As we approach the holiday season, we must remember all the physical effort we have put in throughout the year to improve our health. Having said that, it is important to take a break from the everyday routine that we find ourselves in, so that we 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 holiday season.
If you are staying home this season, try to do different physical activities, such as walks in the park with your family or friends, going to the zoo, going ice skating, playing with your children in the garden, or swimming. Go to the gym and attend different classes that you normally aren’t able to get to.
If you are going on holiday, walk on the beach, swim, play with the kids, walk instead of taking the car whenever possible, and take the stairs instead of the lift. Choose 3 simple exercises that you can do each morning to start your day.
Remember: you will 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 2014!!!
