Staying healthy over the festive season

Christmas is by far and away my favorite time of the year. I love walking around shops with the 
Christmas songs playing everywhere, all the market stalls are set up - it’s just a wonderful time! 
But, the fitness part of me is always a little bit nervous heading into the holiday season. 
There are so many extra calories everywhere, it’s hard to stick to a healthy diet and 
avoid putting on loads of weight.

As a consequence, every new year starts the same; it a fit of despair as you’ve piled on some extra pounds 
and feel bad about yourself. So, you’ll be pleased to know that staying healthy over Christmas is nowhere 
near as hard as you think. With just a few changes to your lifestyle, you can remain in 
good health and avoid gaining too much weight!

Cut down on the alcohol consumption
  I would say alcohol is the main reason people overdo it during the holidays. 
The mulled wine gets brought out, everyone has parties, and you start to drink more in 
the space of two weeks than you did through the rest of the year!
It’s no coincidence that places like the ANA Treatment Center experience spikes in patients 
checking in after Christmas; loads of people drink far too much through the holiday season, 
and it damages them! Aside from carrying loads of empty calories, 
alcohol harms other parts of your body, 
so cut down on it this year. Choose non-alcoholic alternatives - like 
some hot spiced apple drink instead of mulled wine.

Is Christmas Already Getting Too Expensive? Find Out How to Reduce the Cost


 If you would like to impress your friends and family members, and you have already overspent
 for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it might be time to stop and think. 
There are several great ways of making presents look more expensive than they really are,
 and you can pick up some great bargains or customize your gifts, 
so you don’t have to overspend and pay the price later. Find out more below.
 
Save Up Your Points

One of the smart ways people use to reduce the cost of the holiday season is saving up. 
If you haven’t started a saving account yet, chances are that you have several accounts that 
allow you to collect points and discounts. 
If you use them for your present shopping, you will be able to reduce your spendings and use
 your points for presents.
 At the same time, you should check out whether or not any of the retailers offer double 
or triple points on purchases.
 
Look for Multibuy Discounts
If you have a girl squad chances are that buying the same presents for them will be a 
good idea, especially if they like the same things. You can get multibuy discounts on eBay and other sites, 
so you can save on the full price. 
Whether it is cosmetics or jewellery, you can easily track the discount to see if it is worth to buy multiple items.

Obvious Signs Your Girl Squad Is Toxic And What To Do About It?


Being part of a social group is an essential experience for even the most introverted of us, 
however, sometimes we can find ourselves in a friendship cohort that feels as if it's doing 
more harm than good. In fact, such a group can become toxic, 
an experience that is highly unpleasant and that most of us girls have experienced at one time 
or another. 
Happily,  it is possible to navigate the choppy waters of a toxic friend squad, without going under, 
just read on to find out how.


Peer pressure rules

At best peer pressure from a supportive and understanding squad can encourage you to go 
beyond your own, self-imposed limitations and push yourself further than you would on your own. 
Unfortunately, at worst, peer pressure from a toxic friendship group can get into in all sort of trouble,
including creating significant blocks to kicking harmful habits such as 
excessive and problem drinking.

Yes, it can be tough to stand up to a whole group of people that they believe they are right and 
are encouraging you to do what they want. Especially when the habit itself, like drinking alcohol, is 
so widely socially accepted and even encouraged.

Of course, many people's worry here is that they don't want to lose their standing in the group, 
or be made an outsider, something that is actually totally natural, 
as humans are, after all, social creatures. 
However, you can deal with such a situation effectively by setting clear boundaries, 
getting help from a professional like the Stop Drinking Expert, and 
making sure you still put effort into your friendships. 
Albeit, outside of situations where the problem behavior such as 
excessive drinking is the primary goal.

Eating well on a Budget

  Credit

Eating well is an essential part of living a healthy lifestyle. Your diet impacts your physical and 
mental health, your weight, your mood, the appearance of your skin and hair and even your ability to 
get a good night's sleep. 

Eating well is one of the most important things that you can do for yourself and the best way to take care 
of your body and mind. 
Teamed with regular exercise, a healthy diet can make a very real difference to your quality of life, your 
enjoyment of it, and your life expectancy.

But, eating well can be expensive. Supermarkets always seem to have deals on unhealthy meals, 
fast food and sugary snacks.
Even when you eat out, it’s the large, high-fat meals, the big greasy burgers and fries, 
that are cheaper. 

Healthier food always seems to be more expensive. Especially healthy snacks that are less popular with 
consumers. In a time where so many of us are looking for long term secured loans to help us manage our 
finances, eating well can just seem too expensive to be feasible.

It doesn’t have to be, however. You can eat well on a budget. It might just take a little more planning and 
thought. Here are some tips to help you.


Stock Up on Fruit and Veg

Healthy ready to go snacks are more expensive than chocolate bars and crisps. Even with the sugar tax
But, fruit and veg aren’t. Remember, your snacks don’t have to be trendy or cool. Take a banana out with 
you for when you need a pick me up before lunch.

If you do want something more substantial to snack on, like hummus and crudités, make your own
at home instead of buying prepackaged options.

How to break out of Lazy Lifestyle Habits & reach your fitness goals



We all have days when we don’t really want to get active and instead just want to be lazy for most of the 
day.
That’s the way things go sometimes, even if we know it shouldn’t really be that way. However, getting to 
where you want to be and succeeding in your health and fitness goals demands you stop being lazy. 
If it’s happening too often and you want to break out of your lazy ways, here are some ideas to help you.

Start with Small Steps

It all starts with small steps because when you’re being lazy, the desire to do anything is pretty much 
absent. 
But maybe it doesn’t need to be. If you’re willing to go out of your way to take small steps in the right 
direction, such as getting up earlier, walking your dog rather than letting your partner do it or walking 
rather than getting the bus, you’ll soon be on the right track.

Start Your Day Positively and Actively
