24: Is there such a thing as ‘balance’ over the holidays?

Regardless of what holiday you celebrate, this time of year is when a lot of us tend to slip off the healthy habits bandwagon. 

For some of us, we fall off the bandwagon and straight into a big blowout full of puddings that leave us feeling pretty average, let’s be honest. And if we’re in the Northern Hemisphere, we’re probably even less inclined to keep working out and eating well because it’s absolutely freezing outside. Staying inside and vegging out sounds a whole lot easier right?

This time of year is great because we can to reconnect with family and friends that we may not have been able to see all year, but it can be hard to balance enjoying their company, while still maintaining your exercise and eating habits.

It’s also hard to explain why you’re not loading up on Christmas cake or casserole like everyone else – especially when you try to tell your friends and family why you’re eating a certain way and they all suddenly turn into expert nutritionists! You know who they are…

And having lived in London for a number of years, I know that getting out to go for a run is pretty much impossible (and also not very appealing) if it’s freezing or snowing where you live.

Maintaining balance can be difficult and I’m sure a lot of you can resonate with trying to juggle this all while still spending quality time with your family.
