How to Fight Festive Fatigue

How to Fight Festive Fatigue

The festive period is often a time marked by empty drink glasses, scattered chocolate wrappers, and a desire to avoid facing a full plate of food! Lethargy can set in and motivation wanes meaning many find themselves seeking ways to revive their energy. In this article, we'll explore our tops on overcoming the Christmas slumps and recharging for the year ahead.

Balanced Nutrition

Amidst the array of tempting treats, maintaining some form of balance is key to sustaining energy levels. We're not suggesting you restrict yourself this festive period, but try to incorporate energy-boosting whole foods into your diet where you can. Nuts, seeds, whole grains and lean proteins are great for providing sustained energy release throughout the day. Don't forget those essential micronutrients such as iodine and B-vitamins to help fight fatigue. Getting these in through dietary sources is good, but supplements are important to ensure you are receive the levels your body needs.

Get Moving

Research suggests that exercise or bursts of movement when you have time is great for upping your energy levels and boosting your mood through the release of endorphins. You don't have to get in the gym, quick at home workouts or a brief walk in between the festivities is enough to keep you feeling sprightly. Even when you don't feel like, find 10 minutes to get outside and move your body - you'll thank us later.

Hydration is Key

We're big advocates for ensuring you stay hydrated in amongst the festive celebrations. Keeping a water bottle nearby to track how much water you've drank is the easiest way to stay on top of your daily water intake. Staying hydrated helps your body flush out any toxins and keeps your kidneys working optimally. Getting two litres of water in a day might even help ease the New Year's Day hangover!
