JEMMA’S TIPS TO STAY HEALTHY & FIT THIS HOLIDAY SEASONBlue Wall 2
Stay consistent

“Stay active and consistent throughout winter to beat those seasonal blues and feel on top of the world!  Go out frequently for a jog or a brisk walk to release those feel good hormones and endorphins.”

DRINK GREEN TEA

 “You’re body’s chemical switch has flipped to storing more fat during winter. Help your body burn fat and increase your intake of antioxidants by drinking 2 cups of green tea a day.”

EAT YOUR CARBS

“Good carbs that is!  Shorter days and less sunlight means our serotonin levels drop. Keep them and your mood topped up by eating wholesome carbs like sweet potatoes and oats.”Jemma Quote

DO HIIT SESSIONS

High Intensity Interval Training is a great way to stay on track of your fitness.  It can be done at home or whilst away on holiday, AND it keeps your body burning calories even after the workout. Try doing Squats, Push Ups and Jumping Jacks for 45 secs, 15 secs of rest and repeat 5 times.”

EAT SOUP

“Warm up with a hot bowl of homemade soup. Increase your nutrient intake by adding lots of vegetables into your soup and help keep sickness at bay.”

DRINK LOTS OF WATER

“Keep your skin and body hydrated. Help your body function to its full potential by drinking at least two litres of water a day.  Water is vital for multiple bodily functions including aiding in processing and transport of nutrients as well as helping in digestion.”
