Health Tips for Football Fans Staying up Late to Enjoy World Cup
The 2014 World Cup will begin in Brazil tomorrow! Football fans watching matches late at night are recommended to pay attention to some health tips so as to enjoy the festivities while also lowering the risks of damaging health in the process.

Football fever is spreading like wildfire around the globe as teams and fans gear up for World Cup 2014 which begins in Brazil on June 12. However, viewers in China will have to watch the matches in the wee hours of the morning. Will you be sacrificing your sleep to join in the excitement? The answer is sure to be a resounding “Yes” for most fans!

However, insufficient sleep can compromise your immune system, making you more susceptible to illnesses. It will also affect your work performance and increase risks of accidents and injury. Here comes the question: how to enjoy the festivities while also lowering the risks of damaging your health? Here are some expert tips for football fans.

Strengthen nutritious support

Choose food rich in vitamin B, fat and protein, such as milk, beef, pork, fish and beans.

Nuts such as walnuts, jujubes, longans and peanuts are also recommended to fight fatigue.

Drink sensibly

Choose drinks with lower alcohol content. Dilute alcoholic beverages by adding ice.

Alternate between alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks

Drink green tea to refresh yourself. For those with digestive problems, use Chinese wolfberries to make tea.

Reserve time to do exercise

Do exercise according to your age and personal interest to improve health. When you feel less energetic and sleepy, you should pause to do some gymnastics, tai chi or outdoor movement.
