The holidays can rob a lot of time from our usual schedules. Here's some helpful tips for keeping up with physical activity.
- 10am & 2pm. Walk for 15 minutes at 10:00 a.m. and then repeat at 2:00 p.m.
- Shorten your workout. In order to fit your busy holiday schedule, you may have to shorten your workouts. Shorten your workouts, but don't skip them altogether. Work out more intensely in the shorter amount of time, and you will break even.
- Pack your gym bag and put it by your front door the night before. Block your calendar for your workout time. Holidays are extra busy, but your health should not be less of a priority. Make a committment to yourself by setting up recurring appointments on your calendar...and keep them!
- Treat yourself for doing good but not with something that will be coutnerproductive to your efforts. (e.g. a piece of cake). Instead, opt for flowers, a massage, a new piece of workout clothing, going to a movie, buying new music for your iPod, etc.
