SCHILLER Australia's Top Tips for Surviving the Silly Season

Christmas: A time of the year filled with eating too much and drinking even more. Also known as the time of the year most dreaded by our hearts and our bodies in general. As lovers of all things heart and health related, SCHILLER Australia has decided to put together a little list of tips to help you survive your silly season happily AND healthily:

  1. Don’t ditch exercise

    We give you permission to kind of ditch it, but not completely. And by that we mean, you don’t have to hit the gym for 3 hours on Christmas Day, but consider taking your dog for a short stroll at some point during the day. Your pooch will think all their Christmases have come at once (that’s the one time we have actually used that saying appropriately), you’ll get some fresh air and quiet time, AND your heart will thank you for itl! Now that’s a win win!

    TIP: Walk the pooch for some light exercise and a breath of fresh air.

  2. Go easy on the alcohol

    We have a reason for giving out such Grinchy advice, and that is: Alcohol is loaded with sugar and empty calories. We know it’s easier said than done - especially considering we have all had a huge year worth celebrating, but just think twice before you suddenly find yourself a bottle deep and facing a downward spiral of disaster and a two day hangover.

    TIP: Add in a mineral water between each alcoholic drink in order to pace yourself and steer clear of that next-day headache.

  3. Eat before you party

    This one sounds like a no-brainer, but hear us out! If you’re heading out to gather with friends and you know there is only going to be naughty nibblies to snack on rather than a wholesome meal, eat before you go. It doesn’t have to be a gourmet meal, but so long as you aren’t starving once you arrive at your get together you’ll save your stomach at least 5 party pies (now that’s science!).

    TIP: Fill up on a wholesome meal before arriving at that nibbly-frenzy party you are planning on attending.

  4. Don’t deprive yourself

    If you try and stick to a strict diet over the holiday period, depriving yourself will just lead to disappointment and shame-filled bingeing on the good stuff when no-one else is watching (or so we have heard). After all, Christmas isn’t known as the most wonderful time of the year for nothing! You know the difference between what’s healthy and what’s not, so make the majority of the foods you indulge in the healthy kind and just have a little bit of everything else - moderation is key.

    TIP: Don’t be so strict, let your hair down, and remember ‘everything in moderation’.

So there you have it, a little list to live by this Christmas! We hope you have a very merry one and a safe and enjoyable New Year as well - perhaps this list can guide you into 2018 and help it be one of your healthiest and happiest years to date. Here’s to hoping, from the entire team at SCHILLER Australia.

Best wishes!
