The holidays can be a busy time—but don’t let yourself get swept away by the hustle and bustle. Keep your workouts fresh with these motivational tips 👀

1.-Relieve Holiday Stress

A good workout is one of the best ways to relieve seasonal tension. According to the Mayo Clinic, exercise helps combat stress by encouraging the release of endorphins (a.k.a; the body’s “feel good” hormones), fighting insomnia, increasing self-confidence, and clearing the mind.

2.- Beat the Winter Blues

The holiday and winter season can be a difficult time, especially as it comes to a close on January 1st. Fortunately, a consistent workout routine can help chase away the “winter blues”. Those “feel good” hormones (endorphins) also alleviate anxiety and depression! Scientists have found that even 5 minutes of aerobic exercise can relieve symptoms. Additionally, exercising in the brisk, fresh air can lift your spirits, clear your mind, and even help you work harder by reducing your rate of perceived exertion (how difficult an exercise feels).

Maintain Your Waistline

Regular exercise is vital to maintaining your waistline during the holidays. After all, tempting treats are everywhere this time of year! Aerobic exercise, such as biking, walking, dancing, and swimming, prevents seasonal weight gain. So, lace up your shoes and get moving! Your jeans will thank you.

Set a Good Habit for the New Year

Sticking to an exercise regimen during the holidays can set you up for success in the new year. It takes approximately 66 days to form a habit. By getting started early, you can reach all your goals in 2023!
