The holiday season is now in full swing and with less than a week to go, last minute shopping and preparing is consuming most of your spare time. In these moments, it’s tempting to relegate your workouts to “I’ll try to fit it in” status but this usually translates into zero workouts until after the New Year. By making your workouts optional they are no longer a priority and it’s much too easy to forget or blatantly ignore them. Failing to plan is one of the biggest reasons people fail to workout during the holidays.
Rather than giving up it’s time to start planning. By scheduling specific workouts over the next two weeks you will greatly increase the likelihood of following through. Look at your calendar now and create appointments for yourself to workout. If you don’t have an hour to commit, even a 20-minute workout is better than NO workout, but make the commitment to do what you can each day. Stay committed, stay strong and stay healthy; the new year is almost here!
