Tips for Easter wellness

Easter is a time when the kids are off school, families get together or go on holiday and consume a lot of sweet treats and chocolate. All of the above are things we love doing but it can be easy to forget about general health and wellbeing in this period. Here's some tips we've put together to help you stay on stop of your health over Easter! 

    • Keep a refillable bottle with you. We're sure if you're reading this then you already are aware of the importance of staying hydrated and already carrying a water bottle with you. When travelling you can get dehydrated quickly due to moving for prolonged periods of times, it can also be easy to forget to drink when being occupied with travel. Keep a water bottle with you for quick and easy hydration, add Hydralyte to your water bottle for even more effective hydration. 
      • Don't overindulge in Chocolate or sweets! They may taste great and there is always an abundance of treats about during Easter meaning it can be very easy to overindulge. Eating chocolate can make you thirsty because of the salt and sugar content. While beer and other drinks have some hydration value, water is a better thirst quencher. The perfect remedy is Hydralyte. 
      • Don’t stay in the sun for prolonged periods of time. If travelling to hotter countries or spending time with family or friends in the spring sunshine you need to be aware of the risks involved in doing so. Whilst getting your daily dose of Vitamin D is great for your health, limiting time in direct sunlight and wearing sunscreen will help protect your skin from damage. hydration also plays a huge role in healthy skin. Staying hydrated will rejuvenate your skin so it looks and feels smooth and soft. This is due to the fact that the outermost layer of the skin has the moisture it needs to flush away toxins and carry nutrients to the skin's cells.
      • Get active with your loved ones! Whilst everyone is together and the spring sunshine is out why not get down to your local park for some exercise, this helps balance out calories from eating Chocolate and your Easter lunch. Be sure to bring plenty of liquids to re-hydrate whilst exercising when you may sweat and lose key electrolytes.
