So, here we are, full on Christmas season which in turn means maxed out waistlines and visa cards.

Here are a few mindful tips to get your through the festive period!

Food, glorious food. With so much festive food on offer, try not to overdo it. Once your full, stop! A huge part to eating healthy is planning ahead, obviously you have to enjoy the treats on offers but not getting too carried away with the shiny sweet wrappers and calorie laden sides will make a difference to your waistline come January 1st.

Money matters. With Christmas comes the added pressure of spending, a lot of the time on unnecessary gifts and food. Take a step back this year, see what you really genuinely need to get, make a list and budget and spend within your means; overspending is just going to cause stress you do not need.

No sleep. If you have children, especially small ones, try and keep the same routine you normally have. Keep wake up and bed times as close as possible to the normal ones and getting out and about for some fresh air is always a good thing.

Great Expectations. Let’s be honest, there will be alot of family gathering around the one area at the one time, so don’t expect everything to run picture perfect. Do what you can do and the rest will have to wait.

Drink sensibly.
