This is a blog post on how to stay healthy and fit during the Christmas season. As we approach the holiday, many of us overindulge in food and drink which can lead to weight gain and health problems. There are some simple steps that you can take this year that will help keep your body healthy!
1. Take a Walk After Dinner
One of the best ways to work off extra calories is to take a walk after dinner. It’s a great way to get some fresh air and exercise, and it can help digestion as well. If you live in a colder climate, bundle up and go for a walk outside! The cold weather can be good for your body and skin.
2. Walk-Up The Stairs Instead of Taking an Elevator or Escalator
Another simple way to stay fit is by walking up the stairs instead of taking an elevator or escalator. This can be a great exercise for your legs, glutes (butt muscles), and arms – you’ll even get your heart rate up!
3. Drink Plenty of Water Throughout the Day
Water is essential for our health, and it’s better for us than any other beverage. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated and healthy. If you find drinking plain water boring, add some lemon or cucumber slices to give it a bit of flavor. You can also drink teas that are high in antioxidants and great for your health.
4. Get Out in Nature to Get Vitamin D
Vitamin D is essential for our health, and one of the best ways to get it is by spending time outside in nature. Exposure to sunlight helps our bodies produce vitamin D, so try to spend at least 30 minutes outdoors each day (preferably in the morning). If you can’t get outside, you can also take a vitamin D supplement.
5. Schedule Sometime Each Morning for a Workout or Yoga
If you’re struggling to find time for exercise, try scheduling some time each morning for a workout or yoga. This will help get your day started on the right foot and set the tone for the rest of the day. You can even do a quick 20-minute workout at home if you don’t have time to go to the gym.
6. Spend Less Time Sitting Around
Sitting for long periods is bad for your health, and can lead to weight gain and other problems. Try not to sit on the couch watching TV, playing video games, or surfing social media sites (such as Facebook) for more than 20 minutes at a time throughout the da yy. Exercise is also a great way to reduce stress and improve your mood, so try doing some yoga or going for a walk in the fresh air if you’re feeling overwhelmed.
