Catch up on those lost Z’s

Following on from a late night out, make sure that you make up for lost sleep by having a long lie, or having that unheard of early night! A 20-minute nap can work wonders for the body and mind.

Walk off the blues

Getting out and about in the fresh air is the perfect cure for any late nights or overindulging as you will feel revitalised by the cold winter air. With so many brilliant walking routes in and around Aberdeen you will be spoilt for choice.

Get active!

Heading down to the gym or booking into a fitness class may by the last thing on your mind after your evenings of festive fun, but getting active and doing some exercise can really give you a mental and physical boost. Go to a class, do your favourite gym routine, jog or go for a walk. This will release endorphins helping you to banish the blues. Why not try out Floatfit, a fun filled 30 minute fitness class on water! Read our tips on how to get the most out of your session.

Make sure to drink lots of water

Make sure to drink plenty of water following a late night of festive fun. If you struggle to drink the recommended daily amount of water, then why not add lemon, cucumber or even your favourite fruit to mix up your liquid intake.

Don’t forget the most important meal of the day!
