Chrsitmas Top Tips!

It’s officially December! Whether or not you’re into Christmas, you can’t deny that it’s a fun and infectious time. It’s all about work parties, family get-togethers, good food and an atmosphere that no other time of year can compete with in London.

But with so much going on, it’s easy to let our health and fitness goals sit on the back-burner while we focus on everything else. Of course, this is completely normal – and taking one month out of the year a little easier when it comes to workouts is by no means anything you should feel guilty about.

But if you do want to make sure health and fitness stay just as much a priority as they normally do, we’ve got a few tips to help you stay organised, motivated and on top of your goals.

1 Fitness comes first

If you normally work out at lunchtime or in the evening, shift your workout to first thing in the morning. That way, it’ll be done and dusted before anything else can get in the way.

2 Swap mulled wine for mountain climbers

Seeing your friends during the festive period (and all year round, to be honest) is important. It’s the time of year when everyone makes an effort. So why not suggest a fun workout that everyone can do together instead of another boozy night out?

3 Make friends with your tupperware

It’s all about convenience at this time of year. Instead of just reaching for whatever’s quickest come lunchtime, try dedicating a couple of hours each weekend to prepping some healthy meals for the week ahead. It’ll save you time – and money – in the long run.

4 Get ‘appy

Feeling a bit frazzled by the chaotic Christmas period? It’s totally understandable. Making sure you put your mental health first should be a priority, and using a meditation app daily could help. Apps like Breethe, Calm and Headspace are all widely used to help people deal with anxiety and stress.
