lastly, make time for self-care. It’s very easy to be distracted by all the celebrations going on around us, that we often forget to sit and pause and have a moment to just, breathe! Mindfulness, simply just means being present with your thoughts. You don’t necessarily have to sit and meditate to do this. Whatever it may be; painting, having a hot bath, writing in a journal,  dancing in your lounge room or listening to your favourite song, always have 3 mins a day of ‘me time’. 
-
If anyone else has any other tips, we’d love to hear from you.

From everyone at SYO we are wishing you a healthy and safe festive season. If you need a tune-up to keep you going, you can find us OPEN at the clinic over this Christmas period.

Happy Festive Season,

    First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to
    ask if you don't mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself
    and clear your mind before writing. I have had a
    tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts
    out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas
    or tips? Thanks!

    Helpful info. Fortunate me I discovered your web site by accident, and I am stunned why this twist of fate
    didn't happened earlier! I bookmarked it.

    Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My website addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you are interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!
    Fantastic blog by the way!

    There's certainly a lot to find out about this topic.
    I really like all the points you have made.

    I believe everything typed was very reasonable. However, what
    about this? suppose you added a little information? I ain't suggesting your information is not solid., but suppose you added a title that makes people want
    more? I mean TIPS FOR A HEALTHY FESTIVE SEASON - South Yarra Osteopathy is kinda vanilla.

    You should glance at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create post titles to grab viewers interested.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab people excited about
    everything've written. Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.

    Does your website have a contact page? I'm having a tough time locating it
    but, I'd like to send you an email. I've got some recommendations for your blog
    you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to
    seeing it expand over time.
