Find Time to Exercise During the Holidays

It can be hard to find time to exercise during the busy holiday season.

Here are a few reasons to find time:

  1. Exercise can help you and your family control your weight. Weight gain during the holiday season is common but staying on your exercise routine can help keep some weight gain at bay.
  2. Exercise can improve your mood and decrease stress. The holidays can be busy and stressful, use exercise to help wind down and relax.
  3. Exercise can be fun and a time for family to be together. Plan games and activities over the holidays that involve being active as a family to help you all stay on track!
Here are some fun games that will get the family moving:
  • Twister – Twister is fun for the whole family and gets everyone stretching and moving.
  • Chinese Jump Rope – You may remember this from when you were a child.  Another great way to get everyone jumping and moving.
  • Four Square – Four Square is a great classic game to get everyone outside and moving.
  • Bop It Bounce – This game gets you up and on your feet – for one or more players.
  • Freeze Frame – Gather a few stuffed animals, crank up some tunes, and boogie until someone pauses the music.
Keep moving this holiday season!
