Healthy Holiday Jump Start 2016

vibrantWith Thanksgiving just a week away, let’s consider what we can do to stay sane, energized and fit as we roll toward the new year.

What do you want from 2017?  It’s never too early to be mindful and set the intention for your future self.  The clients I support often benefit from setting intentional, attainable process goals during this time to stay focused on their fitness, wellness, and self care.  What will you commit to intently now to keep yourself feeling good and resilient over the next few weeks?  Here are a few tried-and-true exercise ideas to get you started:

  • Move mindfully three times a week.  Choose an amount of time that’s realistic for you.  Typically, you can dedicate ten to thirty minutes to an activity that gets your blood flowing and relieves, rather than escalates, your stress levels.  It may be a walk, a yoga practice, or an at home workout.
  • Move on Mondays.  Set the tone of the week.
  • Move in the morning.  You take advantage of fresh energy and getting it done right away, setting a positive tone for the rest of your day and protecting your self care time from being imposed upon by something else.

I want to help support your journey!  From Black Friday through New Year’s, I’ll be sharing some of my best holiday mindfulness, food and travel tips with you via Primarily FIt’s Facebook home here.

I hope you feel amazing and inspired to take care of yourself.  Healthy change is always within reach.  Remember you are priceless.

Wishing you a blessed holiday season!
