IOL – Health – Issue 5 – Relax and Restore


THE year 2020 has been an epic marathon but we are almost at the finish line. The race to December has left many of us exhausted and in need of some real downtime. However, we shouldn’t make too many compromises with our diet, fitness and self-care regime.
For many people, the year came with challenges, grief and pain. But for others 2020 also presented opportunities for growth, development and pushing through boundaries. Whatever the year gave you, you can be proud of how far you’ve come – living through the pandemic was not easy.
As we get closer to the holiday season, we know this year’s festivities won’t be the same as in previous years. Traditions are going to change and safety is going to be a priority for many people who would usually be carefree and throw themselves headfirst into the “silly season”.
With festivities underway, many people will be partying and celebrating. In this health issue, we look at some healthy drinks that can give the buzz you want but with less sugar. We also look at how to recover naturally the following day with some great hangover cures.
We also understand that this time of the year might be a challenge for many who have heightened anxieties. We help you deal with that and offer some practical solutions. One of them is our healthy gift guide list, to help take the stress and strain out of gift buying.
As we unwind, we prioritise the things we have been avoiding the whole year, like cleaning our beauty brushes to pro-level standards to avoid skin irritation.
We’ve also been stuck indoors for too long and in December we can go out and enjoy the sun and outdoor activities with the family. We’ve got you covered with a guide to all your sunscreen needs.
Most of all, let’s use the holiday season to reconnect with family and friends, sit around the braai and share a meal together and appreciate life. Let’s be safe, responsible and be kind to each other – it has been a tough year.
