 Christmas is 3 days away and we are feeling super excited!. We’ve had movie nights,baking sessions, cinema trips out and all the goodies you can imagine :).

One thing I am already feeling is the Christmas slump, the sluggish feeling when you’ve over indulge and just feel yuck.

Now I am all for having a fab Christmas but having the whole Christmas off to just ‘enjoy’ yourself ends up being, eating all the chocolate in sight and feeling like you can’t wait for the new year to come round for your ‘fresh start’, am I right? :) 

 1. Stay hydrated 

First and foremost, stay hydrated!. I have been feeling SO thirsty the last few days and I know it’s because I am eating all the salted crackers and the choccies and I am not hydrating my body.

Waking up in the middle of the night and chugging a glass of water isn’t helping my body, so make sure you are staying on top of your water intake over Christmas. 

2. Meal plan / Prep

Christmas dinner,Boxing Day dinner are a given, we love our Boxing Day dinner with gammon,mash and all the pickles but the days in between we tend to just party food it don’t we?. Get some healthy foods in to avoid the takeaways!.

3. Get moving

I feel like I’ve sat in the same spot for the past week, ha!. Get yourself moving ,even just a five minute yoga YouTube video with the kiddies or a kitchen disco with your favourite Christmas songs :) . I’ve recently got a tredmill that has honestly been a game changer.

 I pop my air pods in and do a 20 minute walk or run to release those feel-good endorphins that improve your mood, especially at this time of year when the dark days can make you feel low.

4. Get out and get exploring

There are lots of free outdoor activities you can do around this time and our local national trust have some lovely walk ways we use.

Stick your wellies on and get some well needed fresh air .

5. Rest!

Sleep!. Sleep is so important and you only have a finite amount of energy, no matter how many glasses of buck fizz you down!. For your mind and body to recover, make sure you get as much sleep and rest as you can.

I hope these help you over the festive few weeks and I wish you all a Merry Christmas..
