Give Yourself a Fighting Chance
- Posted on: Dec 19 2016
During the season of giving, we can often forget all about our own needs. It’s so important to keep our health and fitness intact and yet, it is so easy to let it slide. With that impossible to-do list, the parties, the sweets, and the cold weather…we have a recipe for a health crisis! Here are some tips to practice self-care during the season.
Get OUT! We know it’s cold, but a little outdoor exercise in the freezing weather will do wonders for your fitness! Take advantage of Utah’s great outdoors and ski, snowboard, ice skate, or build a snowman. It will get your heart rate up and put a healthy glow in your cheeks.
GOAL! Setting fitness goals during the holidays can be a saving grace. Whether it is a daily minimum of cardio or perfecting your push-up form, a tangible goal can really help keep you on track.
Glue Yourself to the TV! We don’t mean that seductive Netflix binge, we are talking about workouts you can do at home. Your tight schedule might keep you from your favorite pilates class but there are plenty of options from YouTube videos to DVDs that can help you stay in shape during the holidays.
Go to the Mall! Enlist your friends to be your new workout buddies. Accountability is a major force in keeping fitness goals intact and on track. Maybe you can even meet at the mall and finish some shopping while doing high steps, walking lunges, or festive mall walking. Whatever you decide, everything is more fun with friends!
We hope this reminds you to take yourself, your health, and your fitness into account during this season of giving. Putting yourself on the top of your list will help you provide that special holiday for others. Whatever you need, you deserve to have! Happy holidays!
