Celebrations are always happy moments during which it is easy to slip up on healthy living and indulge in things that are bad for your health.
But, good health is always important, no matter where you are or what you’re doing. Maintaining good health doesn’t necessarily mean you should miss out on having fun, though. So, what are things to look out for so you can have fun during Easter while staying healthy?
- Your day should begin with exercises
Easter celebrations are often filled with fun and you might be forgiven for worrying less about weight or calories. A good way to strike a balance therefore is to have early morning exercises. An early morning jog around your neighborhood is good enough to keep fit and burn off excess energy.
Early morning exercises also help to refresh and energize the body. Compared to the sluggishness you’d feel on mornings after a stressful night, the extra energy pumps your blood and makes you feel ready for the day.
- Breakfast is important!
Don’t get carried away with the fun and skip breakfast. A nice, nutritious breakfast is important for you to stay healthy. It doesn’t have to be heavy food. Lightweights like toast, pancakes, veggies, fruits are great.
Moreover, having good food in the morning is better than consuming unhealthy snacks indiscriminately. Eat whatever your taste buds fancy, but make sure your breakfast is nutritious.
- Be attentive: don’t lose track of what you consume
Easter chocolates and turkeys are tasty and tempting. But, watch how much junk food you consume, especially if you’re allergic to certain foods. If you don’t know what your food allergies are, it’s best to be cautious with what you eat.
By the way, no matter how careful you are, mistakes can still occur, so if you discover that your body is reacting violently to something you ate, make your way to a clinic immediately for some food allergy treatment.
Above all, be disciplined. Food is great, but too much of it is bad for you. Eat your food in small bites and moderate sizes. Set boundaries for yourself if you have to. For instance, 3 ice cream cones max per day. Stay true to them.
- Fruits are a great alternative to junk food
This is a good alternative to snacking on junk food. If you’ve decided to have a fixed quantity of junk food each week, stocking up on fruits is a nice way of escaping the temptation of breaking the limits. Instead of having one more bar of chocolate, how about an apple?
Also, don’t forget to stock up on the right quantity. Get fruits you can finish within days, and restock regularly. Fruits are better when they’re fresh.
- The sun is good for you!
Don’t spend all your time in your room. Step out into the sun! Seeing as the season is a good one to enjoy, you can go outside and have fun with your family in your backyard, or at the park closest to you. If you’re with your family, you can spice it up by playing games that may or may not require too much of your physical strength.
- Cleanliness is paramount
Cleanliness cannot be overemphasized, especially if you’re spending Easter with your loved ones. You can stay clean by:
- Having a shower immediately you get back from an outing to get rid of all the sweat
- Washing your hands with soap and water after using the toilet
- Flushing the toilet properly after use
- Disposing waste properly
- Rinsing your fruits and vegetables properly before consumption
