When the holiday season picks up, our personal lives often take a seat on the back burner. This can affect our workout routines, mental health, physical health and everything in between. The good news is there are things you can do to not only put yourself first but to prevent yourself from hitting the holiday slump. Our team at Wisniewski Chiropractic is here to provide solutions, help you live your best life and stay motivated this holiday season.
It is important to keep your body moving and your mental health in check in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The holidays are a busy time of year so scheduling gym time might take some extra planning. If you find yourself busy going to holiday festivities after work, go to the gym before work and start your day off on the right foot! An early morning workout might take some adjusting to get used to, but it will free up time in the afternoons and evenings to make planning events even easier.
It’s okay to say no sometimes! Overcommitting to social engagements can not only drain you mentally but also physically. Your mental and physical health matters! Take some time for yourself to do what you love.
When schedules get busy, it becomes harder and harder to find the motivation to go to the gym. If you find a gym partner to hold you accountable, not only is getting up on cold mornings easier but you’re less likely to skip!
If bad weather has you needing to hunker down at home, do bodyweight workouts. Bodyweight workouts are a great alternative if you don’t have access to equipment but still want to put in some work. A good bodyweight workout can be done in 20 minutes or less! Not only are these workouts time-friendly but they are effective.
When it comes to the holidays, there’s no doubt the food that comes with it is some of the best! Living a healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in some of your holiday favorites. Don’t deprive yourself; that will lead to overeating. Limit yourself to one serving and save the rest for another time.
