I know it can be hard to stay on track with your workouts during the chaotic holiday season. Yet it’s arguably more important than ever to get your workout in to help with stress relief, digestion, immune support and all the extra eating.
That’s why this week we’re Finding Fun With Fitness! I’m excited to share some ideas with you to make staying active more fun and to get the whole family involved. Everyone wins!
First off, it’s important to always have fun with your workouts and keep things fresh. There is something to say about challenging yourself and trying different things. But if you are really struggling to enjoy your workouts, that’s a problem. Especially during this time of year, if you don’t enjoy your workout, you are much less likely to get it done with the busy holiday schedule.
Sometimes you need to just go back to an old favorite that you know and love, something that you are familiar with and can truly enjoy during this crazy time. Whether it’s running, biking, dancing, lifting, or another sport – do what you love and have fun with it! Now is not the time to push through trying something new that you don’t even like. Save that for the new year when motivation is higher.
Bottom line… just have fun! Move your body in a way that brings you joy. Also, when you’re enjoying it, your family is more likely to join in. Invite them workout with you and set the example for the whole family! In addition, this time of year is a great way to inspire even more people while you see extended family and friends.
