The New Year is creeping up on us and I bet you’re already starting to think about your goals and objectives for the following year! But, Christmas comes first and sometimes we get a touch of jingle fever to stop exercising and start relaxing! Relaxing is a must but there’s no reason you can’t keep up with your health as it’s a priority too.
Here are 3 reasons why you should exercise on Christmas day! You won’t regret it … I promise 🙂
It’s good for you
We all know that getting your body moving is not only good for your health but also your mentality. This is the perfect way to set your mood up for the special day so why give up on Christmas? Get up, get sweaty, have some fun, and try to get the family involved as well!
It will make you smile
Exercise may be hard while you’re doing it but I am 100% sure when you finish, you’ll be smiling and feeling on top of the world! It will release those wonderful endorphines and can only add to the Christmas cheer! Switch out your normal workout music for upbeat Christmas tunes…sounds pretty perfect to me!
Avoid the post-Christmas binge guilt
Christmas is full of good food, wine, and treats and I, for sure, will be one to consume copious amounts of all that good stuff just like you should too – SO smash out a quick session and get a good sweat on to combat those negative “oh I ate too much thoughts”.
Have a very Merry Christmas and be sure to try and fit some of that good ol exercise in! 😛
