For those who celebrate Christmas, it is renowned as a time of feasting and indulgence. As delicious as this is, it can leave you feeling a little lethargic and overwhelmed. If you’re looking for a way to feel a little lighter and refreshed, try these tips on how to move and what to eat to see in the new year.

Daily Walk

Walking is great for aiding digestion, so if you’re feeling sluggish make a daily walk a priority. Getting out into the fresh air can also reset your energy levels, helping you to feel more awake even during that mid-afternoon slump. Head out in the early morning to get your day off to a great start, or try an after-lunch walk to aid digestion and get you hungry again for dinner.

Berry Helpers

Make sure you eat a portion of berries daily. These little powerhouses of nutrition contain essential vitamins and antioxidants, so can get you feeling fighting fit quickly after some seasonal indulgence. They can also help with digestion and ease bloating, so try them at breakfast time to start the day on the right note.

Sleep It Off

At this time of year, sleep can be in short supply. As soon as the party invitations and events have lessened, prioritize your sleep. Make sure you’re in bed at a reasonable time, and limit screen time for the hour before you intend to go to bed. To help you relax, try reading, taking a bath, or coloring instead of looking at your phone.

Combatting seasonal sluggishness can be done by following a few simple tips, so try a daily walk, make berries a part of your breakfast, and enjoy your sleep.
