Lost your sparkle? Are the holidays making you feel beaten down, stressed out and like climbing the walls all at the same time? If you recognize yourself here, we’ve got news: Christmas is stealing your energy and it needs fixing fast!
Partied Too Hearty?
It’s easy to run out of energy over the holidays. Two COVID Christmasses mean that this one feels bigger and more meaningful than usual for many people. A longer list of social engagements than would normally be sensible, Christmas parties (remember those?), excited kids everywhere, rich food and maybe a few more beers or glasses of wine than you usually drink. All of this ends up being paid for – in energy!
Socializing, partying and all the rest of it are energy thieves. Even if you’re the extrovert’s extrovert, everyone’s battery runs down at some point. And when it does, it can be hard to power up again. It’s much easier to just throw yourself onto the nearest couch, watch It’s a Wonderful Life again, eat a few more chocolates and hope that Cherry Truffles actually count as fruit.
Tempting, but if you want to energize yourself, then that’s not going to work. Instead, why not try one of our top three guaranteed instant energy fixes?
It might be a cliché, but fresh air really does wake you up! Whether it’s a walk, a run or a glide on an outside ice rink, do something that raises your heart rate a little, gets your limbs moving and your muscles working!
Don’t use the weather as an excuse for not getting out there – as someone once said, “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing!”
Eat Well for More Energy
Whipped cream, brandy butter, chocolate Yule logs, roast potatoes, gravy… Christmas often means an excess of foods that leave you feeling sluggish. But hey, it’s Christmas, so we’re not going to suggest that you skip the turkey and shun the trimmings. Making a few mindful changes such as adding plenty of vegetables to your plate at every meal, and snacking on fruit and healthful foods really makes a difference to your holiday energy levels. Try these:
- Vegetable sticks and dips are easy to incorporate as a starter or as part of a buffet
- Reach for a piece of fruit sometimes instead of another candy
- Plain, unsalted nuts make a more nutritious snacking option than potato chips
- Drink smoothies that include some healthful, fresh greens and a variety of nutrient-packed, antioxidant-rich fruits
