The Ber months are here. A series of holidays is approaching. As such, everyone is looking forward to a new year full of blessings and surprises, and the most important things we surely want to receive year after year are blessings of good health and long life.
A healthy lifestyle, however, is both a blessing and a responsibility. Ber months call for various celebrations. But while we’re free to have fun, we should always keep an eye on our health. To our students, parents, and teachers of all ages from Great Christian Academy, here are five simple ways to stay healthy and fit during Ber months and beyond:
Set Fitness Goals With Your Family
Make fitness a priority in your household. There’s nothing like the support of your family and friends, so set your fitness goals with them to feel more motivated. Add physical activities as part of your family routines during Ber months. You can exercise as a group 3 to 5 times a week in your living room, garage, or backyard.
It’s a universal knowledge that one must drink eight to ten glasses of water a day. But this knowledge must always be put into practice. Make sure to drink plenty of water daily. If you want to upgrade the taste of plain water from time to time, try adding a slice of lemon or any water-rich fruit to your drink. Health experts recommend natural juices and eating water-rich food as an occasional alternative to water.
Monitor Your Food Intake
One of your most critical responsibilities during Ber months is to monitor your food intake. You’re free to enjoy your favorite food during the holidays, but be conscious of the amount of food you eat. Only consume the right amount and portion of food every eating session. Enjoy, but don’t overindulge.
Add Healthy Recipes To Your Holiday Menus
A great way to make sure that you and your family are in good shape during Ber months is to introduce healthy recipes to your holiday menus. Healthy yet delicious meals can not only make the holiday season more special, they can also help maintain good health. Why don’t you add vegetables to your pasta recipes or replace sodas with healthy and colorful juices?
The Ber months and the holiday season can be overwhelming, especially to parents who want to prepare the best Christmas and New Year celebrations with their children. The stress we get during Ber months affect both our mental and physical health. It’s important to take a break once in a while. Get plenty of rest, sleep, and ‘me’ time.
