You might be thinking - what actually is social jet lag? And it's a new theory to us to however boy does it make sense. Let's think about an ordinary weekend... you might go to bed on Friday and Saturday night 3 hours past your usual bed time and sleep in to 'compensate' however come Monday morning your alarm is back to 5:30 am. Your body essentially is reading your weekend as if you travelled time-zones; hence, the term 'social jet lag'. The importance of a regular sleeping pattern and just rest in general is incredibly detrimental to wellness and allowing your body to reset systems. Don't underestimate the power of rest 😴
Everyones goals are different however the underlying result behind this tip is the same for everyone. Endorphins are chemicals released when exercising. They interact with the receptors in your brain that reduce your perception of pain and also trigger a positive feeling in the body. Moving your body over the festive season is a great way to keep up healthy habits and plain and simply; make you feel GOOD. There's actually a tonne of research that indicates smashing yourself in the gym after a huge weekend of booze and rich foods does more harm than good. We recommend low intensity walks, swimming or only exerting yourself to 70% in the gym.
