How to Fit in Fitness During the Holiday Season

It’s cold☃️...

...you’re busy...

...and the focus is on food and family, not working out.

 

Don’t let the holidays set back your fitness goals. With a little discipline and determination, you can stay on track and enjoy your traditions and time off.

Try these tips:

Power walk between errands.

Walk an extra block or lap while you’re shopping or walking to a friend’s house to drop off a card or gift.

Get the family moving.

Sometimes easier said than done; but instead of a board game or a movie, encourage your family to get up and move. Go for a walk, go roller or ice-skating, or just put on some music and dance around the living room.

Give yourself a present.

New workout clothes, new fitness equipment, a new fitness tracking device or a new gym membership might help you stay motivated when you’re tempted to take it easy. Look for holiday discounts and specials.

Start a new family tradition.

Many communities have holiday-themed walks or runs between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Sign up with family or a group of friends, and plan to do it again next year.

Keep workout clothes and shoes in your car.

If you’re always prepared, it’s easy to stop at a park, gym or walking track and fit in a workout on the go.

Go sightseeing on your feet.

If you’re traveling for the holidays, take a walking tour of nearby attractions and landmarks. Make sure you check the weather and dress appropriately.

Don’t get discouraged.

If you fall off the wagon and skip a workout or have an extra holiday cookie, chalk it up to being human and resolve to do better. Don’t let a little step back become a big backslide.

 

Make a plan now to fit in fitness — and enjoy a healthy holiday without missing out on the seasonal fun!
