The holiday season can be enough to derail even the most dedicated exerciser. With that being said, here are some suggestions to keep you motivated and disciplined and to help you stay fit through New Year’s.
3. Make Fitness a Priority
You’re busy, you’re stressed, it’s chilly out … so why not just take a break from your fitness program until the New Year? Slacking off on your fitness program during the holidays will only leave you with more pounds (and more stress) in the new year.
It is important to take an honest look at your schedule, and instead of trying to squeeze exercise into your schedule, take other things out. It is important to keep fitness a priority in your schedule.
Increase your time management skills over the holiday season. Organize your day the evening before. Prioritizing your tasks beforehand will help you find time to exercise. Each week, make it a priority to fit in at least three exercise sessions. If you don’t have a gym membership, try bodyweight exercise routines.
Bodyweight routines are exercises that need no equipment and can be done in your own home. There are many types of bodyweight routines, such as yoga, pilates, and aerobics. So, pop in a fitness DVD or download a workout on your MP3 player to get you going.
