The busiest time of year

“For most people, Christmas is probably their busiest time of year. There’s so much on the list, and it never seems to get any less. Although it’s a time of fun and good cheer, its often a time when people’s health can suffer, as we push our bodies with over-indulging and perhaps less exercise and fresh air.

It’s easy to neglect what’s going on inside you, both physically and mentally. Forgotten when you’re rushing around and concentrating so hard on the external – what to do, where to go, who to see, how to get it all done – we also need to try and find time to look inside and ensure we are taking care of ourselves too.

On the one hand there’s the ‘sympathetic’ part of you – the part that reacts to prepare your body for physical exercise, also known as the ‘fight-or-flight response’. On the reverse, the parasympathetic nervous system will calm the body down and relax it after physical exertion. The point is, you can’t be in fight-or-flight mode all day, its not sustainable (sounds exhausting doesn’t it), so you need to recharge. It can be so beneficial to try and find a few moments of stillness or quiet every day, just to regroup and recharge the brain. Ready for what’s next.

That’s what is one of the best things about Symprove, it’ll be quietly getting to work while you’re doing whatever you’re doing, be it resting or in full action mode. And while you’re working your way through your Christmas dinner, rest assured that Symprove has got your gut covered for the festive season, and beyond”
