If you used to celebrate the New Year’s Eve drinking a lot of alcohol and then you wake up with a hangover and tell yourself that you’ll never drink alcohol again, it is time to start spending the New Year in much healthier way! No matter what people may think, you can really enjoy celebrating the New Year’s Eve and feel healthier the next day. Here are 8 healthy ways on how to celebrate the New Year.
1. Go skiing
Do you want to run away from everything, stay fit and have a perfect New Year’s Eve? Then you should go to a ski resort. Most ski resorts host great parties for New Year’s Eve complete with a tasty buffet dinner and awesome fireworks to assure your night is one to remember. In addition, skiing is an ideal winter activity for burning those extra calories and being in shape, so you can hit the buffet dinner later without feeling of guilt.
2. Throw a pampering party
One of the healthy ways to celebrate the New Year is to throw a pampering party. Rather than having the usual a buffet and drinks, gather all your friends together for a place of pampering. If you can afford, you can hire a massage therapist or mobile beauty to provide some treatments for you and your friends, or buy manicure kits and some face masks. Prepare such healthy snacks as raw vegetable and dips, and serve your friends healthy mocktails and smoothies.
3. Make healthy cocktails
If you can’t imagine the New Year without a drink in hand, you may do it but in the healthiest way by making your own healthy cocktails using juices and fresh fruits and drinking in moderation. Making your own cocktails assure that you get some antioxidants and nutrients with your alcohol. It will also help to slow down your drinking.
4. Watch the sunrise
If you are not going to start the New Year indoors, grab a family member, friends or your partner and go out for an early morning stroll to watch the sunrise. It is not only a perfect early morning exercise, but you start the New Year watching the sunrise with someone special. And it is more inspiring and leads to a healthy new beginning rather than waking up at midday with a terrible hangover!
5. Go dancing
Many people like dancing, and if you love a dance too, why not to celebrate the New Year boogying away all night long? Besides it could help you burn off hundreds of calories and stay fit this New Year. Sure, hitting the dance floor in a bar or club is a great option, but you can also dance at home, if you don’t have enough money.
6. Go for a midnight run
If you like running, why not start this New Year with healthy resolutions? You could join other runners of your city and go for a midnight run through a local park. If you don’t know any runners in your city, you could run at midnight with your family or some friends. It’s one of the healthiest ways to celebrate the New Year!
7. Play board games with your family
