- Don’t eat too much!
It’s all too easy for Xmas to stretch from the day schools break up to the day kids return to school. Limit your celebratory days to the traditional Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
- Do something active every day…..
or allow yourself just Xmas Day off. Walking, cycling, or jogging all count if your exercise class or sports club are closed.
3.Processed or salty food will make you feel sluggish.
Stick to fresh fruit and vegetables to keep your energy levels high.
4.Keep up your water intake.
Over-indulging in tea, coffee, fizzy drinks and alcohol wont help your body work at its best.
5.Watch out for the alcohol.
Many teens try alcohol for the first time over Xmas. Make sure they know all the facts and drink sensibly. You can’t make all their decisions for them but you can keep them informed.
