As the holiday season approaches, it is important not to lose all the physical fitness you have worked so hard to improve throughout the year. Having said this, it is important to take a break from the everyday routine that you find yourself in, so that you are motivated to start afresh in the New Year. So, here are some suggestions on how you and your family can keep active during the festive season.
If you are staying home this holiday season, try to do different physical activities, such as walking in the park with your family or friends, taking a trip to the zoo, going ice skating, playing with your children in the garden, and swimming. Go to the gym and attend different classes that you normally wouldn’t be able to get to.
If you are going on holiday, enjoy a walk on the beach, swim, play with the kids, walk instead of taking the car or bus whenever possible, and take the stairs instead of the lift. Or, simply choose 3 simple exercises that you can do each morning to start your day.
Remember: you feel better when you keep active! Exercise also helps you relax. So, look for ways to stay active this holiday, rather than loafing around. Do enjoyable and different activities with your families. Most importantly, relax and have fun!
Merry Christmas and best wishes for a happy and healthy 2012!!!
