Christmas is nearly here which means plenty of excitement buzzing in the air. Time off work, catching up with friends and family, festive food and treats not to mention the anticipation of little ones eagerly awaiting the arrival of Santa.
So, what's not to like?
For many Christmas can be a source of stress and leave you feeling frazzled.
High expectations to make everything perfect, not to mention increased workload on top of the normal daily tasks and family dynamics (say no more!). You may also find yourself run down the moment you simply stop!
In this article we give 3 simple tips to try and avoid festive burnout.
Enjoy the festive food and sweet treats in moderation and balance them out with plant of fresh fruit and vegetables. Don't forget to drink plenty of water. Whilst it's not always easy when entertaining or visiting friends and family, try to start the day with a bowl of porridge and fresh fruit. Try to snack on nuts instead of lots of chocolate!
2. Place importance on sleep
Whilst there will be late nights catching up with friends and family, try to set aside time to re-charge and get some solid nights sleep. Make sure you drink plenty of water before bed, especially if you’ve been enjoying a few drinks.
