How to Stay Active During the Holidays
Life kind of comes to a halt from Christmas Eve until after New Year but don’t let that be an excuse to stop being active.
Staying Active: No Longer a Holiday Challenge
The last week of the current year and the first few days of the next can either be really hectic or super calm. Between punch bowls and cozy mornings in bed, it can be easy to forget that it’s still important to give your body some time to relieve stress and stay healthy, so that when you kick things back into gear you don’t have to start from square one. Here are some tips to stay active over the holidays:
Enjoy the Outdoors
Winter is one of the most beautiful seasons of the year. Take advantage of what nature has to offer and plan something fun to do outside like snowball fighting, hiking, snowshoeing or something a little more extreme, like skiing. You can explore the outdoors while you burn some calories.
Flexibility takes hard work. Don’t throw it away during the holidays but find ways to work on your flexibility instead. Yoga is a great option to do in the comfort of your own cozy home. Doing basic yoga with some targeted stretches will help you stay bendy so you can go back to the dance studio as if you never stopped dancing.
Sign Up for a Holiday Run
There are so many holiday-themed races going on in most cities during the holidays. Take advantage of that and sign up. They are usually short runs for having that goal in mind. This will help you stay motivated and make you want to work out in preparation for the big day.
At Bella Diva Dance, we believe in the importance of spending quality time with our families. For this reason, the studio will be closed from December 22nd through January 3rd. Enjoy time with your loved ones but also, stay active so we can dance strong again on January 4th. Happy Holidays!
