How to stay motivated to exercise just before Christmas!

Staying motivated to exercise just before Christmas can be a challenge due to the busy holiday season and the colder weather in many places. However, maintaining a consistent fitness routine during this time can help you stay energised and manage stress. Here are some tips to help you stay motivated to exercise before Christmas:

Set Realistic Goals:

Establish achievable fitness goals that consider the holiday season's challenges. This could be maintaining your current level of activity rather than pushing for significant gains.

Create a Schedule:

Plan your workouts in advance and schedule them into your calendar. Treat them like important appointments to help you prioritise exercise amid the holiday festivities.

Find a Workout Buddy:

Enlist a friend or family member to be your workout partner. Having someone to exercise with can make the experience more enjoyable and hold you accountable.

Try Festive Workouts:

Incorporate holiday-themed workouts to make exercise more fun. Consider activities like ice skating, winter hiking, or festive fitness classes.

Short, Intense Workouts:

If time is a constraint, opt for shorter, high-intensity workouts. Quick and effective sessions can help you stay on track without taking up too much time.

Reward Yourself:

Treat yourself to a small reward after completing a workout. It could be a healthy snack, a hot bath, or some quiet relaxation time.

Stay Active Throughout the Day:

Look for opportunities to stay active in your daily life. Take the stairs, walk during phone calls, or do quick stretching exercises during breaks.

Remember the Benefits:

Remind yourself of the physical and mental benefits of regular exercise, especially during a potentially stressful time. Exercise can help boost your mood and energy levels.
