Three tips to end the year healthily

Three tips to end the year healthily

Are you planning to stay healthy for the month of December or have you gone off track? Many people begin to feel that there’s no point making any changes now and want to leave it for the New Year.

Do you know that we still have another three weeks left for the end of the year? If you just let go now, it will seem all that much harder when you resume.

I know we’ve come out of lockdown and it’s coming to the Christmas and New Year’s celebrations, so you don’t have to diet but just think of making a few simple changes. And, what I’m sharing can be easily included in your daily life.

Here are three easy tips that will be a great precursor to a healthy New Year:

1) Include some vegetables at lunch and dinner time. This is one food group that I see many people not have enough of. And, you can have these cooked if you don’t feel like having salads or raw vegetables in the winter months. You can make vegetable soups, have roasted or baked vegetables or stir fry and saute them. To make them taste good, add your favourite herbs and spices to them.

2) Drink water and stay hydrated. This is something we forget as we don’t feel as thirsty when it’s cold. Water is essential to have for our health and you can also drink warm water or herbal teas.

3) Stay active by walking. Dress warmly and take your gloves and hat with you when you go for a short brisk walk. Even 10 to 15 minutes is good for your physical and mental health. And, if you are not comfortable going outdoors, you can walk at home.

You don’t need to start a diet or exercise plan, just priortise your health. As you can see these are practical and doable tips, you can definitely do them.
