calorie holiday foods, snacks and celebratory beverages make managing a diet a challenge. And, having regular routines thrown off by family obligations, holiday partying and travel compounds the difficulty of adhering to exercise programs. Altogether, the holiday season can put hard-earned fitness results at risk. Here are a few great tips that can help residents of our Atlanta apartments keep fitness habits as a part of their holiday season activities.
1. SET A HOLIDAY FITNESS CHALLENGE
Baking and board games with family are standard holiday pastimes. But, consider picking one of the many mild winter weather days to try to get some family members or friends together for a short hike along one of the many spectacular Georgia trails. Sporting layered outdoor winter wear for an hour or two of fresh air is a refreshing opportunity. Or, for more ambitious efforts, challenge some family members or friends to start earlier in the year to prep for a local winter short-distance run.
2. FIND A HOLIDAY WORKOUT PARTNER
Recruit a member of your family or friends to willingly ignore the call of a comfy bed, and mosey down to our community’s fitness & cardio center or local park with you for a relaxing little walk or workout to increase energy, and help manage holiday stress. Getting out of a warm bed for an early exercise session is not as easy to brush off when you have a partner counting on you to help keep the motivation going, as the other half of a committed holiday workout partnership.
3. START A NEW FAMILY HOLIDAY TRADITION
Take the family outdoors to revisit favorite childhood wintertime activities, like sledding or ice skating. Or, dig out the old football or dodgeball and create a new annual team game. And, do be the one to get the dancing going for inside activity, or even a tournament of online competitive virtual sports. Anything to get the circulation going.
