Our guide to surviving the festive season!
Tis the season to be jolly and the countdown to the big day has begun! For most of us, the month of December is a busy one and it’s likely you’ll be burning the candle at both ends! We’ve all been there…
So with this in mind, we have put together a few tips and tricks to get you through the festive season in one piece!
Rehydrate, rehydrate, rehydrate!
I know, I know… you’ve heard it all before but there is nothing more important than topping up those hydration levels after a big night out. If you can stomach it, try coconut water. It’s a great way to up your potassium levels and replace all those electrolytes you lost throwing shapes on the dance floor at the work Christmas party last night!
The chances are that your work play schedule is of off the scales in the month of December and energy levels are at an all-time low. The answer? Beetroot! Naturally high in nitrates, this purple powerhouse increases our consumption of oxygen improving our overall energy levels. Try Crussh’s Hangover Hero Super Smoothie! It’s the perfect pick me up the morning after the night before.
Walk it off
Nothing beats a brisk winter’s walk to blow away those cobwebs and boost endorphins. Whether it’s a quick lap around the block or a gentle jog in the park, be sure to make the most of the sunlight hours and keep active throughout these dark winter months. A little Vitamin D boost could be exactly what the doctor ordered!
Feeling a bit queasy? For centuries ginger has been used as a natural stomach settling remedy. Promoting the release of certain digestive enzymes, ginger works to neutralize acidity in the stomach. If you’re feeling brave, you can knock back a shot of the healthy stuff! For a more subtle kick, try adding a ginger shot to your favorite tea or coffee!
Get to the root of the problem!
Try Turmeric! This little orange root boasts some powerful anti-inflammatory properties making it the ultimate post-party remedy. Made with a combination of turmeric, apple pear and ginger our Turmeric Tonic makes for a refreshing fix while our Turmeric Latte, made with almond milk and spiced with cinnamon, is the perfect winter warmer on frosty morning!
