Guest Report - Don't Let Exercise Slip Over The Holidays

 
The holidays embrace traditions like spending time with family and friends and feasting on delicious holiday foods.  Unfortunately, fesitve eating can lead to unwanted weight gain...just ask Santa!  Nearly 60% of adult Americans are not exercising on a regular basis.  This lack of physical activity is a top risk factor for chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, cancer and high blood pressure. 
 
This holiday season, don't let exercise slip to the bottom of your list.  Try a few of these tips to get you moving:
  • Develop a fitness ritual:  rituals create familiarity and control.  Try setting a regular time to workout or commit to a regularly scheduled fitness class.  Set a reminder on your smartphone or add it to your calendar like you would for an important meeting.
  • Try the buddy system:  a fitness partner can keep you motivated and provide added support.  Knowing that someone else is relying on you to help hold them accountable is also a great motivator.
  • Make the most out of your last minute shopping trips by taking a few laps around the mall or grocery store before you stop and shop.
  • Bundle up and head outside:  try some outdoor activities like sledding, skiing, or ice skating to burn calories and get your heart pumping.
  • Take an evening stroll:  explore different neighborhoods by taking a brisk evening walk to enjoy the holiday lights and decorations. 
Make the most out this holiday season by increasing your physical activity.  You will certainly "Feel Better and Live Longer!".
