POST CHRISTMAS RECOVERY PLAN
We have reached that time of the year when many of us will have either eaten too much or drunk too much or, in all likelihood, both. Overindulgence is as much a part of the festivities as exchanging presents and we’re all too familiar with the consequences of this excess.
After all the Christmas celebrations our bodies need to relax and unwind. There is only one time of the day when body and mind are both totally relaxed and that is when we are asleep. During sleep your body does most of it’s repair and healing. We need 8 hours sleep to be at our best. So get into your pyjamas and get sleeping, you will feel great the next day.
Increase your intake of vitamin C. This will help clear your skin after all those mince pies and cocktail parties over Christmas. It also helps maintain teeth and bones and aids our absorption of iron. Great sources of vitamin C are strawberries, kiwi fruit, steamed broccoli and oranges.
