Staying Healthy
During the

Busy during the Holidays? Here are some tips to help you stay on track with your health and fitness goals!

Make small changes:

  • Cut back on soda.
  • Eat smaller portions of your favorite holiday delights.
  • Drink more water. 
  • Take the stairs while shopping.
  • Beat the parking traffic and walk to shop.
  • Make these changes into healthier habits.

No time to go to the gym?

  • Fit in 15-minute at-home workouts to your daily schedule.
  • Do short workouts any time: during movie night, while cooking, whenever!
  • Any exercise is better than no exercise!     


  • Holidays are all about the meals and celebrating with your loved ones. So keep in mind:
  • If you know you’re going to a dinner party at night, have a lighter meal during the day.
  • Food is meant to be enjoyed, so pick the dish that you like the most as your main meal of the day and enjoy healthier options for other portions.
  • Focus on the importance of the holidays: spend quality time with loved ones.
  • Slow down and enjoy each bite of your favorite meals.
