Take care of yourself with some of these simple yet effective tips:

Remember comfort

Wear comfy shoes, especially if you are on your feet all day. Swap them for joggers while you’re not at work.

Don't just sit there

If your sitting for part of the day, bring a tennis or golf ball along to massage the arches of your feet, keep it cold for added benefit!

Keep moving

If you’re standing or sitting in the same position all day, not only does it impact on your body but your energy can become low too.

No heavy lifting

Make sure you don’t lift things that are too heavy, bend from the knees not the back when lifting all those heavy Christmas decorations.

Stretch it out!

Keep the water intake up- drinking at least 2 litres of water a day and limit the coffee and alcohol when you can.

It's not all about Christmas Dinner

Make sure your eating good quality food, and regularly so that your energy levels don’t slump. When working try to minimise the sugar intake and save that for the special occasions.

Snack Ideas?

Raw nuts, seeds, fresh berries, yoghurt, rice cakes, celery or carrot sticks with peanut butter, tuna and salad.

From all of us in the Essential Health Centre Team, have a happy and safe holiday period!
