The festive season is a busy time of year for everybody. There’s shopping to be done, parties to attend, children’s plays to prepare for, food to be cooked and drink to be drunk. Before we know it, fitness has dropped right to the bottom of the list, and the temptation is to let it all slide until the New Year.
It’s very easy to do, but, in terms of our health and wellbeing, it’s not the best approach. Fitting in group exercise during the festive season is not only one of the very best ways to ensure you stay healthy and work off any of those seasonal excesses we’re all susceptible to indulge in at this time of year, but also to give you the energy boost you need to keep productive.
And you’re certainly going to need it. Without putting too fine a point on it, this time of year is chaos for all concerned. Your schedule will likely be filled with all manner of friends and family get-togethers, work dos and even overtime, as you try and get everything wrapped up before the break – so you best be fighting fit.
However, with all these extra goings-on, it’s no easy feat finding the time needed to partake in your usual group exercise commitments. But this year can be different. Don’t concede to putting your health and fitness goals on the back burner for the best part of a month.
Instead, although you might have to shuffle your usual schedule to accommodate for your seasonal commitments, you should still strive to fit in regular group exercise workouts right up to the Big Day and beyond.
