Most of you may have Thursday and Friday off this week. For many people, the holiday season with longer weekends and big dinners/parties can result in falling off the fitness wagon. This is compounded with the days getting significantly shorter (shortest day is December 21st). But it doesn’t have to be that way.
In fact, additional time off should offer you even more opportunity to get your health and fitness back in order. So here are a few ways for you to keep up with your routines even if you have a shorter work week.
Catch up on your sleep. If you are well rested, you are more likely to have the energy to head to the gym or work with your trainer.
Keep alcohol designated for the weekend. Your sleep quality and your fitness goals will thank you.
Go to the gym with another buddy who is off of work. You can make this even better by joining a gym that has a group of people that support you and your goals.
Too cold to run outside? Climb the stairs for 20 minutes. You’ll be surprised by how intense that can be.
Start now. Don’t wait for the new year to hit to make changes. 2020 is five weeks away. You’ll be surprised by what you can accomplish in that little time.
