The holidays are right around the corner. And while we love this time of year as much as the next, it’s also undoubtedly responsible for shaking up our daily routine. Between party planning, guests visiting, and all that Thanksgiving cooking (and eating), finding the time to focus on yourself, and your health, starts to feel like more of a luxury than it does a necessity.
However, staying healthy during the holidays is key to you having a happy holiday. And, it doesn’t have to be hard. That’s why we’ve put together a few pointers to help you maintain your health and fitness routine, and avoid feeling burnt out during all the holiday hustle and bustle.
Practice being “picky”
We would never ask you pass up on any of your favorite festive foods. But, “favorite” is a key word here. If you don’t like Thanksgiving stuffing, then say “pass” and grab a little extra pumpkin pie instead.
Sometimes we indulge in treats we don’t care for just because we think we’re supposed to, in order to adhere to the holiday spirit. But instead of piling your plate high with the Turkey Day classics you’re not crazy about, stick to the stuff you love.
Make time for a workout
During any overwhelming holiday plans and prep, the first thing to fall through is usually your regular fitness regimen. Which can actually leave you feeling even more stressed.
Making the time for a quick sweat session at the gym helps promote a strong immune system and boosts endorphins. Plus, you don’t even need to block out that much of your schedule to sweat it out.
When you’re busy, the key to killing it in the gym is having a plan. And you really only need three things to have a successful work out: a water bottle, your headphones (accompanied by your favorite playlist), and a deodorant that’s going to work as hard as you are.
In the market for a new one? Check out our Underarm Deodorant Cream. It lasts up to 7 days with just one application (because we know you don’t have time to worry about bad B.O.).
Remember to relax
At the end of the day, it’s important to remember what the holidays are really about. And that’s friends and family. What matters most is simply spending time with the people you love. So, remember to relax, and don’t sweat the small.
