But there is an easier way! It turns out you can eat, drink, and be merry at Christmas without sudden and inevitable bloating and unattainable New Year’s resolutions as a result of Yuletide guilt. There are plenty of ways of sneaking some healthiness into your life at Christmas, and the kicker is that you’re probably already doing them anyway.
Obviously. But think seasonal! There is no better way to stave off illness than getting down with the December foods. I’m talking leeks, potatoes, parsnips, and then enemy of children and adults alike – Brussels sprouts. Granted, they taste slightly like unhappiness, but they’re packed with vitamins C and K, with a host of other nutrients. Plus, they’re not so bad with chestnuts and bacon.
No, unfortunately this isn’t me actively encouraging you to get wrecked as often as possible. Drink water a-plenty! It’s a cliché, but your skin, weight, and energy levels will thank you for it. What’s the point in getting all excited for Christmas when you can’t enjoy it properly because you’re not feeling 100%? That’s not what watching Christmas specials with a belly full of turkey is all about!
And what makes us feel merry at Christmas? Presents! It’s time to hit the shops and get your cardio on. Not only does it make you seem ultra generous (and will hopefully be reciprocated), but it’s a total exercise routine. And the more presents you buy, the more of a work out it’ll be! So this year dig deep, get that tonne of bricks you’ve been meaning to buy for Auntie Joan. Your toned arms will thank you for it.
