SweetEscape is definitely excited for the holiday of exchanging gifts under the Christmas tree. With only a few days away, you're probably preparing yourselves for the festivities that will be coming your way. Especially for those of you escapists who have been following the Christmas tradition, you're probably familiar with seeing that you've gained a couple of pounds on the scale after all of the festivities are through and done. You hate the weight gain, but you just can't resist all the delicious food! Or perhaps you live somewhere without all that freezing snow, but a Christmas celebration is still a mandatory festivity anyway, right? Since you can’t avoid Christmas festivities, we’ve got a list of great ways on how you can stay fit during the holiday of delicious foods and gifts below.

1. Eat Less But More Often - This The Season To Eat

For some reason, it's so much easier to overeat during Christmas time, and you're probably wondering why. Well, If you happen to celebrate Christmas, then perhaps you would be familiar with all of your family members (especially the grandparents) get uber excited for the whole Christmas cooking tradition. It's all great and festive, but too much of anything is never good for your body! So the trick is to simply eat little each time, in order for your tummy to not be overwhelmed by too much food at once.

2. Remember To Stay Active - Indoor Workouts 7 Minutes A Day

It's hard to stay active in the wintertime; it's freezing cold with snow everywhere. But don't let that be your excuse for you to just eat, sleep in and hibernate throughout your Christmas holiday - trust us, you'll regret it afterwards! Who says you can't sit back and enjoy your vacation? You can, just as long as you remember that your body fitness needs to be maintained as well, especially during a time when you'll be eating lots of your grandma's chicken pot pie and delicious strawberry shortcake.

3. Mind Your Booze For a Flatter Tummy

What holiday is fun with no alcohol, right? If you're the typical wine lover who settles for a glass or two per occasion, then you're safe and sound. Unfortunately for those of you who are more into beer or even the hard liquor and whiskey... you should slow it down a couple of levels on the alcohol. If you really must have your booze, remember to drink in moderation to avoid bloating and empty calories from filling your bodies.

4. Remember To Keep Yourself Hydrated - With Water!

Christmas time is certainly the most perfect holiday to be drinking warm cocoa and sweet festive beverages. All that aside, you need to stay hydrated with your main source of life - H20! Drink up that water, while you detox your entire system for a healthier body. Of course you can enjoy other types of beverages, but most importantly, drink lots of water because your body will need it even in the cold winter weather.

5. Lower Your Sugar Intake - Too Much Sugar Drains Your Energy

Have you got a sweet tooth? It's inevitable! From the sweet gingerbread cookies to all the delicious home-baked cakes from your friends and relatives... it's impossible to not fall victim to all of the delicious sweet variations available during the holiday festivities. Do yourself a favor and hold back on the sugar, and we mean it! It might taste good and all for the moment, but when you're old and grey... you'll be thanking yourself for staying away from those sugary sweets when you’re older.
