Stay Motivated

With the holidays here there is always lots to do. We spend all day running around and at the end of it we wonder where it went. some things you can do to help yourself out are

1. Plan your day so you can get a workout in. If you plan what time you are going to workout in then that's half the battle. If you wait until "later" you may not feel like it, it may be shorter, or it may not even happen at all. Even if you get in 30 min you will feel better and its better than nothing.

2. Pack a lunch! of you are going to be out all day bring some good food from home (fruit, veggies, a protein source, unsalted nuts + seeds. By snacking on these good things you will find that you are less likely to grab anything while you are out and about to fill the hunger gap and once again you will feel better for it.

3. Get to bed early! We are exposed to more germs now since we (and the rest of the city) are out and about in malls, stores, etc it seems like everyone is sick. Now you are touching that thing that someone just sneezed on and with less sleep and more stress on your body you are more susceptible to pick something up...

4. Relax! The holidays are supposed to be fun. Breathe and enjoy the time with family and friends. If you keep rushing through them then that's all you will remember about the holidays.

Rest, recover and plan ahead.

Be Creative
