Silly season is back. And with it comes the usual ‘How to Party Healthy’ tips; have a glass of water between alcoholic drinks, eat a healthy snack before you go out, keep physically active.
Heard it all before? If you’re on websites like this, you probably have. We, and countless other health and wellness articles, blogs, posts and soundbites say it every year.
You probably want to hear something different – but the fact is we say it because it’s valid. Your body needs specific nutrition to thrive and if your silly season is full of salty snacks and alcohol, you’re missing out on essential vitamins as well as key ingredients that can support you in this extra busy time.
Extra. Busy. End of Year deadlines, grabbing gifts, decorating the house / tree / dog, visiting family, triple the social events – these all suck up energy and cut our hours of sleep and then disrupt the sleep we do manage to get. Add to that the stress of all the above, which increases our chance of getting sick – aahh, Make it Stop!
Happily, you don’t have to stop. In fact, grab a shot – just make it a healthy shot.
The extra wellness support you need through the season is easy to find in health shots and tonics. There are plenty of healthy drinks (and snacks) full of delicious, nutritious and natural ingredients to support your body at this time of year.
Red Ginseng provides natural neurological support so can help you focus on the projects you want to finish. In a health tonic like SHŌJŌ, it’s blended with B Vitamins which promote your natural energy, so can help you through the shopping and the socialising. And on those bigger nights, the anti-inflammatory properties of Turmeric can give your liver a little extra love.
The silly season can take a toll on our sleep, combat that with wellness shots full of delicious ingredients like Tart Cherry; its natural melatonin promotes longer and better quality sleep. You can also give your body a fighting chance through December with immune booster shots – look for those with mega doses of Vitamin C to help your body fight viruses and produce antibodies.
So do the things you know to be good; plenty of water, fill up on healthy snacks and throw some physical exercise into your days.
Choose health tonics and healthy snacks to maintain intake of some key essentials and you can make it through to the big day with ease. You know it.
