Survival Party Guide
Never ending work lunches and a gruelling social schedule can leave you a little under the weather at this time of year!
Go Vita has some survival tips that will leave you re-energised and begging for more. Continue reading:
1. Boost your supplement intake
It’s a good idea to boost your vitamin C and B group intake. Not the least because alcohol depletes B group vitamins and vitamin C, but because of their anti-stress, energy boosting, and immune supporting properties. Choose an activated B group supplement so the B vitamins are in a form your body can readily use!
2. Have a daily fresh juice
If you don’t have a juicer, this might be the time to invest in one. A daily fresh juice loaded with vitamins and detoxifying goodies might be just what you need! Combine carrots, apples, celery and ginger to help rehydrate, recharge, detox and calm your system!
3. Support your digestive system
If you suffer from digestive problems at this time of year due to overeating, increased fatty or sugary foods and lack of exercise, then it makes sense at the first sign of digestive unrest to supplement with a digestive enzyme to ensure you digest your food properly and a probiotic to bring your system back into balance.
4. Refresh tired skin
So you think you can keep going into the wee hours of the morning? Well, you probably can but your skin can tell a different story! First of all, make sure you are taking a vitamin C supplement, vitamin C is important for your skin elasticity and to ward off the signs of ageing. For dull and tired looking skin applying jojoba oil every night can give skin a healthy, youthful glow.
5. Have a protein shake or bar before you head out
Protein shakes and bars are a fabulous way to reduce your cravings, not only that having a small shake or bar before you head out for the night is a great way to make sure you stay full until dinner time.
6. Go herbal with your teas
Herbal teas are a great way to keep you hydrated and healthy! Green tea is loaded with antioxidants, chamomile tea helps you relax and turmeric tea, loaded with antioxidants, has the added benefits of being ant-inflammatory, good for your liver, digestion and immunity and what’s more it has a delicious exotic taste!
7. Move on
The fitter, stronger and healthier you are the better you will survive the silly season! So now, more than any other time of the year, regular exercise is important – whether a session at the gym, a yoga class or a game of tennis, make time for it and celebrate your good health.
8. Don’t forget to hydrate
We’ve all heard (and ignored) the brilliant advice to have a glass of water between each alcoholic drink and we know we should gulp down as much water as possible before falling into bed. These recommendations still stand, so plan ahead put a large bottle of purified, alkalised water beside your bed BEFORE you go out!
