It’s that time of year again!!

It’s hard to believe another year has flown by but I know I’m not mistaken as Christmas songs are playing on the radio and the shops and malls are decorated to the hilt with Christmas glitz

At this time of year it is very easy to find yourself running around searching for presents, attending one event after another, partying, drinking and generally ‘over indulging’.  It’s little wonder that by the time New Year comes around many of us are feeling exhausted, overweight and stressed.

Why not make a commitment to enter the New Year feeling refreshed, energized and slim. It’s not hard to do…..  Below are 4 tips to consider and between now and Christmas day I’ll be adding more  tips.

  1. Exercise – just because it’s the holidays don’t stop your exercise régime.  Staying active
    will help you feel better and help your body rid itself of toxins.
  2. Water – talking of toxins don’t forget to drink plenty of water.  Make sure you drink glass of water for every glass of alcohol you drink; this will help stop your body from dehydrating and assist your liver to process toxins.  If you have had one too many drinks then hold your middle finger to help your liver.
  3. Nutrition – if you find it difficult to say no to the chocolates and other Christmas food, just have a taste……. you don’t have to eat the whole thing.   Limit your portions size.    If you have over taxed your digestive system, hold your thumb as it will assist your stomach deal with the rich food.  Remember,  try to make healthy choices this Christmas by eating more fruit and vegetables
  4. Relaxation/Sleep – Christmas is a great opportunity time to catch up with all your friends and family but it’s also important to take some time out for YOU.
    Get plenty of rest and aim for 7-8 hours of sleep every night.  Your body does its house work during sleep; it cleans, restores and regenerates.  If you party every night and don’t get enough sleep you are not giving your body the opportunity it needs to keep your vitality at its optimum level.   It’s not going to make or break your life if you don’t go to EVERY party.

Above all, don’t be too hard on yourself, take each day as it comes and strive for a
healthier day the next day.

Be Well

JoJo viewed it as disrespectful that he didn’t.' Us Weekly claims that JoJo's family liked both of the finalists, but thought that the man she eventually picks was better suited to her. Favourite from the start: Jordan received the First Impression Rose and his relationship with JoJo has gone from strength to strength ever since Not true: The 27-year-old former quarterback has denied that he cheated on his last girlfriend 'Everyone thought he was husband material,' a source said. 'Later, they told JoJo that they liked the other man too, but they thought the second would be more loyal and a better fit.' And speaking about the family's meeting with the runner-up, the insider revealed: 'After he left, Soraya said she thought he was a player.'

It seems that JoJo did make the right decision however, as she is apparently still very happily engaged to the winner. She likes what she sees: JoJo has also fallen in love with former competitive swimmer Robby, 27 Denying the rumours: Robby has refuted claims that he dumped his girlfriend to appear on the show Former quarterback Jordan, 27, has been a favourite to win the show from night one, when JoJo presented him with the First Impression Rose.

The footballer is estranged from his famous NFL star brother Aaron, whose girlfriend Olivia Munn is close pals with Jordan's ex-girlfriend. Aaron finally addressed his younger brother speaking about their fraught relationship on the show during an interview with WISN on Tuesday. 'As far as those kinds of things go, I've always found that it's a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters, so I'm not going to speak on those things,' he said. 'But I wish him well in the competition.' Meanwhile a friend of Robby's ex-girlfriend Hope Higginbotham has claimed that he dumped her in order to go on The Bachelorette, something which he denied during last week's hometown dates.
