The holiday season is one of the most joyous and hectic time periods of the year. There will be moments of joy when preparing for the big events that lie at the end of the year, followed by post holiday season blues. It is also a difficult time period as finances see a rapid outflow and the health track meets a red signal. It is the health goals that will be the topic of discussion for today and you will learn ways of returning back to your fitness routine after the holiday season:
De Stress Yourself
Being on the go throughout the holiday season and being mentally occupied majority of the time is exhausting. Once this time period of a roller coaster ride is over, you will feel that life and its normal routine will crawl back slowly. There will be this laziness that you might not be able to counter and the feeling that you need more holidays will linger. This is when you need exercise back in your life. When you welcome exercise you truly bid farewell to many of the stresses of the holiday season.
Getting Back on Track
Remember that your aim will be to encourage discipline back in your life and exercise is one way of doing so. There is a fixed schedule and a fixed routine to the life when you need to hit the gym at a certain time of the day. You tend to plan day accordingly and manage everything and incorporate the plans when there is discipline in life.
Socializing During Exercise
The holiday season surrounded you with many relationships. You met up with an old friend, paid a visit to an aunt and so on. Once the holiday season is over, there are chances that you will feel the absence of close relatives and friends. Therefore, take the exercise or fitness routine as a means of mingling with friends and family. Create a group of friends and go for a walk together. Invite another group to join you over for Yoga. It is said that when two people join forces, there is lesser chance of deviating from the right track.
Don’t Delay the Task
It is a natural tendency to delay ones work and put it off to the next day, but in reality the next day never really arrives. With constant delays, it is natural to lose motivation for working out and you might just keep on convincing yourself that it is too early to care. In reality, you should try and get back to the fitness routine as soon as possible.
Build up Your Pace
If you feel like you cannot motivate yourself enough, start with something very basic. Exercise while in bed, this is the easiest to carry out as you do not need to tell your body to make an effort for that. Before going to sleep, stretch and exercise the thighs and the arms and slowly build the pace and move on to your original fitness routine.
Getting back to the routine becomes fairly simple when you stop delaying and start immediately (even if you start at a slow pace).
