Here are some tips and tricks to stay active during the holiday season:
Choose activities you enjoy. Try a variety of activities, then rotate among the ones you enjoy to fight off boredom.
Have specific goals. Set SMART goals (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-bound).
Schedule exercise time. Put exercise times on your calendar and honor them as you would any other event.
Track your progress. Seeing how you’ve progressed over time is a great motivator to keep going!
Reward yourself. Think about and write down how you will reward yourself when you accomplish a fitness goal.
Be prepared for setbacks. If you get off-track, review your motivation and goals, find support and get back on the road to a healthier you.
