MediBuddy

2020 is drawing to a close. It has been a dreadful year for the world. On a personal level, most of us have had to endure some hardship or another. And we will all be glad to leave this year behind us and start 2021 with a lot of fresh hopes. That is why we all deserve to thoroughly enjoy ourselves the last week of 2020. But remember, having fun does not mean that you jeopardize your health.Here are some simple safety tips for Christmas

Maintain COVID safety

In the midst of all the celebrations, don’t drop your guard. The pandemic is very much alive and kicking. Everyone is vulnerable. So don’t throw caution to the wind. Continue wearing your masks like before. Sanitize your hands and avoid large gatherings.

Drink lots of water

Since it’s winter, you probably will not feel very thirsty. That doesn’t mean that your body doesn’t need water. If you are out partying and drinking, it is an imperative that you drink fluids at regular intervals to detoxify yourself.

Keep a tab on sweets

Christmas is the season of fruit cakes and almond cakes. It’s the easiest thing in the world to get addicted to cakes and other desserts and eat an inordinate amount.But sweetened foods are deadly for your body. Cakes, pastries and desserts immediately raise your blood sugar and then very soon afterwards it crashes down. Frequent blood sugar fluctuation is not good for you. People with high blood sugar need to be extra careful because even a few days of careless eating can push them over the edge into diabetes.

Go easy on the savouries as well

Celebration for most of us means binging on our favourite foods with our loved ones. While you should definitely be doing that and we are not being a wet blanket by urging you to refrain from all the junk food, you should exercise moderation.All good things should be enjoyed within certain limits. Greasy foods take a toll on your digestive system and a few days of constant bingeing is very likely to make you ill.

Exercise a bit

Since you will be deviating from your regular routine, your body may be out of sorts during the festive season. You may feel bloated, and gassy. To get your body back on track, don’t skip on the exercise. It will speed up your digestion and make you feel less guilty about all the fast foods you ate last night. Exercise also keeps your lymphatic system going. This system is responsible for removing all the wastes from your body and freeing you from all the toxins. Besides exercise will also pump happiness hormones into your system which will make the festive season even more cheerful for you.So there you go, staying healthy and happy can go hand in hand with mad crazy celebrations! So have fun but be responsible as well.
