Christmas is just around the corner which will most likely mean lots of festive celebrations until the 1st of January when the diet and Dry January will start again.
We all know the feeling when we can’t really say no to a quick Christmas drink after work or end up cancelling that gym class to do that last bit of Christmas shopping.
December is a time of celebrations and festive cheer, and you’ll most probably want to indulge with mulled wine and hearty meals. It’s likely that you’ll recognise the sluggish feelings and fatigue when you’re trying to juggle celebrating with everybody and end up feeling completely burnt out in January.
To help you get through December, we’ve put together some tips so you can start January 2020 in a healthier and happier mindset.
1. Just say no
It is party season and the build up to Christmas means more invites to parties and drinks than you would normally get but it’s okay to say no. You’ll most likely still have the chance to see your friends or go out for drinks with your colleagues in January.
2. Stay active
Even if you aren’t able to go to the gym as often as you normally would, make sure you still schedule in a gym class a week and treat the class as a diary slot as if you were meeting a friend for dinner. Trust us - you’ll be grateful to be working off the extra calories and for an early night with a fresh mind.
3. Make healthy food choices
