The silly season is upon us and everywhere I look the tables are full of temptations. Between all of the end of year birthdays, work breakups and family Christmas parties it can become a little overwhelming. Then there is New Years to contend with. So here are seven ways to ditch overindulgence.
Eat a good breakfast
Having a full stomach means you will be less likely to snack on some not so healthy options. My breakfast protein mug is the perfect breakfast to keep you fuller for longer.
Drink plenty of water
Keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water. It can help minimise a hangover and can also help you feel fuller, without the boat from soft drinks.
Minimise alcohol and soft drink
Soft drinks can just add to the bloating you may already feel after a large meal, so stick to water.
Sharing is caring
Sharing really is caring. It’s also great because you know exactly what went into it because you made it. Healthy festive bark always goes down a treat.
A spot of tea
Many different teas are known for aiding in digestion. Peppermint is my favourite and green tea is also another favourite.
Walk it off
Getting your body moving after a big meal can also help digestion along, and remove that ‘too full’ feeling.
Know that it is only temporary
The silly season will be over before you know it. You will be writing out your goals for the new year and this will all be a thing of the past.
