December can be a busy month, but Aqua Optima have come up with an essential guide to maintain a healthy lifestyle over the festive period.
Keep attending your local parkrun
In America they have the ‘Turkey Trot’ on Thanksgiving, so why not make parkrun your new Christmas tradition? With recent studies indicating that any amount of running is good for your health*, taking part in parkrun is a great way to keep up some regular activity. Whether you walk, jog, run or volunteer, it will leave you feeling refreshed and energised over Christmas. With more than 600 events in the UK alone, why not try to visit some new places and make it a fun day out with the family.
Drink plenty of water
Water is essential for maintaining your health and fitness. Taking on plenty of water during the festive period is essential, but also between each alcoholic beverage is a great technique to ensure you keep hydrated. Try making your glass of water more exciting with Aqua Optima’s lumi chiller, a compact and stylish filtered water chiller, giving you freshly chilled water at the touch of a button. Why not add some slices of your favourite fruits to give some extra flavour?
Christmas is, after all, a time to enjoy with family and friends. While it’s important to eat healthily, stay hydrated and keep active, it is essential to maintain a good balance. Be sure to take time to celebrate and get into the Christmas spirit!
