So its important to give yourself a health boost as the festivities come to an end. Before anything else, try these three tips to get healthy after the festivities are over.
Our bodies have a natural in-built detox system consisting of the digestive track, urinary system and liver. They all help to process the toxins that are absorbed into our bodies on a daily basis, but after the stresses and strains we put on our bodies over the Christmas period it may need a helping hand in getting back on track.
BOOST YOUR IMMUNITY -
You can increase your immunity through your diet by ensuring that you are eating the right kinds of food. For example, the acidophilus cultures found in many yoghurt-based products promote a strong digestive system. Vitamin C can help keep the immune system healthy, while garlic has antibiotic properties that may help prevent disease. Wholegrains and cereals contain more nutrients than highly processed foods, so try to include plenty of whole-grain bread and fortified cereals in your daily diet. It may also help to include an antioxidant food supplement into your diet.
Are you getting enough sleep? Ensuring that you get eight hours of sleep a night may help fight off colds and flu. According to a recent study in America, insomniacs have fewer infection-fighting cells than people who are well rested. If you have trouble nodding off, ask your chemist for a drug free approach to temporary sleeplessness.
