Staying Active for the Holidays

While the holidays can be extremely fun, they can lead to a lot of sitting, and of course eating.  It’s important to try and keep active and watch what your intake of food an alcohol.  Here’s a few recommendations to get you through the winter holidays!

  • Moderation is key!  Moderate your food intake (especially those sweets), alcohol intake and time spent sitting or laying down.
  • Exercise!  Take a family member out with you for accountability.  Walk the block a few times.  Cut out time to get your blood flowing.
  • Elevate our legs!  If you are experiencing some discomfort, try elevating your legs while hanging out on the couch with family.
  • Sit correctly!  If you are having lots of family gatherings that require a lot of sitting, refrain from crossing your legs for extended periods of time.
  • Wear loose fitting clothing!  Items like Spanx or or tight pants can restrict the blood flow to your groin area.
  • Wear good shoes!  If you happen to be standing or cooking a lot over the holidays, good shoes and good posture are very helpful

We hope you enjoyed these recommendations and hope you have a great holiday season!
