Tips to Keep Active Thru the Holidays

With the holidays fast approaching, it is important to have a plan in mind for dealing with them. A plan helps keep us focused on our weight management goals throughout the season. By increasing the amount and frequency of physical activity, you can burn off those extra calories and look and feel better than ever. One of the most effective ways to maintain focus is to frequently bombard your brain with cues and prompts to exercise:
  • Put your walking shoes next to the bed so that you step right into them when you wake up or put your gym bag in a place where you bump into it throughout the day.
  • Leave a pair of shoes, shorts and a T-shirt in your car so that you are ready anytime.
  • Put up notes in the house, set an alarm clock or send yourself an e-mail as a reminder to exercise.
  • Set up a workout appointment with a buddy or get a personal trainer who will hold you accountable for your exercise schedule.
  • Provide yourself with options for exercise so that if one option is undesirable, the other is acceptable.
