How to get healthy after the holidays

If you've just come back from holidays, chances are you've indulged in restaurant food and wine, overeaten at the breakfast buffet and possibly had some late nights and less than restful sleep.

While it can be tough to get back into a healthy routine after a lovely hiatus, there are a few non-negotiable strategies that can get you back to a healthy routine quickly.

1. Make yourself a green smoothie or juice daily
Back from a holiday or not, this would be my top tip for anyone wanting to look and feel healthier instantly.

New year, new you (for more than a month)

Did you have New Year's resolutions last year? Can you even remember what they were? If the answers to those two questions were 'yes' and 'no', there's a chance it's because you gave up on your promise to yourself within a matter of weeks. In fact, stats from some surveys suggest that only 4% of people who make a resolution stick with it for the whole year, or reach their goal before the year is out.i For many of those, they were already in the right frame of mind to make a big decision. The timing was just a coincidence.

What makes for a successful resolution?
People who succeed with resolutions have a few things in common. By learning from example and setting yourself up well, you can give yourself a better chance.

First things first: whatever goals you set should be S.M.A.R.T. If you're not already familiar with this acronym, it stands for 'specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, time-bound'. Ideally, 'specific' means something Read more
