How to retain health during Diwali Festivities?

15 Nov

Diwali is just around the corner. The weather has changed from humid to cold and breezy. The lights are about to come out to brighten up your mood. It’s the time to show off the perfect dress code earned after working hard for the entire year.

Diwali is a unique festival across the world. A festival that spreads the message of unity and brotherhood amidst a lot of celebration. Celebrations include bursting crackers, visiting family and friends, and gorging lot of sweets. From the long list of visiting friends to the limitless munching of snacks and sweets, Diwali is definitely the time when you lose track of your eating and fitness habits.

So, we have prepared a list of definite ways to retain health this Diwali…

  • Eat healthy food

Replace fatty foods, ghee-laden sweets and fried stuff with fruits and low-calorie sweets. Avoid eating sweets coated with silver foil. The foil is often adulterated with aluminum. It is dangerous for your body.

  • Stay hydrated always

Keep yourself hydrated. It is considered as the best and effective way to prevent during and after festival health problems. Staying hydrated refines your body, helps satisfy hunger pangs, and removes waste.

  • Avoid synthetic sweets

Avoid eating artificial sweeteners. They contain aspartame.  Aspartame is reported to cause brain tumor or cancer. Preservatives increase the risk of damage to kidney or liver. This Diwali, opt for sweets made from sugar or jaggery.

  • Say no to alcohol

No matter what the celebration time calls for, but you should say a big NO to alcohol. Alcohol causes dehydration which can cause other health issues. Sip on fresh fruit juices and soups.

  • No crackers

Although doing this will be difficult for most of you but it is better to enjoy the festivities without the noise and air pollution caused by crackers.

  • First Aid kit

Always keep a First-Aid kit handy because there are chances of health issues while lighting crackers or some other health issues. We recommended keeping a First-Aid kit that includes inhalers, eye drops, antacids, cough drops, skin cream etc.

Finally, you must try and stick to your normal routine as far as possible. Your health and fitness is a very important part of your life and you should never compromise on it for anything. The above tips are simple and doable and we are sure they will help you maintain your health.
