Otros idiomas: Español Français Deutsch Italiano

We have already talked on several occasions about the return to routine and how to adopt healthier habits, in this case we tell you what are the keys to recover the routine after the Christmas holidays. At the beginning of a new year we all set new goals and challenges to meet, whether related to personal, family, work, new projects, and of course, health. In addition, the excesses in food and increased sedentary lifestyle during the Christmas season make us consider resuming a more active and healthy life at the beginning of the year.

Re-establishing the eating routine

One of the most important points is food. It is the basis of our life and is responsible for providing energy and nutrients to our bodies. A healthy diet is a fundamental pillar for good health and disease prevention. Where do we come from? From a time when we tend to over-consume saturated fats, salt and sugars, probably accompanied by a low level of physical activity. This makes us feel heavier, fatigued and less encouraged to face the routine. How to deal with it? Recovering the daily food routine: balanced, varied and satisfactory. We give you some tips to carry it out.

Practice the “Mediterranean Diet”.

One of the healthiest diets catalogued by the WHO. The Mediterranean diet is much more than a dietary pattern, over the years it has become a healthy lifestyle highly recommended by medical experts around the world. Its DNA includes recipes, ways of cooking, local products and other healthy habits such as the siesta or the sociable nature of individuals to share meals or dinners. Some of the health benefits include lowering cholesterol levels, preventing obesity and overweight, regulating intestinal transit, the antioxidant effect and promoting quality of life.

The detox

As we have said, after living periods of excesses such as summer vacations, Christmas, etc., we tend to increase the consumption of less healthy foods and sugars. Detox recipes will help our body to eliminate these toxicities acquired and accumulated in the body. Regarding the “detox” concept, many doubts arise.
