It’s nothing new, the endless stream of articles, advice and ‘one-week diet plans’ published on and offline. But at this time of year, it seems to be a new level of intense. Well, we’re done with it.
Done with believing.
Done with reading.
Done with even giving them an eye roll.
Christmas, for many, is the time when we gather with friends and family. We celebrate each other and enjoy a drink or two, and a mince pie (or three). Why should we feel guilty for indulging a little?
Of course, eating everything in sight ‘because it’s Christmas’ isn’t the healthiest option. Physical activity and a balanced diet are essential in maintaining good health, but a treat here and there throughout the festive season is nothing to feel guilty about.
In fact, punishing yourself for wanting to enjoy this time of year is probably more detrimental to your health than that glass of Baileys.
