Hoppin’ for a Happy Holiday

Gift yourself big this season with the intention of moving your body in some way, everyday! You can bring balance to this hectic time of year by taking time each day to ramp up your heart rate and respiratory effort, work up a light sweat, and move the big muscles in your body to elevate your energy level, mood, and stamina.

The faster-paced schedules, fitting in many more activities than usual, as well as parties and goodies everywhere, can raise the level of catecholamines (stress hormones) in your system, leading to fatigue and irritability, for which routine physical activity is a perfect antidote!

It doesn't have to be an Olympic effort...going for a walk is the most fun and accessible activity, and the price is right! Don't let winter weather get in the way--walk up and down stairs for several minutes, or find a stationary bike to ride or a treadmill to walk on; you get the idea!

Just Do It, as they say. Hoppin' for a Happy Holiday will be the best gift you receive!
