Healthy Holiday Tips
Summer time in the magnificent shores of Gold Coast coincides well with the Christmas holidays. As the yuletide season brings a lot of feasts and celebrations, we at Pacific Plaza Holiday Apartments constantly reminds everyone to be a bit mindful of our health and proper diet especially during this festive warm season. Our gracious staffs at our premium Surfers Paradise beachfront accommodation have compiled a few simple healthy diet tips to keep you fit and fab all throughout the season:
Since our body easily gets dehydrated especially during the Christmas summer, it is essential to drink as much water as you could to avoid further dehydration and sunstroke. Moreover, vacationers at our cosy yet cheap accommodation Surfers Paradise who are planning to go outdoors should always maintain in a good supply of bottled water to get keep you hydrated.
Say no to chilled drinks
Tempting as it may be, chilled drinks on a hot Christmas summer is never an advisable way to cool down. Most health experts recommend not to take-in cold drinks because it tends to slightly constrict the blood vessels in your skin that hinders the release of body heat.
Adding in more fresh vegetables and fruits on your diet is always the best way to go if you wish to cut down your weight plus of course you also benefit from its exceptional nutritional value. We also often remind our holiday makers at Gold Coast family accommodation not to over indulge on fatty and salty foods especially this Christmas season. Always keep a good and balanced diet.
If you’re serious about cutting down your weight especially during the Christmas break it is best that you avoid taking in alcohol, caffeinated and carbonated drinks but instead drink fresh fruit juices. Fruits and veggie juices not only provide fibre for your diet but also help you replenish essential nutrients that you need for a healthy body.
Fruits of the season
Since it is a summery Christmas here in Gold Coast, we advice our vacationers at our Surfers Paradise apartments to avoid winter veggies and fruits such as beetroot, radish, spinach, pineapple and grapefruit. Instead pick the fruits and vegetables of the season such as water melon, oranges, cucumber, celery and tomatoes which can help in hydrating your body during the warm and sunny Christmas.
Christmas maybe a time of celebrations and feasts, it is still best to remind ourselves to make healthy food choices to avoid the excess weight you may incur after the New Year. Aside from a good diet, it is also best to keep an active lifestyle. While vacationing at our cosy yet cheap apartments Surfers Paradise, you can throw in a few laps at the swimming pool or better yet take early morning jogs by the long stretch of shorelines of Gold Coast. Remember that good health and well-being is the best gift you can give to yourself this Christmas.
