Surviving the party season

 Found on playbuzz.com

It's the most wonderful time of the year. Celebrations are in full swing which means carefree overindulging, alcohol, late nights and hangovers. Your body takes a beating during this festive time, so to ensure you are at your best here are my top tips to get you through the party season.

  1. Water - drink more water. The extra sugar, heat and booze will make you lose a lot more water than usual. Make sure you're having a glass of water between drinks and drinking more water the following day to top up your water levels. Remember thirst is the last sign of dehydration so drink up before your body tells you to. On the nights/days where you are drinking make sure you're proactive and drink lots of water leading up to the event.
  2. Make healthy choices - just because it's the silly season, it doesn't mean that you can forget about everything you've been working towards the whole year. Be conscious with your food choices when eating out. While it is not always possible to eat perfectly, try top opt for the healthier canapes and meals. Avoid overeating. Just because that nice lady with the tray keeps buzzing around you, it doesn't mean you have to eat everything she is offering. Try to eat something healthy before you go out, this will minimise the risk of you overeating unhealthier options because you are ravenous.
  3. Schedule in some booze free time - look at your party schedule and try to clock in some booze free time in between commitments. This means no sneaky wine with your dinner. Your body will thank you!
  4. Eat more greens - help your body do what it does best by giving it more of the right foods to help restore and detox the body. Think of dark leafy greens as the clean up crew after a big night out. Get more in by drinking cold pressed green juices made fresh with lots of leafy green goodness as well as smoothies and leafy salads. If you can't get enough real greens, try a powder super greens supplement.
  5. Lemons aren't just for tequila - start each day with juice of 1/2 lemon in warm water. This is a great way to kick start your metabolism, alkalise the body and help get the detox process going.
  6. Sleep - your body does its best restoration when you're asleep so make sure you prioritise your beauty sleep.
  7. Sweat it out - try to clock in some time on the dance floor, no matter how special your dance moves are.  Sweating is the best way to rid your body of nasty toxins.
  8. Be kind - remember this is a happy time so learn to find forgiveness and compassion for everyone around you including yourself.
  9. Make time to exercise - the best way to get rid of a hangover is to sweat it out so try to do a workout the day after to help your body re-energise and get back on track. Opt for short and sharp workouts like HIIT, 100m sprints, stair climbs or swimming. Make sure you stay hydrated and drink plenty of water afterwards.
  10. Avoid low fat foods - avoid anything that says low fat. Low fat means high sugar which will spike your blood sugar levels and actually make your body make more fat. Good fats will fill you up more meaning you'll actually eat less.
