So many of us are looking forward to the Christmas period, where we get to switch off, have fun and enjoy ourselves. As we reach the end of a long year, it’s easy for us to become burnt out and exhausted. From working to shopping, decorating to socialising, it’s easy for it to take its toll on our bodies.We want to help you beat the festive fatigue and keep your energy and spirits high this Christmas!
Whether it’s a winter walk on a fresh, crisp day, or having a day trip to one of your favourite festive locations, staying active can help you in so many ways. Regular exercise can help fight heart disease and high blood pressure along with managing our weight, but it can also give us more energy. As our days become busier during the Christmas period, it’s important to make time for exercise and keep your energy levels high.
Get lots of sleep
At this time of the year, we have to-do lists, plans, and lots of things to organise to keep things running smoothly. More often than not, this leads us to having a racing mind when we go to bed, no matter how exhausted we are. Hush & Hush MindYourMind helps to relax the body and mind, setting you up for a peaceful, undisturbed sleep. Ingredients including natural soothing agents and time-tested sleep aids, like tryptophan, valerian root, holy basil leaf and magnesium means that you won’t have that groggy feeling in the morning.
Limit caffeine intake
This might be easier said than done, as you might reach for a cup of coffee for a boost of energy to tackle that mid-afternoon slump and beat festive fatigue. While you might get a brief hit of energy, consuming too much coffee can affect your sleep pattern, especially if you drink it close to bed time. Try swapping that second (or third) coffee for a water or herbal tea and you might find you’ll sleep better too.
Keep a healthy diet
You probably already know that a balanced healthy diet can keep you energised and your gut health plays a huge role in this. When your gut flora is out of balance, which can easily happen during stressful times, it can lead to issues including stomach and digestion issues, breakouts and anxiety. Hush & Hush PlantYourDay improves digestion, mental clarity and immunity thanks to organic pumpkin and pea protein, prebiotics and probiotics. Adding it into your diet provides long-lasting energy and a dose of fiber too, helping to beat the festive fatigue.
Dehydration can cause low energy and fatigue. Making sure you’re drinking enough water is a sure-fire way to beat the festive fatigue. Drinking eight 8 glasses of water a day is a great rule of thumb when it comes to staying hydrated. If you’re going to be drinking alcohol over the Christmas period, staying hydrated is even more important for overall health and energy. For perfectly hydrated skin that glows from within SkinCapsule HYDRATE+ hydrates the skin from within for a dewy, plump complexion increasing skin hydration in just 4 weeks, drinking herbal teas is an easy way to increase the hydration levels too throughout the day.
