Diwali is just around the corner. Diwali is all about tasty delicacies, social gatherings, shopping, dressing up and more. It is easy to skip that workout session or eat an extra ladoos during the celebrations. But it is equally important to celebrate this festival of lights, prosperity and togetherness without compromising your health in any way. Good health, and happy times go hand-in-hand and your and your family's health should be your topmost priority even during the festive times. We have curated a list of a few easy tips and tricks to follow to have a safe festival and happy holidays.
7 Tips For A Happy And Safe Diwali
1. Follow Your Workout Regime
Do not avoid or miss any of the workout sessions with the excuse of the festivities. Practice your regular workout, go on walks, practice yoga or do any kind of physical exercise. You need to workout regularly and burn some calories after the overdose of sweets and savouries that you tend to overeat at social gatherings during the festival. Also eat a balanced diet with green vegetables and fruit juices.
2. Encourage The Use Of Green Crackers
If you are someone who loves to burst crackers, instead of the regular crackers which cause pollution and degrade the environment, opt for green crackers which are environment-friendly and would not cause you any health problems either.
3. DIY Home Decor
Instead of buying everything which is made from hazardous substances and plastic, encourage the use of environment and health-friendly products like earthen lamps, diyas and organic rangoli. Besides being safer for human health, these are also a great way to bond with family members.
4. Cook Sweets At Home
How about skipping the readymade sweets which we purchase outside full of sugar, calories and other harmful substances and making sweets at home from scratch! This can be a great surprise to your mom. And guess what, you need not limit the intake too much as you made it healthy!
5. Take Extra Care Of Pets
If you have pets at home, you need to be even more careful. They are highly affected by the noise pollution. So keep your pets at home, safe and indoors.
6. Go On A Digital Detox
Festivals and holidays are a great way to go on a digital detox. As there are no zoom meetings or WFH scenarios, you can easily opt out from using the gadgets and instead spend some quality time with your family and friends.
7. Balance Your Meal
Having hearty heavy meals during festivities is very common in Indian households. So it becomes vital to balance out the heavy meals with lighter or liquid diets. Keeping yourself hydrated is also a key to flushing out the toxins from your body. Try to balance the calories intake.
