Ways to stay healthy during the ‘ber’ months


    The “Ber” Months are here! And for Filipinos, it only means that the holiday season is just around the corner. By tradition, most of us are starting to plan the parties and family get-togethers to celebrate it. After all, Christmas is a time for presents, eating, drinking, and being merry. For many, however, Christmas is a time when healthy habits go out the window.

    According to the study of The New England Journal of Medicine, people around the globe tend to gain weight during the holidays. The study showed that the people gained weight by 0.5% during the days after Christmas. The bad news is that it can take months to shave the holiday weight gain. And we all know what can happen if we don’t lose the excess weight.

    To help you stay healthy during the holidays, Beko Philippines, Europe’s leading brand of home appliances, listed 3 simple ways and tips on staying healthy and fit throughout the ‘ber’ months.

    Monitor what you eat. As celebrations are inevitable, eating consciously and mindfully is key to being healthy. Study what is beneficial to eat and know the foods that are with good or bad cholesterol. Always remember to choose what is fresh and organic. And refrain from foods that are greasy, fatty, and sugary.

    Do not overindulge. Food is love in the merry season. But too much love can hurt. It’s okay to binge on food for a night but binging for an entire season is a different story. Eating three times a day is good enough. More fruits, vegetables, and lean meat should be the menu. Eating right is not that complicated at all. Focusing on variety, choosing lean meat, avoiding added sugars is a start.

    Move your body. If you haven’t started yet then now is the time to get moving. Pick yourself a workout and start the sweat. Refrain from sitting all day for too much sitting is bad for your physical and mental health. Do sports, jog, dance, or do anything that keeps the heart pumping. Being physically active isn’t just for a healthy body. It is for a brighter life. After all, it’s the season to be jolly, not lazy.

    Invest in the right appliances. Getting the right appliances can keep you healthy as well.

    The right appliances empower your lifestyle, ease you free from stress and worries. Invest in the right appliances that is not merely a tool but your household partner to daily needs as well.
