Partying can easily be fitted into your healthy lifestyle. Matter a fact, it can actually help you improve your healthy lifestyle. Partying doesn’t necessarily mean going out, drinking a lot, and doing crazy things. You can have a good night out with friends at club while also maintain a healthy lifestyle.
We all need to party
We all need a night or two out with friends whether it is bar/club hopping or just at a house party. You work your butt off all week at work, working out, eating healthy, and so on. You can have a night or two in the week where you go out and have a little fun, you deserve that much. The time out with friends partying allows you to bring a change to your daily routine and also allows you to have some fun.
Why is partying considered bad?
Partying isn’t all good. There are some disadvantages to it:
Drinks: Alcohol tends to be heavily associated with partying. When you party you are highly likely to consume more than just one or two can of beer or any other type of alcohol. Partying tends to lead to excessive drinking which is of course bad for your body and health. Not only have that once intoxicated you ended up doing more harm than good.
Snacking: To help us chug all that alcohol down we resort to unhealthy snacks to munch on. The more you drink the more you snack, this can lead to you taking in more calories than you normally would consume.
While these two things can be a major disadvantage to partying, you can control them both. If you control excessive drinking you will automatically control the urge for snacks. So you should limit the intake of alcohol, have a plan to drink one or two beer and stop. Rather than drinking just go on the dance floor and dance the night away. This will also help you burn the calories you intake from beer and the snacks.
Partying leads to Happiness
Partying smartly is the best way to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time with your friends allows you to ease the tension and stress your daily routine puts on you. Being surrounded by people whose company we enjoy, the music, and the overall atmosphere will have you leaving all your worries behind. Mentally it has a huge impact on us since the alternative wouldn’t be as satisfying. Staying home by yourself or doing something else wouldn’t make you as happy as spending a night out with friends at a party.
How to be smart about partying
- Exercise after your night out and before, by after we mean the next day
- Don’t drink too much or on an empty stomach
- Have lots of water during the day
- Snack on nuts
- Have vitamins the next morning
Partying isn’t as bad as you think. You can party and have fun while maintaining a healthy lifestyle. You can even throw your own party if you have a place. A house party or a costume themed party is a great way to have friends over. Costume themed party for Halloween or based on a movie like Grease costumes are a hit with both friends and family.
