Eusebius McKaiser chats to wellness architect and health entrepreneur Stacey Holland on how to maintain a healthy weight during this time.

She says people are in a state of stress throughout the year and when they get to the end of the year, they want to switch off and forget those stresses, however, some also forget keeping healthy as well.
