Woman & Home: Celebrate & Stay Well
Stay Healthy Throughout Winter
With Christmas just around the corner, Woman & Home look at how to stay healthy over the festive period.
Dr Ross Perry was invited to give expert advice on key issues which can affect health over Christmas:
- Drinking – without hangovers
- Eating – and avoiding a dodgy tummy
- Avoiding A&E
- Hosting – and avoiding tension headaches
- Preparing a party – and avoiding a cold
Drink… but dodge the hangover
As Woman & Home state,
“We all know the best hangover cure is not to drink too much in the first place, but even the most virtuous of us can unintentionally overdo it.”
Dr Ross Perry offered his expert advice:
“Pace yourself. Set a limit and don’t be swayed by encouragements to drink more. Choose long-lasting drinks, alternate alcohol with water and make sure you eat something.”
Eat… but avoid that dodgy tum
Dr Ross Perry says:
“Indigestion is one of the most common problems around Christmas. Try to avoid rich, fatty foods and watch your portion sizes. Skipping a starter or dessert can be another good way to reduce overall consumption. If you’re at a buffet, pile your plate with salad first – and only go up once.
Be the hostess with the mostest… but avoid tension headaches
Dr Perry says:
“Try to minimise the build-up of stress by planning ahead and delegating to friends and family.”
He also advises that the main culprit of headaches is simply dehydration from being out of normal routine. He suggests getting into the simple habit of having a glass of water every time you fill the kettle or go to the fridge.
Prepare & party… but don’t come down with a cold
Stress and busyness can lower immunity, making you more susceptible to a cold. Dr Ross Perry says:
“Protect yourself by washing your hands more regularly – especially if you live with or work with someone with a cold. Build up your body’s natural resistance with a healthy diet including vitamin C-rich fruit and vegetables. And ensure you’re getting enough sleep – nature’s natural healer.”
